Dear Diary,

Another day..another doughnut. Sometimes I feel like it's Groundhog Day
again, and again, and again. Same old birdseed, same old view out the window. Surely I was hatched for more. I'm bored, bored, bored. S.W.M.B.T tries to cheer me up with a long slice of yellow pepper, or half a strawberry, a few Cheerios, or a bit of toast with jelly. But HOLD the peanut butter, really!

In the morning,after she is organized,she opens the cage door and I hop out expecting to do something interesting. I take a walk across the carpet for starters and then climb up the shower curtain. It's a challenge and the view is amazing! I sit there in triumph but eventually the thrill is gone and I call for rescue. I raise one foot which means "Pick me up, NOW."

Then it's back home. Is that all there is?!
