Hiya Sarabi!
So you've got company of the feathered kind! Cool. What's not cool is that the little guy's apparently got some issues and he's takin' them out on himself. I'm not sure there's anything I can add to the already impressive list of things being done for him. The snuggle buddy's a good idea, the pile of toys and shreddable stuff, the interaction and TLC he's gettin', it's all good. And yet, he's still beatin' up on himself. Bummer. Not too long ago my mom says she read an article about a Green Cheek who had a terrible habit of nipping when he was fully flighted but was a docile, sweet little thing when he was "grounded". I guess he felt like the boss when he had wings but decided he had to be nice when he was clipped. A wing-clip for now might help with the biting and hurting people. Maybe he's just one really confused birdie right now, needing human companionship but beating up on them when they offer to socialize with'm. Sure hope the cousin figures out he's in good hands and can settle down a bit before he demolishes his feathers further. Thsoe mutation GC are sure pretty little birds. He's got a light-colored beak, right?

How are YOU? Do you currently have a cat buddy in your life? How's life in Colorado Springs these days? Have there been rain lately, enough to lower the fire danger some? Right now it's raining like crazy, for the first time since June. It's not a thunderstorm but a good solid RAIN that's lasted for several hours so far. Everyone's elated about it.... except me 'cause I got carried out to the parrot pen and left!! Yup, I got a shower in the rain! Mom finally came back out and got me, commenting on the way back in that wasn't sure but that I was the wettest she'd ever seen me. I found no humor in her wise-crack observation. Truthfully though, I didn't mind it much. In fact at one point, I was holding my wings out and turning my head from side to side. Now the Greys that live here, oh man! — they were running around, squawking like a bunch of ninnies, acting like they were about to melt! Me and the Zon-Guy, Alfie, we honestly liked it. You ever been in the rain, Sarabi?

Lookin' forward to hearing more about your cousin and how he's gettin' along. Thanks for comin' by.
