Pigging Out with Company

weather: sunny
outside: 18°C
mood: happy
Well, now. =) userinfoSkippy ate like the dickens for about half an hour to 45 minutes.

While I was getting myself a salad, I grabbed a piece of lettuce, spinach and broccoli separately for her. I closed my door and took the top off her cage so that she could stretch. I gave her a bit of lettuce which she wasn't sure about at first, but eventually, she nibbled and ended up really liking it. She ran after me when I took it away for a sec =)

Lettuce is mostly water, so after a while, I switched to a piece of spinach. Skippy really likes leafy green stuff. After a bit of trying to convince her that she couldn't have my food (she can't touch the dressing in my salad), with my left hand holding the spinach for her, I ate my lunch with my right hand. She munched and munched and munched. After the spinach was finished, I picked up a spray millet for her and she went at that for a long while as well.

Little bugger. =\ Yes, I think she's just lonely. We'll save the broccoli for tonight.

I held her and played with her for a bit before I put the top back on her cage. She's back in the corner now, trotting and squeeping like she was before. She wants out, but I have to work. =P Oh, no wait, she's preening herself in the corner... oh crap, she saw me looking at her and wants out again =}

But I'm so happy that she just pigged out. I might do it again at 1700h again before heading home.
