Default Cloud - Ongoing Thread

Cloud has been here for 5 days now (if you include the night we brought him home)

He eats millet from my hand and shows interest when I talk/sing to him or show him YouTube videos.

But today he didn't show any fear when I reached my hand in the cage. Maybe a little cautiousness, but maybe it was curiosity?

He let me pet him, scratch his cheek and he eventually even stepped up on my finger a couple times. Do I think he's getting used to me fairly quickly.

I'm not sure about his upbringing, but at this point I wouldn't rule out him being hand fed. He's just so mellow it seems too fast for him to be so comfortable with me.

I think there's a good chance of a bond forming there.

I'll update again when there's more to be said. I was just too excited not to share.

That's wonderful, Elizabeth!

Since he was from a pet store, I doubt he was hand fed, but he does sound very calm and friendly. As long as you're working at his pace and he's not uncomfortable with anything, it sounds like he really is adjusting wonderfully and truly is starting to get used to you very quickly!

Keep up the good work and I look forward to hearing lots more about him!
