Default R.I.P. lil' Benson

Well... after 3 weeks of suffering with a respiritory infection & struggling to give my lil' bird the meds..he sadly passed away yesterday morning.
My son went down stairs first thing & ran upstairs carrying him in his cupped hands saying he'd found him flapping around on the bottom of the cage. I took him from my son and one of his legs were tucked right back & he didn't seem to be able or wanting to move it. He was a bit snuffly and kept flapping his wings every couple of minutes. We tried to keep him calm and kept talking calmly to him & stroking him. We took it in turns to hold him while we both got sorted to get my son to skool. I got a small warm sheet & kinda made it into a nest to put him in. He still kept flapping now & again. I put him on the sofa facing the back cushions so that he wouldn't flap off onto the floor, cos every time he flapped he moved forward a little, then i took my son to skool. To my dismay when i got back i found him dead on the carpet by the sofa
I am soooo gutted & cried most of yesterday. I cant believe he died in that short time that i was out the house & he was alone
He was my special mate & such a great character I've had 8 wonderful years with him & he's kept me company when i've been alone & my son's been away every weekend. The house is so silent today I'm gonna miss & am missing him sooo much already. R.I.P my gorgeous feathered little friend Gone but will never be forgotten
My greatest sympathies to anyone else on here that has lost thier little feathered friends

I'm so sorry to hear this... I know how devastating it is to lose such a special little fellow. Please accept my condolences.
Even though the pain from not having your Benson is hard to bare, time will heal the pain left in your heart that soon will be filled with all the wonderful memories of the good times you had with him.

Rest in peace, sweet Benson. You were much loved and will be missed.

I did comment on your other thread but I'll do it again here. I really am so sorry for your loss 8 years is good! It may not be the full life span but considering a lot of people see budgies as throwaway pets and care very little for them, allow them to live off seed and water and don't give them the vet care they deserve, you've done a brilliant job being his parront. You tried to save him, that's for sure! Rest in peace little one x

Thankyou so much for your support its greatly appreciated
People don't realise how much these little pets mean to us & don't understand how upsetting it is to lose your little friends
It really has devasted me much more than i thought it would. He brought me so much joy & happiness with his little antics & big personality It's just upsetting to think i will never see or hear him again
The memories are painful right now but i know that in time i will look back & smile without the tears...he'll always be in my heart
Thanks again for your kind words

OH I am truly so sorry to read of this, you were so caring and obviously very loving towards your little man. Yes what you say is true one day soon you will be able to think of him with fun and smiles in your heart. The tears are just as important though so don't try to stop them they are healing and a show of the love you and he shared fly high and free little one forever in your heart and memories are golden.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Remember all of the good times and treasure your loving memories of your beautiful Budgie...

Somwhere over the rainbow
They say that dreams come true
Some day over the rainbow
I'll sit awhile with you

Gonna wrap my arms around you
And whisper in your ear
Gonna tell you all the love I feel
How my heart holds you so dear

Gonna lovingly gaze at you
Let my heart skip as you smile
Than tenderly I'll kiss you
Hold you close for just awhile

Yes, somwhere over the rainbow
They say that dreams come true
But I knew my dream came true
That day I met you

So sorry to hear about Benson's passing, Taz, and he's such a handsome bird

Can you share some photos in memory of him for us all?
