Unhappy Buried Seuss today

Just over a week ago I woke Seuss up and set his cage where I always do. I went back to bed and was watching him from a distance. Then, about five minutes later, he started acting very strangely. He was jerking and moving extremely fast ... it was like he was fighting something that wasn't there. There were no mirrors or anything nearby (he was still on his roosting perch at the top of the cage).

But then he stopped and seemed okay. Over the week before he was sneezing a bit more than usual. But other than that, he seemed okay. He wasn't gaining any weight but I had pretty much figured I'd been sold an English/American cross, not a full English budgie, and that he'd pretty much reached his adult weight. He wasn't fluffed up or anything like that. I was waiting to get paid for a big job before taking him for his first check up.

Then I went out to work for the afternoon and when I came back he was at the bottom of the cage ...

I really miss him. And I have felt guilty because maybe if I'd taken him to the vet sooner they might have figured out that there was something wrong. But he really seemed okay.

I noticed you had not been here for some time. There was a reason behind it. What a devastating news to hear from you. Seuss was a beautiful boy to die at a young age. I am sorry about his passing away.

RIP Seuss. Find your freedom in Budgie Heaven.

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear about Seuss. It's never easy to part with one so young. You have my deepest sympathies.
Rest in peace beautiful boy, you will be missed.

Rest in Peace, sweet Seuss. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. You left us much too soon. I am so sorry for your loss.

Oh my goodness. I am so sorry. That is a terrible shock.
I wonder if he had an underlying medical issue.
You obviously loved him very much. Take care of yourself.
Fly high and free little Seuss.

Thanks everyone. I was reading about Tucker and wonder if Seuss was having seizures. It's going to be a while before I get another budgie. But he was a lovely companion; he was very tame and we spent a lot of time playing. Funny how amused he could be by a ball with a bell in the middle.

Thanks for your support.
