I've mentioned before that Calypso is the best scab-remover I have ever encountered. He is very gentle, daily testing the scab until it's ready, and then pulling it painlessly off. I have been very lucky in that I have not had the occasion to need his talents recently. Here's a picture of Calypso, eating some sweet potato:Thomas is not as lucky, and had a scab on his arm. I found him trying to convince first Rocky:
and then Beeps:
to remove his scab, but they weren't interested. Calypso's not a huge fan of Thomas, so his scab-removing capabilities are limited to me.
I must add that I find this kind of gross, but he doesn't eat the scab or anything like that. He's just trying to keep me well-groomed and ready to fly off at a moment's notice!
