At my new apartment, I have a ledge in my shower, which allows my parrots to perch there, like this:
To quiet him down, I placed him on the edge of the tub, so he'd be closer to me. This worked, but once I'd exited the tub, he started goofing around and fell into the tub, still full of water as I'd only started draining it. I grabbed him out, but he was soaked.
This required me to wrap him up in a towel and dry him off, which he didn't mind at all (good thing this wasn't Max, as she would not have tolerated such behavior on my part!)
I made a little video of him, as he is just so adorable. I love it when he makes his big kiss noises, and I *think* he might be saying "kiss" and/or "Calypso," though he garbles a lot, so it just sounds like nonsense.
He is the happiest of all of us about Thomas no longer being in our lives. Maybe someday I will be able to get to that level of happiness about being alone!
