Abe's First Shower Story!
I was a little concerned, never having done it before, and with his hissing at misting, and stinks with sinks, he LOVED the shower!! I mean it! This is the first time I've been able to read what this (boy?) has signaled, and from what I can tell, he really really enjoyed it!
First I let him sit on the rail (we have glass shower doors, no curtain rod) and though he thought he saw another bird at first (his reflection) he wasn't too preoccupied. The whole time I was saying PRET-tee BURD-ee, and one by one introducing him to the sounds and sights. First the lights, (which I'm glad to know about now) and the ventilation fan (just in case its better to have it on) and then the water. I hopped in, "PREE-tee BURD-ee" over and over still. I thought, okay the water should be fine how it is, and then I thought okay, and put him on the floor, maybe he'd like to play down there. But he didn't seem too intrested... so I picked him up and let him sit on my hand with the water on me... Little beads from splashing *mist* were forming, and he started to fluff up like I've never seen him do before! (The good kinda fluffing.) So I help part of my hand under one of the little streams and he ducked his head under! It was SO neat! And then when he pulled his little head out, he shook (ya know what I mean, not shivered but shook like a quick fluff.) A couple times he even whistled, and I've learned he prefers to sit on my shoulder at all times, and that when on my hand, he likes my ring. HA HA
Well anyways, he had fun, and no stinks from him and no hissing, ... He really enjoyed it! He is drying off and he looks so pretty! Of course, "PRET-tee BURD-ee", yes yes.
(question, he'd duck his head in the stream right, but should I be concerned about the water he lets form in his nares? That was really the only thing I was concerned about... thanks!)
