UPDATES TO THIS PREVIOUS POST:

Hi,

I need alot of help from an experienced group of people who know what to expect with Budgies. My Budgie is about five years old. The previous owner was old and didn't pay much attention to her. She had a partner, but he died from a cat eating him about a year ago (that was not during my ownership). This budgie was given to us about two weeks ago. In her previous home, she had no toys, seemed very depressed, and just sat in its perch all day. When we recieved her two weeks ago, we put toys in her cage and tried to get her used to a hand bieng in her cage. She would scream when we tried to catch her, so we decided to leave her alone until she realized that our hand was good. A week ago, we would put our hand under her belly and say "up, up" and she would go on our finger. Eventually, we were able to let her ago in a room and she would fly around and bump on things. Two days ago, I find her in the bottom of her cage all puffed up. She moves around whenever my hand is about to go into the cage, but it seems as if it were painful. She limps around when she sees me getting close and uses her wings to balance herself when eating in her new hospital cage. My bugdie had begun to use her feet more and be more alert when I placed her in the hospital cage with the heat lamp, but she still seems to be going downhill.

What do you think is wrong? My father has the mentality of a "$25 dollar budgie", and it's not because he doesn't want to pay for a vet, but rather because he just didn't want the bird to begin with . What can I do?!

I've grown attached, they have a magical way of doing that to you.


THE UPDATE:

My budgie died about two days after that. I found her in the hospital cage just lying there. I felt extremely sorry because she sort of died alone. I'm never getting another bird again......

I'm So sorry to hear that your budgie died...R.I.P. little Budgie.

Don't say that! I'm sorry that your budgie died but if your dedicated to birds and love them then you shouldn't just give up! I can imagine how miserable you are, The truth is it wasn't your fault that she died.. Sorry if I'm being critical but in my opinion your father should have done more. If you don't own a vehicle then that makes your father responsible for taking you and your pet to the Vet. You shouldn't feel resposible for what happened. Again, Sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry about the loss of your budgie friend! Just know that it wasn't your love and care that caused her illness and eventual loss. She most likely was not fed properly therefore malnurished. She had no human contact prior to you or toys to play with. Sometimes no matter how hard we try to get our budgies healthy it is often to late to help a very malnurished budgie.

Im sure that that little budgie was so glad to have found you, a loving caring owner.

You did a wonderful thing taking and caring for your little budgie friend! Maybe some time in the future you can adopt another budgie who is younger. I know right now it hurts and for that I am sorry. But you seem to be a wonderful, caring bird person. ~

I am so sorry for your loss. No, it is not your fault.

I once lost a budgie after 15 years. I was so upset I decided not to get another bird as well.
The decision to get a bird again was made for me when the neighbours didn't pick up their bird after a vacation.

Now, looking back, I regret ever having had those "bird-free" years.

So, maybe after a period of mourning, you will change your mind. However, if your dad doesn't want a bird..then I would wait.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Its not your fault you did all you could do. Thank you for giving this little bird care and love and making his last days more joyful. I hope one day you will let another bird into your life when you are ready. I agree though that if your dad is not suportive of having a bird then you should wait.

I am so sorry to hear about your budgie. I know how much you cared. You can love another one day in the future, perhaps you just need some time to grieve. Birds are special little delicate creatures, so sweet. Never say never. I am sure she is at a better place now, at rainbow bridge with all of our other feathered friends that have left us. She is not alone. RIP little sweetie.......xxxxxxxxxxxx
