Default our sweet Tweeter passed on

I haven't posted here in a while, and the reason is that we lost our beloved little Tweeter in October. We were in Florida on a week's vacation, and had a friend who was stopping by daily to feed him and change his cage. She called us sobbing hysterically and told us that she found him on the bottom of the cage breathing very heavy with his wings outstetched. She pulled him out and held him and then called the vet. He told her to bring him in right away, but he died right after she put him back in the cage. He told her to put him in a freezer bag and place him in the freezer until we got back from Florida.
When we returned, we had the vet autopsy him, as he was only a year old.
The vet determined that he died of a congenital liver disorder, and there was nothing we or our friend could have done. We felt terrible that our friend had to go through that, and of course we miss our baby terribly. He was quite the talker and cuddler, a very unique little guy.
After losing our last two budgies at such young ages, the vet suggested we consider a larger parrot with more longevity. We mulled that over for some time, and are now the proud parents of a little light blue parrotlet named Tiki. We got him as a hand fed baby, and he has now been with us three months. He loves head and back scratches, and he loves to cuddle on our shoulders and in our cupped hands. He is just now starting to talk, and says "Tiki Baby," and the other day shocked us by repeating, "you are just so doggone cute!"
We will never forget our little Tweeter, but we are oh so grateful that we have another little feathered joy to love.
I am now posting every so often on the Parrotlet Forum as "Byrdman."
I wish everyone here much success, happiness, and long lived budgies

You are right, Tiki isn't any bigger than our budgies, in fact with his short tail, he's probably smaller! He does, however, have a big parrot personality.
We actually looked at quakers, a Meyer's, and an African Gray, but thought they were all bigger than we wanted to contend with. We were also looking for a bird that would bond with both of us. Fortunately, that was always the case with our budgies, and now with our little parrotlet. We both spend a lot of time with him, and he really seems to love us both.

Rest in Peace, sweet little Tweeter. He's watching over you now, happy that you found Tiki to share your love and good care. Tweeter will always be with you in your heart.

Yes they have 100% big bird personality!! Lifespan is thought to be around 20 years but I am sure feed and tlc play a big role in that!

My sympathy in your loss of little Tweeter.
Fly high and free sweet boy; rest peacefully now.

Congratulations on your new little parrotlet, Tiki.
He sounds like quite a character and I'm sure will bring you much happiness.

I'm so sorry for your loss. This is not ever an easy part of pet ownership to accept. I think it was wise to have a necropsy done to find out why your little Tweeter passed away. Hopefully it provided you (and your friend) some closure in that there was nothing anyone could have done to prevent the congenital condition.

On a much brighter note though, congratulations on your parrotlet. It's great that you are welcoming a new little feathered friend into your life.

Thank you all for the kind words of support. My wife and I have been budgie lovers and owners for 35 years. We had several live to be 8 and 9 years old, but our last two, Pepper, was only 3 years old, and Tweeter was just 1, when they passed on. We have loved them all, and hope they are all playing together in heaven waiting for us. In the meantime, we have our cherished memories of them, plus the joy of parenting one of their feathered "cousins."

They are together for sure. It is beyond sad when a loved soul dies..... Furry , feathered or human. Grief is the same. My bonded boy budgies John Alfie and fun bobby send you a special gentle kiss. I know the heartache of loss xxxxx so glad you have a new feathered friend . You ll never forget the ones who have flown from this world. It's great you can love and give a good home to another xx

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your Tweeter.
Of course it is wonderful to live with a budgie for many years, but Whenever they pass on, it was Never enough time in our lives; their unique, joyous presence fills our heart to the max.
Congratulations on your new little parrotlet, though! It's great you can share your love with another bird, who needs you as much as you need him.
