Merlin just adores Bandit, and most of the time Bandit will cave in to his begging and give Merlin’s feathers a good workout. This completely blisses Merlin out. He tolerates me scratching his head, but when Bandit is amenable, Merlin is in total heaven.
But Bandit still loves me best And working from home as I am, this is how most of my working day goes. Bandit on my shoulder cuddled up against my ear, and Merlin on the other shoulder, or balanced on my elbow so he can see Bandit better. It is not easy typing all day with a Pionus on your arm.
Bandit hates foot toys, but Merlin does love his pacifier. If Bandit is ignoring him, that is.
