Default My Losses

I had 22 budgies in my aviary - although they arent "tame" they arent scared of me either and will sit on my shoulder etc. My neighbour (who is a very nice man) decided one day while i was out to give them some herbs from his garden, not quite sure how he got passed the dog - i am guessing because she knows him. anyway after he went into the aviary and put the herbs in, he didnt close the door properly, and i came home to find the aviary door swinging open. That day i lost 5 of my gang - it was a couple of weeks ago now and i have never found them again. So guys from me to you all - i love you so much, i miss you more than words can say. I wish i knew you were safe somewhere, but i dont think thats possible.
To Mohan:

Puff (my favourite girl and my daughters best friend):


Casper:

Thank you for sharing your lives with me, to Puff and Mohan for teaching me the joys of watching your babies come from eggs to the beautiful birds they are now, to stud and muffy for frustrating me to no end that you guys loved each other but wouldnt breed, to casper my own friendly ghost, the most gentle, sweet bird ever. Thank you for letting me take care of you for the time you were with me, thank you for befriending me and trusting me to take care of you. I miss you all very much - fly free my babies

Gosh, so sorry that you lost some of your fids. They were very pretty. Maybe someone found them and they are safe again.

That would be hard to lose those beautiful birds. I hope they are in a safe place.

That is so sad, I guess it is a wake up call to all who have outdoor aviaries to lock them. Wild animals can be clever enough to open them as well.
I do hope that at least some of them survived.

thank you everyone - i miss my buddies a lot. I have now put a padlock on the aviary. I had never thought about other animals being able to open it to hurt them and i honestly never believed anyone could get past Cleo (our german shepherd). she has a heart of gold, but a pretty scary bark on her! I guess i learnt my lesson the hard way, so really i should be angry at myself, not the neighbour.
thanks for the nice thoughts everyone and i truly do hope they stayed together and looked out for each other and found somewhere safe.
