I was away from Thursday until Monday, visiting family. I left Bennie with a friend of mine. I hate to leave him, but it isn't always possible to take him with me. Well, I was very glad to get him back last evening! I got to my place, but had to wait until my friend got home from work. I got 3 phone calls before hers and each time it was like, OH, I hope that's her! Finally she called and I went and picked him up. But when I got him home, he was decidedly "cool" towards me, like, How dare you leave me? But this morning he was his normal, happy cockatiel-self!
