Default My pretty little bird.

Friday evening, I walked into my room to find my friend for nearly 10 years, Alexander, laying on his cage floor, dead. I don't know if he was sick and died of something, or his little heart just stopped. That's probably the worst thing - not knowing. He was losing weight before he died, but I had recently gotten a new bird from a friend of mine, and I thought the weight loss was due to the stress of a new bird. I'm stupid, and should have just brought the little guy to the vet. I regret it greatly, now. This is so hard for me, I've never lost something so important. Never again will I watch him hang upside down on a perch, or fly to me and sit on my head, or come out of his cage to nibble on my lips and hair.

I miss you Alex, and I love you.

I am so very sorry about your loss of Alex. Don't be too hard on yourself- if you had taken him to the vet, it might have been actually worse for Alex. He lived a great, long life of 10 years with you, and loved you very much. He passed on peacefully, and with the great memories that you left with him.

Fly free little birdy- we will miss you.

RIP Alex. Jeez it must be hard losing a pet which you've had for almost ten years. I recently lost my friend Snowpea.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Alexander.

Please try not to play the "if only I had done this....or if only I had done that" game. All it does is prolong the guilty feelings you have which is not going to help you cope with your loss. You obviously loved Alexander a great deal, which I can tell from your post.

Hang in there. You've got a lot of people here to lean on for support. Time will help ease the pain you are feeling.

Rest in peace Alexander. My you fly high, fly free, fly forever.
