Hi Tuki
Well, I was in big today. Talk about being in the dog house and we don't even have a dog! It all started when I got the urge to have my meals outside my cage. I worked out that I could open the food bowl doors from the outside. So, I just work my way down the cage pop the door open, perch on the bowl and dine. That was sort of OK. Mom and Dad thought it was clever and cute for a while but then Mom was not so keen. Something about the mess on the floor where I would drop or throw my food. Then I realised that the bar that keeps the food bowl in place was no longer there once the door was open. So all I had to do was stand on the door and I could then work the bowl out of the holder in the door and throw it on the floor. This was just so entertaining! I throw the bowl, it falls to the floor, it makes a BIG noise, the contents made a pretty pattern on the floor and wall. If there is company they laugh. What total fun! I was hooked. I would take ever opportunity to toss my food bowls. Well, Mom was not at all amused by my new pass time. She kept telling me that it was not to be done. She took to watching me and as soon as she saw me heading down my cage to open the food bowl door she would walk over and put me back on my perch. Problem is, by this time I am completely addicted to the bowl tossing thing. I finally manage to sneak down open the door and BANG, bowl and food on the floor. Well, Mom came over looking very firm and said 'Right,I've had enough.' and that is when I knew I was in trouble. I should have know. All the signs where there. Mom had already said 'I'm not having any of this Monty May' and 'Keep it up and you will be in big trouble Madam'. All obvious signs that Mom is near breaking point. Still the sight of the bowl spinning in the air, reflect light back at me as it fell to the floor. The almost bell like quality of the clang as it hits the tiles. The spray of the bowls contents, each time making a unique pattern on the tile floor. Beautiful! So I did time! Yes me, cage time and that wasn't the worst of it. Mom ignored me! ME! Oh it was terrible. Even my most pathetic 'baby' cheeps did not work like the usually do. It was the worst 10 minutes of my life. Thank goodness that is all over and Mom is back to making a fuss over me. Of course that bowl is still tempting. Hehehe. MM
