The other day I heard a loud clunk. When I looked up, Phineas was on the floor of his cage looking a bit confused.
He had jumped on his ttmss swing & the perch section gave way. Poor boy. That was his bedtime swing & his all round chill out, best perching position.
I checked his swing to see if it could be repaired in any way, but the plastic hole that holds a side of the perch section had a gap in it. I decided that a replacement was needed. In the meantime, I gave him the toyboys ttmss swing. They do not use their swing nearly as much as Phinny uses his so I thought they would not miss it too much. Phineas had his bedtime swing back. He was pleased & order in the universe had been restored.

You can see from the photos above that the replacement swing is very colourful. A perch on the toyboys’ swing had a hairline crack in it so I merged it with Phinny’s swing.
After an internet search I found the same swing but the cost of postage was extortionate. I decided to go for a slightly different swing. When it arrived, I put it in the toyboys’ manor. As yet it has not been touched….

It sounds like Mr P has coped extremely well with the traumatic events to end all traumatic events: the collapse of your bedtime swing!
I agree – he did cope well. No hysterical drama from Mr P. 🙂
