He was ‘hen pecked’

Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot is actually one of a pair. The tall person and De brought them both home one day last summer, before I was born.

Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot’s mate had a striking yellow and pink plummage that complemented Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot’s green and pink feathers.

Unfortunately, Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot’s mate was not very nice to him. The tall person noticed that she often pushed Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot off the perch and pecked him. I was astonished to learn this. Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot was hen pecked?

Anyway, on their second day at home the tall person put them on a table in the garden so that they could enjoy the afternoon sunshine. When he checked on them later the cage door was open and Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot’s mate was gone. 

The tall person is still uncertain how the little parrot escaped. The cage door had been fastened with wire but this had been undone somehow.

I know Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot would not admit it but I have a theory. I suspect that Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot was so fed up with his mate’s behaviour that he untied the wire fastening the door to the cage and pushed her out.

If my theory is correct it might explain why Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot is so crazy. His mind is still unbalanced from the tempestuous relationship he was in.

Don’t worry Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot. You still have me and I’ll never leave you!
