Unusual goings-on

As we know, Phineas loves Cagney.  Although Cagney likes to flirt with Phinny occasionally, he is otherwise ‘not into him’.

Until today?

This morning, Phineas unusually, did not have an in-cage jiggy-jiggy but seemed satisfied with regurgitation.  I made a mental note of this…. he would surely need a ‘service’ at some point during the day.  When it came to out-of-cage time, Phinny was indeed quite hyper.  It did not take long for him to initiate a boogie-woogie session on my hand.

Give us a kiss, Cagney!

Give us a kiss, Cagney!

Pass me the bucket...!

Pass me the bucket…!

Cagney was interested in his progress but that is not unusual.  Whilst Phinny is busy jiggling about on my hand, Cagney jumps on my thumb to shout encouragement & often at this point Bezukhov will come to investigate too.

However, today events took a surprising turn.

Cagney showed extra interest!  As he was getting excited, Bezukhov came & sat on my other hand but Cagney chased him away, then quickly returned to a fluffed up, frenzied Phinny & jumped on his back!!!

Phineas was not prepared for this new development (though he may have dreamt of it many times!) & lost his balance & fell off my hand & landed, fortunately, on my soft slippers.  Cagney meanwhile, also fell as Phinny disappeared from underneath him, but remembered he had wings & flew to the manor.

Both Phineas & Cagney reconvened on top of the manor & proceeded to regurgitate.  It was not clear who was feeding who but Cagney definitely did a few head bobs so may well have contributed.

When all was finished, Cagney retired into the manor & sat with his mate Bezukhov.  I kept a close eye on Bezukhov afterwards as I did not like the thought of him being left out, or rather feeling left out.

After all the activity, Phineas was hot; his wings were away from his body to cool him down.   All seemed to return to ‘normal’, though I am not sure what ‘normal’ means here anymore!

    My GOODNESS!!! Who’d have thought it?! You can’t blame poor old Bezukhi for needing a bucket.
