Rocky plays ball! For 2 consecutive weeks I have played ball with him on the floor in the entrance way (after most volunteers have left). He seems to enjoy me tossing his green ball up, catching it, giving it to him to toss, and then retrieving it for him. Throughout the game he gabbles and grunts. He also likes hanging out with my husband Will (translation: situating himself in the dubious position of between my hubby's thighs and rubbing his head on the floor). Susanna told me that Rocky seems most comfortable if you get down on the floor with him, and talk quietly, which really does work. While I still have a healthy amount of fear and respect for Rocky, it is a pleasure to play with him, and lavish him with affection. Despite his rocky past, he's a delightful bird who continues to roll!
