This is what happened this morning as I came out of the mudroom/bathroom area that we are using to quarantine the new kitty. River is my African grey parrot, and he has the intelligence of about a 6 year old. He speaks in complete sentences, and completely understands what he is saying. He amazes me daily, and I adore him.
River: What's in there?
Me: A kitty. Do you know what a kitty is?
Me: It's like a dog. Like Sunshine and Harvey but smaller.
River: Oh. Cool!
