Hi Folks.
« on: February 09, 2018, 01:43:58 PM »

Thought I'd pop on to say hi and write something positive for a change rather than just posting about Yeller when she's ill.  I hope you are all doing well and the little bundle of mischievous feathers are doing good too

About illness, she's been completely fine and remains in good health.  Phew, those vet bills were the real killers.

Since I've been away, Yeller has acquired a truly bizarre and sometimes hilarious fascination over cups of tea. She goes absolutely bananas when she hears the kettle going in the kitchen and jumps right onto my hand, then flaps all the way through to the kitchen.  Dragging me with her.  She then keeps saying "Ooooh, I want a Bruuuuu" (brew) and makes all the water pouring, milk pouring and tea spoon noises on cue.  :rofl:

Once the tea is made she then becomes very possessive over the cup and contents.  She'll sit with me making all the drinking noises and if I've got the audacity to leave the cup half filled, she'll guard the cup with her life.  The most hilarious thing about it, if someone goes near the cup in my absence, she'll call out "Daddy, daddy, daddy".  Absolutely no idea how this fascination came about.  She's crazy.

do you have that level of love for a cuppa? Seems she’s latched on to something that someone in your home loves & she now loves it. Or she might just like the sounds &’the smell, she’s a grey so who knows

I work from home and have 1 coffee in the morning and maybe 2 cups of tea up to 5pm. It's not as if I go overboard.  She's also really partial to the cups themselves.  She'll stand next to empty ones and either bash her beak against them or rest the tip of her beak against the rim.  She's actually fallen asleep like that 2 or 3 times.  :rofl:

She doesn't even attempt to bite them as she's watched carefully.  Just derives a lot of comfort from cups. lol.  It's only my cups she becomes really protective over.  Not in an aggressive way, just shouts out daddy 3times, like a kid would if they were being teased by their older sibling(s). She makes a bee line for them too if they're close to her cage.  She does the same with remotes/phones, but those are done in an aggressive way as she hates them.  Like she hates bare toes.

That’s so very cute most parrots hate toes, my grey loves them for some reason, she rests her beak on mine! Makes me very nervous
