Has Louis got the 'hump' with me?

Recommended Posts

Went away saturday for one night and left woofers, cats and Louis the OW in the safe hands of our 'babysitter'. Well since we got back, he seems a tad grumpy! well, I say a tad, actually it's quite a lot! He is not taking treats through the cage bars (he normally does) and squarks at me when my hands are in the cage (to put in food or clean). It seems like we have taken several steps backwards. Only had Louis a few weeks and has always been nervous and does not step up onto our hands, but seems really grumpy this week.

 

Any advice please???

Certainly birds can seem to be different if their pet humans go absent for a while.

 

Many take little notice but some become over clingy or (as you've found out) seem to be offish.

 

Stick to everything you would normally do but try to move a little slower and use more soft words (be extra reassuring) .... just until normality returns and you are 'forgiven'
