The latest news: I can talk!!! Yes, I really do! And no, not one word, but two at the same time! For weeks now, Hilke called Jan several times a day with the words: "Jan, Coffee!" And that is exactly what I say now, in her voice. Listen for yourself... So finally, after the family had given up all hope, I can say my very first words!
I had a major panic attack! Jan and Sophia continued where they left off yesterday: they took me in the car again, closed the door (gently) and Jan started the car. Boy, was I scared. I tried to fly through the car window, to the back seat and on the front mirror. Finally, I crept under Sophia's arm and stayed there, panting. I hate the car. It messes up all my feathers.
