Cooper’s Book Report

This month’s book is Charlie’s Enchanted Garden by Gillian Shakespeare.

Charlie is playing hide and seek with his human Sophia. But it isn’t Sophia who finds him, it’s the cat! To escape, Charlie flies out the window. But now he’s lost. Will he be able to find his way back home?

In the enchanted garden, Charlie meets Isobel the fairy, Norman the gnome, Pete the pigeon and Simon the snail. With the help of his new friends, Charlie evades the cat once again and finds his way home.
Cooper loved the illustrations in the book. She thinks it would be fun to be in a garden. But not one with a cat!
She was glad Charlie found his way home, but hopes that Charlie’s humans will keep the cat away from him.

Home Again, Home Again

The flock recently spent a week at a hotel. We were having some work done on the house and didn’t want the birds exposed to any toxic fumes.
The budgies did well. Sido did not like her travel cage. She was happy to be out (and on us) most of the visit. Especially Harry, whom she adores.
Harry was a budgie magnet – Cooper and Emmy spent a lot of time on the Harry jungle gym.

Emmy has lots of pinnies. She stuck like glue to Cooper. Cooper was unfazed by the whole experience.

We brought the playgym for the birds, but they mostly hung out on Harry, the tops of the travel cages and the top of the lamp. The lamp had a plexiglass shield (and never got hot), but we draped a towel around it to keep it poop free.

While the birds did okay on their hotel adventure, they are most definitely happy to be back home. So are we!
