Unhappy Cheeky passed away

I am heartbroken. Had to have our blue elderly lady Cheeky put to sleep today.

She had gout (whitey yellow lumps on feet) which had got worse and on Sunday she lost her ability to perch.

She was also thirsty and doing runny poops. Although eating and still bossing us about to put out the lights at bedtime, when I took her to the specialist avian vet he said she looked poorly and had lost condition. The vet reckoned that her kidneys may have been damaged before we adopted her last October.

I could have put her through blood tests and such but the poor hen looked so tired. I was so worried that without being able to perch and losing mobility she wouldn't be able to feed or drink, may fall and injure herself or simply be in pain.

She was sleeping on a platform but it wasn't the same as her sleeping branch and although she could still climb up ladders she was struggling.

So I made the decision to end her suffering. Feel horribly guilty that I couldn't bear to be with her while the vet injected anesthetic into her liver and that I didn't kiss her goodbye. I think if I had I would have done, I may have not let her be euthanized. It is the first time I have had to make this decision with a pet as they have all died at home.

We only had her six months but I really miss her. Birdie bedtime was a lovely ritual and she is no longer here to tweet at us to put out the light!

But she had a great time with us - going from a pecky hen to a sweet bird who loved being cuddled and scratched. She had plenty of out of cage time and 2 play gyms and loads of attention. She was at least 7 years old we think.

Farewell, my Cheeky bird xx I will always love you xx

I'm so sorry for your loss, I know the pain you're feeling too well. You did all you could to help Cheeky and in the end, since her health was so deteriorated and she had little quality of life, you did the right thing to take her to the vet to put her to sleep. Don't blame yourself, you did all in your power to help her and I'm sure Cheeky appreciates all the love, care and happy moments she had with you.
Rest in peace, Cheeky.

I am so sorry to hear you had to make this terribly hard choice... I hard to make this same choice for my young male last year as he had kidney cancer... I did stay with him and want to tell you it is a very gentle peacefull passing... My vet gave Beau a shot of anesesia that just made him fall asleep immediately.. The needle was so small and tiny he never even felt it.. Once deeply asleep he was gently eased out of this world... He is waiting over on rainbow bridge to greet your Cheeky girl and show her around... RIP little Cheeky.

Condolence Bro... I feel what you feel.. well atleast you showed all of your Love to Cheeky. Its a correct choice to put Cheeky to sleep so that she wont be in pain... Im sure She will understand you... it remembers me Of my Bab... he was with me for almost 1 month, (I took him out of the aviary cause he is sick). and he is the first budgie that hatched in my aviary... and well I had lots of fun with Bab.. but 1 sad day, when I came home from school, I opened the Small cage of Bab to let him out and play with me (which I was doing everyday) and when he went out to go to me, he cant walk properly and I put him in my Palm to pet him then he kick his legs and he was breathing hard then I put my other hand to his body and I saw and felt that he stopped Breathing... and the saddest thing is that my favorite pet Died in my own hands... and He was also the 1st Budgie that I tamed... Well I was just sharing my own story.. xD ... I feel you bro... Once Again, Condolence. dont worry you will see each other again :')

Making the best choice isn't always easy but in the end you did the right thing Cheeky is probably very happy now and is thankful that you put her health above all. It shows that you are a truly selfless person by letting her go.

RIP Cheeky ♥
