Default In memory of Rosy

I know this in memory isn't about a budgie but I thought this story was too heartwarming to not share. If I make anyone mad about posting something not exactly about budgies, please tell me. Sorry in advance, if so.
My aunt is visiting and as we were sitting around my birds cage and they were singing along, she told me about her Timneh African Gray. She rescued the poor little birdie from a sad situation where its old owner's father had kept it in a parakeet cage and feed it a cheap seed mix. After settling in, Rosy became healthy and happy, she learned to talk (her first word was "momma"), and she became a central part of the family. Soon Rosy new all the family members names and would even wake the entire house up by imitating the phone. After 5 years of this wonderful relationship with my aunt, Rosy lost balance in her sleep because of an ear infection and died. The most upsetting part was she had just visited the vet.
It has been nearly 20 years since this happened, but my aunt still gets visibly upset when thinking about her poor bird. After what happened today I decided that if I could, I would buy her an African Grey or at least help her cover the costs one day. I just though Rosy's story of neglect and abuse leading to a wonderful but sadly short life of happiness was too touching not too share. Thanks for reading and remember to treasure your birdies!

Thank you for sharing your story with us. It is truly heartbreaking the way some people will treat a living thing, especially such sensitive and intelligent creatures like parrots. It is nice to know that Rosy was able to know love, even if only for a short time.
