One of the most enjoyable aspects of life with an evolved dinosaur… err… parrot… is watching them take a bath.
When Bandit wants one he really wants one, and makes no bones about it by flying to my shoulder the minute I let him out of his cage after work, then yanking on my collar till I take him upstairs.
Merlin of course comes with (he will not be left behind), and he observes from the top of the shower door.
While Merlin prefers a shower, Bandit loves nothing better then sticking his head under a dripping faucet, then rolling around, feet secure in a wash cloth.
I do make him wait till I get my contact lenses out first. I’m not really sure why I do this, as he gets water all over my glasses.
He makes a huge mess splashing around.
I wipe everything down when he’s down and voila! Clean bird, clean bathroom.
