At 06:50am this morning i did my daily routine of checking on my babies on the way to the bathroom, first Loki since she is the first thing i see in the morning.. then Freki...
I was in no way prepared for what i was about to see.
I gently lifted the corner of Loki's cover to peek in, without waking her by letting too much light in hehe, which is funny because no matter how quiet i was, she is always ready for me with a cute little warble, even if i can't see her really well sitting on her perch.. she always knew i was coming.
Only this time, i didn't get my daily warble and i didn't see her perfect formed little silhouette on her perch, i couldn't hear her munching on her seeds either.
I gently lifted the cover more and as the light slowly slipped into her cage, there she was on the bottom of the cage, my heart skipped a beat or five as i immediately knew something was seriously wrong at which point i pulled the entire cover off.
I could feel my entire chest clench up, my throat swelled, my eyes filling.
I didn't have to turn the light on, or even touch her to know i was already too late.
Late last night while my hubby was in the bedroom playing his games on the computer, we had Loki out. Well, she had taken up residence on my head, something she hasn't done since Freki came home, she even flew around the room and perched on my shoulder then sung her beautiful song into my ear.
I have no idea what happened, i check on them both 4 or 5 times a day and there was no sign that anything was wrong at all. I am devastated, utterly devastated. My heart is breaking, listening to Freki call out for her like he does every day only for her to call back.. only this time she isn't.
Freki is visibly suffering anxiety right now and nothing i do can calm him.. he knows.. he's not stupid.
She was taken from us far, far too soon. I just don't have any words to describe how i am feeling right now.
My incredible, stunningly beautiful little Loki Bird.. i am so so sorry there wasn't anything i could do for you. I love you lots baby girl, i hope you are at peace.
Fly high, and fly free little one. I hope you knew how much light and joy you brought into my life.
Oh no, I'm so so sorry to hear of Loki's passing... She was so very young and it is indeed quite devastating to wake up to such a terrible sight and so unexpectedly. Your post brought me back to two months ago, the morning I also my found my Tito on the bottom of his cage, lifeless.
I know words can't give you much comfort as the pain, deep anguish and numbness prevail, but you have my deepest sympathies. Loki was such a beloved little girl here on the forums, she will never be forgotten...
Rest in peace, little Loki.
Oh Kat, i am so, so sorry to hear of this. Poor
little Loki Bird. I can imagine the devastation of
having this happen when there was seemingly
nothing wrong. You have my deepest sympathies.
Fly high and free sweet little Loki.
I just logon a minute ago. When I saw your post about Loki in memorial, I was numb for second. I said to myself in silence, this can't be true. Loki dead. I am truly sorry for your loss of Loki, Kat. Words can't hold back the tears. My deepest condolence to you.
Oh Kat I too couldn't believe it when I saw your post, I love reading your posts with all the antics that your two babies got up to I would often reread them and have a laugh out loud, my husband would look over at me and say I know it's your budgie world isn't it!
Please rest easy knowing you gave loki the best loving ,caring home any budgie could ever want, rest in peace little Loki and I hope frekki is ok Sending you lots of hugs from down under ooxx.
Oh my gosh... wow. This is so sad and shocking! I could hardly believe it when I saw this thread. I wish I could say something to make this feel better... sometimes you just can't stop these things... I'm so very sorry Kat.
