Default Yuki and Midori

They were the sweetest little girls ever, I fell in love with their personalities right away and was so happy when they took to their training so quickly. Yuki was learning to give kisses, and Midori was hopping on my hand every chance she got.

Sadly they died today, I still haven't figured out why but I have a hunch.
I went out of town for three days and left the birds in care of my family, seems they didn't care for them at all. I came home to see a dirty cage, rancid water, an empty food dish and two missing birds. This was after I was assured I didn't need to have my friend come and check on them while I was gone. I don't even know what to say anymore. I thought these most basic things were common knowledge and I shouldn't have had to leave instructions for something so simple.

I haven't buried them yet, but I did at least get them out of the trash where they were tossed. I'm just really really irritated and upset by this. I thought they were in good hands while I was away.

This is really making me rethink birds. it feels like as soon as I become attached, something happens to them. I really hope Toki and Souka are going to be ok.

Oh my goodness this is such terrible news! I am so sorry! They were such beautiful sweet little girls. I can't imagine what you are feeling. I don't know what to say except I am very sorry for your loss.

I am sorry to hear about the death of Yuki and Midori. You don't have to depend on anyone for food and water for 3 days not at home. It is always wise to depend on yourselves and not anyone for that matter.

Millet sprays are good holiday food for 3-4 days not at home. Tie a spray with a short cotton twine at the twig and hang 6 to 8 sprays at strategic locations inside the cage. Put 5 to 6 seed bowls of seed mix at strategic locations inside the cage. Put 3 to 4 water tubes at strategic locations inside the cage. These arrangements would probably save the lives of innocent budgies.

RIP Yuki and Midori.

I am at a loss for words... what a terrible thing to come home to and find out your little ones are no longer there. I'm so sorry for this turn of events.
Please accept my condolences.
Rest in peace, Yuki and Midori.

Thanks for the kind words and advice everyone.

It looks like Toki and Souka are going to be ok, they've been eating like mad and drinking quite a bit as well. I do hear them flock calling, and it's making me feel sad. I wish they could have their partners back.

I'm so sorry for your loss, this is shocking treatment of your birds by whomever you left in charge of their care, you must be so devastated

RIP sweet Yuki and Midori, fly high little ones, together forever.

Oh my goodness I am so sorry. This is just terrible and it has left me almost speechless. I can't believe they wouldn't have been properly cared for. Wow. Poor babies. What was their excuse? Oh my. Sweety, I am so very sorry for your losses of Yuki and Midori.

I am so glad you got them from the trash and are going to give them a proper burial. As we know, these are not simply disposable pets.

Please accept my sincerest condolences. We are here if you need some support, okay?

Fly high and free Yuki's and Midori. Sweet dreams.

Oh No - I am shocked and horrified at this sad story - what a tragedy. I really don't know what to say, except God have mercy on those who hold our most precious, dear ones in such low esteem.
May those 2 sweet birdies rest in peace now, free forever from the cruelty of ignorant and careless human beings.

I hate it when you trust someone with something or somebody you love and they don't treat them right.

Fly high little ones!

What I do when I go on 2-3 day trips is leave two of everything. 2 food bowls, 2 water bowls, and 2 large millet sprays so they don't starve. You can always give 3 of everything, etc. if your gonna be away for longer. But if you will be gone for over a week, then I suggest hiring a pet sitter or someone you know is responsible.

That's just tragic and so sad that your family did
this! I can't begin to imagine how you feel about
that. I am so so sorry that you lost two of your
babies. Fly high and free little ones, over the
Rainbow Bridge.
