preening is a sign right?

Sponsored Links
morty has started to preen himself while sitting on my shoulder, knee or arm.
he was even nice enough to preen my arm hairs for me as well. i do believe this is a good sign he is getting comfy with me. he is getting along with my father as well.. i think my dad is becoming the favourite. his previous home the male there was
his favourite as well.

Re: preening is a sign right?

It sounds like Monty is feeling right at home now. If he's preening you, that means that he recognizes you as a member of his flock. Nice that he's made friends with your dad too.

Re: preening is a sign right?

yep, preening is one of the greatest signs. Preening themselves on you is a sign of relaxation, preening you is a sign that they see you as a friend and that clearly you need cleaning up!
