Default Jemima

Hmmm, I never really posted a thread for my little sweetie Jemima on this forum as I wasn't a frequent visitor of it at the time, although I posted about her on budgerigars.co.uk. I guess since im on here alot now I ought to tell you guys what a wonderful little bird she was.

After begging my parents for 5/6 years for my own budgie, my lovely boyfriend bought me Jemima for my 18th birthday present. He rescued her from a little petshop down in the road, where the birds are kept upstairs in a draughty room; where the the floorboards are so wonky that walking across the floor causes all the cages to wobble around and scare the birds. Its not exactly the worst pet shop in the world but it could obviously be better...and cleaner.

The pet shop owners told Mattie that Jemima was a ''baby male budgie'', after a little research however I soon realised that ''Sprocket'' was infact a female and renamed her Jemima. I have absolutely no idea how old she was...(although she evidently wasnt a baby) where she came from.. or how long she spent in that petshop.

However I couldn't of asked for a more loving and sweet tempered bird. She stepped up on my finger within a day and enjoyed sitting on the shelf above the computer watching me whilst playing with her toys. Another two weeks on I decided she might be lonely and bought her a companion from a breeder; Sid.

They got on like a house on fire, as you can tell from this photo which was taken only two hours after they met!
(Jemima on the left, Sid on the right)


They were completely in love for a further 4 months, and whatever Jemimas life was before she was thoroughly enjoying her life with Sid. However I often noticed that she had trouble flying, she would get extremely tired and often not even make it to her destination and have to take a quick landing somewhere else, which made her extremely upset and stressed.

Unfortunately on the 14th of June she became extremely ill, we rushed her to the vets who informed us she must of had a bad stroke and there was little he could do. She deteriated rapidly and survived only a few more minutes after we got home, in time to see her beloved Sid again...she died in my hands a few seconds later.

I still miss her daily, and im sure Sid does too. But I am glad to have given her such a happy end to her short little life. Heres a few more pics of her and Sid.






And one of me and her. Rest in peace, my sweetie.

A wonderful tribute for a wonderful budgie. It is never too late to remember our lost sweethearts. What a precious little budgie she was. Jemima was a beautiful budgie and I am so sorry to hear about your loss. May she fly high...

I am so sorry about Jemima, she seems a very special budgie.. And she seemed so in love with Sid.. I am really sorry..
Maybe you should take another female for Sid? Those kind of birds are very attached with their wives/husbands.
