Poor little Beaker got tased, accidentally, of course. It's been very
dry here, and John didn't realize he'd built up some static
electricity. He brought Beaker her food, set it down on her patio, and
then reached out to bring her down from the top of the outside of her
cage, and she started to step up onto his finger and ZAP!
The poor little thing squawked and flew around and hopped around for a
minute or so, actually shaking her foot out like you might see in a
comic. And now she won't let him touch her. No surprise there.
He felt so terrible about it. It will be interesting to see how long
she stays mad at him. : )
