A blog about my beautiful budgies.
Still got the bite!

Atilla has been spending a lot of time on her ttmss swing. Her lump is gradually getting bigger. I think she feels comfortable on that swing. She has started to sit leaning forward with her head underneath the mirror part. The position looks odd but it must help her feel more balanced.
I discovered recently that permission is still required to clean the ttmss swing. Silly me thought she might not have the energy to fight me for it, so the other day when she was the other side of the Manor, I whipped it out, turned my back (out of sight, out of mind?) & started cleaning it. I furtively looked around & there she was by my shoulder on the outside rope perch… she then put one foot on my shoulder to get to the ttmss swing. Oh…. she’s still territorial….. I’d better put it back quickly……
The cleaned ttmss swing was swiftly returned & I held out my finger to her to escort her back, which she graciously (I thought) accepted. However, no sooner had she settled on it & checked it was all in working order, she attacked my thumb with a “DO… NOT… TAKE… A…WAY… WITH…OUT… MY… PER… MISS… SION… FIRST!!!”
I got the subtle hint.
