Danilo is so smart. Unfortunately, in the past couple of weeks he's begun to behave so badly when he's outside the cage - which was all the time, basically - that I had to confine him to the cage when I'm not in my room to keep an eye on him. He's become quite used to that, but last night I noticed that he knows exactly when I'll be letting him out again. When I enter my room in the evening, to feed everyone and tidy up etc, he doesn't react. Then when I return to go to bed, he knows it's time and he'll get up on his hind legs and beg. 'Please, mom, let me out.' And of course I do. He pounces on his carrot, the dry food etc. Clever Danilo!
