The other day, when Richard was away for the evening, Elmo finally gave in to his insistent daily demands: his need for human contact and affection overrides his “hatred” of me. So after Richard was gone for an hour and a half Elmo started cooing and shrugging his shoulders, bowing his head repeatedly. So I cannot resist – I must go to him and smother him with kisses and strokes. How often do I get invited over for a cuddle from Elmo? :)

So there I am snuggling up to him, my nose in his head feathers, my fingers stroking his ears (he loves that!!) and Elmo is absolutely loving it. Then all of a sudden Georgie is beside us. She’s got a look of concentration and slight hesitation as she inches herself closer and closer to Elmo and my fingers. Then she pecks – grabs a few of Elmo’s head feathers and pulls. She knows he’s there and is taking advantage of his relaxed and vulnerable position to exact revenge on him for all the times he has chased her away. I have to put George on the floor to stop her from attacking both of us in her jealous rage. Yep, Georgie was jealous of me giving Elmo affection. Funny girl.

Every time that day when I gave Elmo any attention Georgie came over to “see” what was going on. She’d climb onto me and peck me – whether to get my attention or to punish me, I don’t know. Maybe both.
