Question Breezy vs. Slipper

This is such a weird post for an equally weird action. I've had Breezy for a long time... about 12 years. In my 12 years of owning this delightful little fuzzball, I've NEVER seen him do this.

He is attacking my slipper. He only seems to have interest in it when I'm either trying to wear it, or when I am near it. If I am holding him and am within a ten foot radius of my slipper, he will fly off my hand and begin [pretty vigorously] attacking this single slipper.
Why does he do this?

Note, Breezy is very old, and his age is catching up to him. He vomits regularly, stays puffed up, sleeps 80% of the day, and is loosing more and more balance daily. Even then, this is very odd behavior.

how funny!
He seems determined to have the slipper!! bless.

As for age I don't know much about older budgies and I'm sorry to hear about how his age is effecting him - hopefully someone will be along shortly to help you out

Ok, I read your other post about Breeze being sick and vomiting and being old. Now that you posted the slipper picture, I just wonder something... Is it possible that he swallowed a tiny piece of fuzz off of the slipper and it got stuck in his crop? It would explain his being sick.
