Hi Both,

Just like to say many thanks for looking after Nobby so well, I don't think he wanted to leave!!
He is settled back home, I am trying to get him to step up at all opportunities, hopefully he will get his confidence back.
Thanks again,

Chiku our 9 year old African Grey has just returned from her second stay at 'Hotel Polly'. The first stay was certainly successful otherwise we would not have booked her in again but we noticed she was a little subdued on her return, probably a little confused as to her changing environments. However this time she had obviously slipped straight into her new routine and it was as if she had come back from her holidays. She was in fantastic spirits, chirpy and looking in the pink.

Anguel & Wayne take such care to ensure their guests are happy and settled. We were confident that they really did take on board all Chiku's quirks,fads and routines. Not only are we happy to send her again I think she will see it as her 'holiday retreat' and not even glance back as we leave. As a parrot who is constantly looking after her best interests she quickly adopts Anguel as her new love ..... fickle lady!My thanks go to both guys for providing such a fantastic place to leave Chiku, it has taken 9 years to solve the problem of a happy holiday for us and our treasured parrot.

Nikki & Simon Varnals.
