On a lark, I got out Annie & Petey tonight. To my surprise, Annie basically ignored him after they clacked beaks twice. Petey is improving at stepping up and the barks are steadily declining. He ate his dinner pretty well, too. Tonight, he climbed down to the perch closest to me. I think he's interested in the skritching my other guys get but is not quite ready for that step. He did more than just stand on the food cup, too. He actually climbed around. Hanging out in peace. Here, Annie is SHATTERING that branch as Petey looks on with interest. I just bought this tree a week ago! Sheesh. If I act pathetic, can I get a nut or something???
