This morning I uncovered the budgie's cage to find my Bella had passed away during the night.
She was not well in the past couple of months. We had been treating her for a case of Gastric Yeast, and she made really good progress and was almost back to normal, but took a turn for the worse in the past couple of days brought on by a moult. And unfortunately didn't make it before I could take her back to the vet again.
She was a cranky girl, who ruled the roost with an iron fist and loved causing trouble. She loved her food and looked forward to weekends because that meant it was time for egg food. She was a terror, but I loved her all the same. She will be sorely missed.
