Pistol finally learns.....

Postby gloryaf88 » Fri Jul 20, 2007 4:52 pm

Pistol has finally learned how to fly :multi: It seems like it took forever but he can now go a short distance and he also leaps across things to get where he wants to go.

He will climb up the door frame and launch off on of the hinges on it. He only goes about three feet, but its the best he has ever done. He will also now jump from cage to cage, which is a short distance across the room from each other, and he will leap across areas while chasing Martie, where I use to have to get up and get him.

I am so happy that my little boy can FLY :D

Oh! How exciting! I know exactly how you feel! The first time I saw Nestle fly, I put her on the door frame and made her fly to me three times...until she made that horribly pitiful cricket sound and I felt so guilty I vowed to never do it again. But congratulations!

Oh, that's too cute. He feels like a "big boy" now. Congrats. :twisted:

How old is Pistol? Just want to know. My Piper has never sailed yet, either and she is , I guess, about 10 months old. We watch her so close,tho, it's pitiful. ha

Pistol is over a year old and this is his first true flight. I thought he was going to skip the flying.... :D

This is wonderful! I know you're so proud of him, and tickled that it finally did happen. I've had my doubts about Piper flying, too, but maybe when she's ready she'll take off. I know it will thrill my husband and me. I take her to a little bathroom we have and her play things are there (and her freedom). We never let her out in the room we have her pen in. There are big bookshelves, a fireplace and other things there she could get in or behind. I know you are celebrating !!

Okay, Helen here is how last night went around here. I have a blanket hanging on my wall beside my bed for them to climb on and play. Well, there is a picture hanging above my bed and last night Pistol discovers he can fly from the blanket to the pictures. Everytime I would doze of, I would hear that Pic swing and bump the wall. I'd cut the light on, and there would be Pistol swinging on the pic. I guess I'm gonnas have to move it, if I don't it will probably hit me in the head later this week :roll:

I think that's a great idea too. Maybe get one of those cool beach towels with like a picture on it and hang it up therre to take the place of the picture. That way they'll get their climb and you stay safe. Afterall I don't want anything happening to you.
