Kissy has her more active moments but otherwise she's pretty slow, she kind of reminds me of a sloth lol because she has weird toes and she's always hanging upside down! She loves sleeping though and sleeps in the weirdest positions! Here's an example lol Linnie yoga

She looks awesome! She really likes and trusts you. That's what our Comet does too. He will sit for an hour like that! And he gets mad if you try to move him! Does she push on your arm when she she sits like that?

Scooter has bird ADD too and will only sit sometimes, but he's getting better and will sit for longer now

I think linnie people call this an electric hug.

thanks everyone! we have 1-2 solid "snuggle" sessions a day now (2 because I'm home this week from work) and she seems so much more content. She wants to come out a lot and if I walk away from her cage she will fly off and try to follow me and scream her head off like she's dying she also seems to be pooping less frequently when she is out with us, so that says to me she is getting a lot less nervous when she is away from her cage

thank you to everyone for your support!
