Default Missing the girls!

Although they did not pass away, they have been gone a couple of days now and I am missing them a lot!

It is like a death! I no longer hear their chirps, see them flying around the room, landing on the curtain rod or climbing up the side of the couch. I don't see them bickering inside or outside the cage nor see them fighting in mid-air. I no longer talk to them at all times of the day, nor sing to them nor tell them I love them and they are good girls. I no longer wash their lettuce, carrot tops, broccoli, or spinach leaves and place on top of their cage for them to enjoy. I no longer entice them to come to me with millet and simply give up and just give them a whole piece anyway!

I no longer vacuum up many times a day their many, many little feathers and droppings, and seeds and just total mess that they made. I no longer give them bath water and watch them excitedly run to get shredded paper to throw in the bowl and watch it sink to the bottom and run and do it again and again.

I can no longer watch them do somersaults and the other funny antics they loved to do.

I will not see them eat pellets when the nice lady I gave them to tries to get them to eat it. I won't hear their first words...I believe that at least Sprite will talk someday soon if she keeps talking to the girls.

I will no longer collect their beautiful feathers when they fall out.

I never did get to kiss their bellies (although my roommate was able to hold and kiss Sierra) all I can kiss now are the feathers I did collect. I can still smell them when I hold a feather near my face.

I can't touch their beaks or their feet. I can't tell them they are silly girls, or to be nice anymore.

I won't be able to take 1000's more pictures or videos and share with my friends and family...they tease me about my "home movies".

Seems I will have to find something else to talk about now!

I am missing them so much right now, but I know it will get better with time.

I know they will be happy soon enough themselves. Maria, the lady I gave them to was so happy to receive them. I gave her everything I had for them so she wouldn't need to buy anything for them and they would be in and have all their familiar things around. I even bought more food for them and gave her a baggie of veggies for them so she would be set for a while.

My heart aches for them but really, that is selfish of me.

We just got notice that there is going to be major construction done on our townhouse and all the dust and noise and having to move them would not be good for them so now was a perfect time to find someone to care for them and love them! Plus with all the time I have spent away from them wasn't good for them and I know it!

I know they loved me and I know also that they know I love them! They will always be in my heart and they will always be my special girls forever!

For those of you who have read this long sad post, thank you! I know you understand!

I am sitting here with tears running down my face as I type this but knowing this was the best thing for them.

I love you Sprite and Sierra, you are good girls. Be good for Maria and she will love you for always too!

Lisa

You will always have their memories, and nothing not even time itself can take that away from you.

Its always sad when they have to go, whether that is through death or rehoming.

I still miss my Loki bird and Queen Talos, tho it wasn't to rehoming i lost them to

I always think of them often and i am grateful for each and every memory of them i have of them.

I'm sorry Lisa I cannot imagine having to give up my budgies, the silence must be awful

Be happy that you had them to love for a short while, and that they've now gone to their forever home. When the time is right maybe you can have some more budgies

So glad that you found someone who really wants them. That has to make you feel better about the whole situation. You take care of the things you have to, and visit us and our bird's here for your fixes, and like Sarah said, maybe get more when the time is right. I rehomed a female yellow lab a couple years ago due to circumstances like yours and work schedule. It tore my guts out, but like you I knew it was the right thing to do, found someone I knew would treat her like I did or even better, and let her go. It took time, but it does get better with time, and now I feel no sadness when I think of her or look at pics of her....just remember the joy......you'll get there...

I am so sorry you feel like this. And I can only say I do understand
I had to give up my four budgies earlier this year, and it was very sad.
Time heals though, it really does.
Knowing that the girls will have a happy life at Maria's should be your consolation. My hugs to you.

Aww - so sorry you had to give up your sweet budgies - glad they went to a good home, though - Time Will help heal your sorrow, and you will always have your good memories, even though they are painful right now...Maybe one day you can care for budgies in your life again - I certainly hope so, as you are a very caring and loving person
