This little guy of mine never ceases to amaze me by how smart he really is and how much he really does understand.
One night last week it was time for as I call it "quitin time". I say "Quitin time guys,time to get ready for night night" (I know, I'm goofy right? LOL)Then when they are in I cover the back part of cage and they get a "night night treat"-they each get a little piece of millet that i put on the floor. I say ok here's ur night night treat and they scurry down to get it. Anyway, Ziggy for some reason is usually already in at that time, but that night he was still playing on top of the cage. I tried a few times to get him to go in (still not hand tamed and won't step up)but nope, no good.And Levi will just go in when I say that or will just hop on my finger and I put him in.
I decide to wait a few minutes to see if Ziggy would go in on his own,in the mean time I got their little pieces of millet and set them on coffee table. Well Levi was more than ready for his treat and he went to the table and tried to start eating it. So I just picked it up and told him he had to wait. He was sitting on the couch with me and I told him no treat until Ziggy was in. Go tell Ziggy it's time for night night. Go on tell Ziggy time for bed...Well go get him. He sat on my shoulder and chatted a few more mins and THEN HA low and behold he went to the cage top chattered at Ziggy for a minute then flew to the playstand. Gave Ziggy heck until he joined him then flew right into the cage with Zig right behind him! OMG I was shocked! Told Levi he was SUCH a good boy.
Yeah, i thought maybe it was just a coincidence BUT the same thing happened again last night! I told Levi the same thing and this time he chattered at Ziggy on cage top then flew to other room with Ziggy right behind him back to their cage, landed right on the landing platform outside the cage door and Zig followed him in for bed. AMAZING!
I am SO very proud of my little dude. Whether it was just coincidence or not, I really don't know. But I seriously think he knows what I'm saying most of the time
And hubby witnessed it both times and was just as shocked as I was LOL
Sorry for the even longer than my normally long posts, but I just had to share. I am such a proud mommy I just couldn't stand it! LOL
