Hi Sonny VDO...Blanche here!
Once again, excuse the copy/paste…mom gets Caymus and I so behind and then this is what we’re left to do. It’s not like we keep her that busy…ok, so yeah we do. (hehe) So my toe, uh, yeah, half of it’s gone. The circulation at the tip was just too bad and the little bugger just fell off on it’s own. There’s still some dead skin on there, mom can tell, but it’s doesn’t seem to really bother me and I’m keeping up my good spirits so I’m still on track to go for my vet check-up on Saturday. Mom, on the other hand is not a happy camper. She’s been concentrating more now on the fact that all this happened from a nail trim. So far the owner has been wonderful and helped with medical bills, but I have health insurance so mom didn’t worry about it too much. But now that this experience is (hopefully) winding down, mom’s got a whole series of pictures of what I’ve had to deal with over the past month and is going to ask the owner to instill in her employees what exactly can happen from even one mistake. That when working on a birds feet, to NOT take phone calls, talk to other employees or look away for even a second. And that if a bird has their feet in that tight of grip, then to wait and try again in a few minutes while the bird relaxes, or advise the parront that the bird is too stressed and should be taken to a vet to have the job done instead. (uh oh…I sense mom’s blood pressure going up…better change the subject)

As evidence of my happy mood I took a bath this weekend! And oh did I splash! Mom rolls my playstand into the center of the tile whenever my bath time mood strikes but I set a new record for water splash-zone distance. Once, that foolish cat tried to run past but I got him gooooood! I was having a heck of a time sufficiently soaking my backside so for the first time EVER I let mom spray me. Since it was in the low 70’s outside, mom made sure to keep me in the direct sunshine until all my feathers dried. Plopped on a chair on the uncovered part of the patio and thought we would melt.

Gotta get along to the next page…we’ve got a squash baking in the oven and I’m anxious for lunch. Big Amazon (((hugs))) to you!
