The bath experience

We decided to give our little green friend a bath shortly after he arrived.  We heard that in the past he liked to take showers in the bathtub.  I wasn't sure how well that'd work out, so we went with what I knew best:  the kitchen sink.

I was pretty amazed at how well he sat there being washed but even more amazed at how well he could look back up at us with his pathetic eyes begging for it to be over with. So after a few minutes, we gave in and we took him out to dry. 


We now had a sopping wet bird and weren't sure of the best way to dry him off.  So we attempted a towel, but he was pretty quick to slide out of that. 

The next attempt was a bit more successful.   Enter the hair dryer (on low).  He definitely seemed ok with that.  Though maybe it was all the attention.

To ensure future successful bath times, we finished off by giving him a treat at his cage.  Where he continued to preen himself until it was nearly time for bed.  First bath down.
