Smile Breakthrough!

So this morning Artoo accepted and ate some millet that I held out to her after I cleaned out her cage. This was a first!

Then, when I was putting her food cup with breakfast in her cage, she stayed on the perch and just turned around to watch me do it - even though I was super close to her. After that I offered her millet again from my hand as a reward for being so brave and she accepted and ate some. She got lots of praise both times.

Before today's breakthrough, I tried offering her millet now and then and she'd back away. But I'd tell her that it was okay and we'd try again another time and that she was a very good bird.

I actually teared up a bit over this. Heh.

Congratulations to both you and Artoo for reaching this important milestone!



You are doing a great job with Artoo by allowing her to set the pace.
She will definitely build a much stronger trust in you over time because of that.

Artoo

Thanks everyone! <3 <3 <3 Every day I am so grateful that this little bird found her way here.

I have a home office, so I work from home, and my husband telecommutes so he also works from our home office. Artoo is with us in the office all day and gets lots of attention. It's really awesome!
