I forgot this forum for a while, but when Bloo died, I decided to make a memorial thread. But I'm kinda late. VERY late.
Bloo died on September 8, 2013... I've still been heartbroken, unable to let go of it.
Well, one night, Bloo was out of his cage, following my dad. He flew better than when I first got him, and he was now tamed. I was calmly playing Into the Vale, unaware of the disaster about to happen. I glanced at Bloo and smiled. Cute little budgie. Suddenly, Bloo was right under my dad's slippers- about to be crushed. My mom yelled out a warning- but it was too late- my dad stepped on Bloo, and broke Bloo's neck. "BLOO!" I screamed as the bird twitched in pain. I quickly took Bloo upstairs, and that's when he stopped twitching. I continued, trying to reach the vet upstairs. Finally, when I got there, the vet listened for his heartbeat. Please please PLEASE let him be okay... I begged in thought. After that, the vet told me he was dead. I leapt onto the couch and hugged a pillow. I couldn't believe this day was so soon.
Oh, no... I'm so sorry to hear this. Unfortunately, very tragic accidents do happen and there is little we can do to stop them from occurring.
I can imagine what you feel... and you have my deepest sympathies. I know the pain and heartbreak is hard to bare especially under the circumstances, but try to take comfort in the fact that you gave Bloo a happy life while under your care and know and that he will always live in your heart through the memories of all the good times spent together.
Rest in peace, little Bloo. You were much loved and will be missed.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
I am so very sorry to hear this..Unfortunately, tragic accidents do happen.. I have to be careful when my budgie is on the floor running around with other people in the house to i have to keep an eye on him all the time even eyes in the back of my head when it comes to a budgie... I no it is hard to let go when i lost my budgie from cancer i didn't want to let go either i wanted him back.. Maybe when you are feeling better and you might like to try again with another little friend to love there are a lot of little budgies wanting a loving home and to be cared for my mum said to get another one as it would heal the broken heart i had and so i got another budgie to love after a month and i am glad i did i am happy again. Maybe another budgie will help you heal to in time..
Fly high in the sky little bloo
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.
They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.
Aww - I can't tell you how devastated I feel at the news of this terrible accident - my heart goes out to you, dear girl.
I hope and pray you can forgive your Dad - You know he would Never have meant to do this, and I'm sure he feels so very sorry. It's a fact that budgies are so tiny and fast that they are incredibly vulnerable to being accidentally hurt by their humans - there are too many similar stories here on Talk Budgies...
You will only be able to heal and move on with forgiveness in your heart - otherwise, blame and bitterness can keep you in pain for a long long time- and you already have Enough pain just Missing your little baby.
Just remember that Bloo is no longer in pain and danger, and he knows just how much you loved him.
Rest in peace, little Bloo
Unending Thanks, Ms FaeryBee, for the Absolute Perfect Picture!
Mmh... Though it's all over, I can't even bear to say his name. I got another budgie, Ringtail, my dad "accidentally" released him. After Ringtail, I got Soren. Soren's living happily with me now. His feathers are white, but turning blue.
And I held a funeral and buried Bloo the day after. Everyone thought I was insane, except for my 2 friends who were the vet's kids- Aria and Andia. (Note: Aria's a boy, Andia's a girl) and then some time near the end of September, someone stole Bloo's body. I feel like I need to attack them...
Anyway, I still can't stop writing "RIP Bloo" on my phone sticky notes. again- I'm unable to let go of this... X_X
Oh I'm so sorry about Bloo. How awful. This was a terrible terrible accident. It is no wonder you are having trouble letting go of this; it's very traumatic when our we lose our darling pets, and this is compounded when it happens accidentally.
