Telling that story about spiking Kyoko made me think about what Douglas would have done. Kyoko was pretty shocked, but everyone around us was laughing (I was mortified) and as I cradled my little girl, she started laughing too. So everything was fine.
But Douglas? He wouldn’t let me get off that lightly!
Whenever I preen him, and accidentally touch a blood feather, he will growl and give me a little nip. If i pull away before he can get me, he’ll run after me until he gets me, haha!
If he hurts himself… like if he fell off a perch while playing. He’d run up to me with his wing lifted (always the right one) and start whining like a dog. I will always respond with “awwwwww Douglasssssss!” and he would respond by whining like a hurt puppy.
He’s so silly.
