Actually, Pepper doesn't get out of cage time anyway. I felt so bad to think he'd be alone, but if that's okay, well, it makes me feel less bad for him.
But I wanted to share what happened yesterday when I went to visit. I came in and Pepper was sitting on the back of the couch! Yikes! I mean, Pepper knows me, but he has never really warmed up to me much. I approached him and spoke to him, but was afraid to actually offer him my arm or hand to step up on. He has tried to bite me while he was in his cage, but I thought since he wasn't in his "territory", it might be okay. Still I was hesitant. So I got a dusting wand and got him to step up on the handle. He hasn't been handled and was not too keen about that, but I did manage to get him back into his cage without trauma to either of us. I checked his cage and saw the access door to his water dish hadn't been closed securely. It is now!
Yes, I do know cockatiels are parrots, I just mean I don't have a large parrot. Maybe someday!
