Puddings & Toyboys

A blog about my beautiful budgies.

A cold shower

After all of the frenzied wing-flapping that I posted about earlier, I decided a cold shower was in order.  I was very much tempted to throw a bucket of cold water over them all, but settled for a gentle spray with tepid water.

At the time, Cagney & Bezukhov were visiting Thomas in the ferplast.  As far as I know, Thomas has never had a bath or misting so I was not sure how he would react.  Phineas was prowling around on top of the cage.

I prepared the ferplast by removing one of the bottom trays & also removing a couple of toys with mirrors (they rust so easily).  I sprayed over one side of the cage so any objectors could just move to the far side & stay dry.  The objector on this occasion was Cagney.  However, both Bezukhov & Thomas were happy to get wet.  I noticed Thomas rubbing himself across the bars to soak up the water droplets.  Hmm… this boy appears to like water & getting wet.  A good sign.

Meanwhile, Phineas was running around on top of the cage, getting wet in the process.

After their cold shower, I cleaned up the cage, returned the toys & watched Phineas, Bezukhov & Thomas dry off & get fluffy again.
