The abandoned playgym

When Dalai came in from quarantine, his cage was placed where the playgym usually stands. The playgym was relegated to the other side of the room. Although it was just below one of their flight paths, they chose to ignore it & it gathered dust.
As it has been months since Dalai has been in his quarantine cage, I decided to move it out & reinstate the playgym to its original position. Before doing this, I spruced up the playgym – the dust was removed, Tweety Pie was cleaned up & I put lots of inviting, curly, chewy paper over it. I did not expect Bezukhov to descend on the playgym immediately as he is wary of change. Dalai had never known the playgym to be in the “new” location so I was not expecting him to blaze a trail to it.
It was not a surprise to me to find it would take 2 weeks for it to be used. Bezukhov landed on there, though I think he was spooked by something & landed there by accident. He stayed there for a bit though & had quite a chat in his old haunting place. Dalai seemed intrigued & flew by a couple of times but did not quite pluck up the courage to land.

Unfortunately, 3 weeks after Bezukhov visited the playgym, he has not been back. Tweety Pie must be feeling quite neglected.
