Today I sit beside King's cage, my poor little girl with e brightest green a budgie has ever seen. She has not been well recently. We thought she might be having an egg but now we are pretty sure its a tumor. One of her legs had lost its use so i recently hospitalized her cage, given heating pads and reachable replenishments with added vitamins and a padded cage bottom. I know she will not make it today, she fought through yesterday like a champ though. I am so proud of her. Im sorry king. Three years was not a long time to rule the living room. I love you.
Thank you guys. Shes sleeping now, and when she was up i gave her a millet, which she devoured, surprisingly, but then she went right back to heavy breathing a and laying on her side. I don't know how to make her more comfortable with out spooking her.
Oh sweety, I'm so very sorry your little one is not well at all. It is awful when our little darlings are in such a state.
It sounds like you are already doing what you can... being there for her. When you know her time is close, hold her near and dear in your hands to provide her comfort. Speak softly to her and let her know how much you love her.
Please let us know how you and your baby are doing. I really feel for you in this situation. Hang tough. You can handle this.
Oh Sweetheart!! I am so sorry that your little one is not feeling well. Please let us no how she is going.. I no about Tumors... This is a though situation... I do no what you are going through i was in the same situation as you i had to make buster a bed to lie in as he couldn't stand on his perch anymore.. He had an operation to remove the lump but it gave him 6 months to live... I do no what you are going through i had the lump tested and it was Cancer... Please let us no how your little one is going. Spend every moment with her and cherish the time with her... I didn't nearly get another budgie cause of the pain i went through with losing buster.. but i am glad i did get another budgie to love.. You have given king the best life ever what a lucky budgie to have you for a owner..If you need to talk we are here for you... Please let us no how your little one is..

I know exactly how you feel, because I went through something very similar. My budgie was the same age as yours, too. I almost didn't get another pet because of it. I didn't want another bird, I wanted her. I still miss my sweet bird desperately, but it's two and a half years later and I've just gotten two budgies.
Know that you've given King the best life possible, right up to the very end. You've made her so happy and you've always taken care of her. You love her so much and she knows it. You didn't have enough time together, but the time you had was well spent.
