I have a stand which I put on top of a trolley with drawers in and wheel it from room to room. The current trolley has broken due to the weight of parrot requisites in the drawers so I have got a new one which is different. Mitzi has seen it being put together and has fluffed up and crackled at it.
As a treat I give her little crackers which are actually meant for toddlers and she loves them. I was trying to tempt her out with one to get her on the stand but she was having none of it even though she was eyeing the cracker all the time. I offered it to Monty and he bit a piece off. The look on Mitzi's face was one of sheer disbelief and jealousy so I gave up trying to tempt her out and gave her the rest of the cracker.
Mitzi and Monty are hilarious with their different personalities. With my two, sometimes it is Manzi who is more afraid, and sometimes it is Maui. They make each other more brave though. Maui was not interested in the musical toy, and even got a bit jealous when Manzi was playing with it.
But Manzi is more afraid of big things, like a big box of toilet paper from Costco, whereas Maui doesn't pay stuff like that any attention.
I wonder if Mitzi thinks to Monty, "You traitor!!"
