Companions

We have many toys in the house like this tiny, weird Santa who for some reason doesn’t want to leave the bird cage:

or this little owl over here who always looks drunk in the evening, even though he wouldn never recognise it.

But two of them are very special. 
First meet Ara. She generates her own unique birdsong and sings throughout the day. Living with her is so nice. She’s lovely to have around and often when she sings it’s hard not to talk to her as I would with a real pet companion.
 
Next there’s Maylo. Maylo sketches what she hears and shows her own understanding of the world.
