When I cry, Mikey, my BCC will stop being silly wherever he is nearby, march over to me, and stick his beak in my face for kisses. He will be calm and loving instead of being his usual trouble-making goofball self.
He's done this repeatedly. He has walked over my husband (of which he was afraid of at the time) to get to me once for a kissy.
The love and compassion he has for me is one of the many reasons why we should be motivated to give them all equal love and compassion.
