Unhappy RIP Speedy

Today is the worst day of my life so far.

BJ one of our cat's, got Speedy. I feel HORRIBLE. I know what people are going to say "It's your own fault for even having bird's when you already have cat's" but I take such good care of my little baby's. She was everything to me. I am absolutely devastated, I haven't stopped crying since. She was such a character and its not going to be the same without her.

We have always been so careful making sure that all the doors were closed and the cats were outside even before letting any of the birds out to play.

Neither Nathan or I know how it happened. When I got Speedy out this morning I did the same thing I always do, checked the doors and picked up the cats and put them outside, then knowing it was safe I got speedy out of her cage and put her on the play gym, after a while I got Bomba out to play as well. Nathan had just gotten off the phone to the Limo company, I looked up from what I was doing and saw BJ across the room, I realised she had Speedy in her mouth and my heart stopped, I threw everything that I was doing onto the floor and ran across the room, I was hoping against hope that she would still be alive and that I could save her somehow, my little baby, I am supposed to look out for her and I feel like I failed her, which I have, because otherwise she would still be alive.

Right now I don't know how I am going to face the day tomorrow let alone the rest of the week, she was always there waiting for me in the morning, for me to take her cover off and give her a kiss, and the same before I went to work, I would tell her that I was going to work to earn her some money She would be waiting for me to get home and jump straight onto my hand and then onto my shoulder to spend the afternoon with me. Then when I put her back in her cage at bed time I would put her cover on and I would put my hand in her cage she would jump onto my hand for a goodnight kiss. I always looked forward to coming home at the end of the day to see her, one of her favourite thing's was to chew on my fingernails and run up and down my lap top whilst I was on there.

All I know is that at the moment I am just devastated, I have done everything that I possibly can to keep my little babies safe, and at the end of the day it was just not good enough

I am going to miss Speedy like hell, she was my first budgie and such a character, I wish there was something that I could do to bring her back, but there is not. I just hope that I can bond as well with my other two as well as I did with Speedy.

I'm so sorry for Speedy and you. Those naughty cats! Why don't they just chase field mice instead of our beloved birds. I hope that you will be comforted soon. My warm thoughts are with you. RIP Speedy

R.I.P Speedy... Did you ever figure out how the cat got back inside, lest it happens again?

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about Speedy!

No matter how careful we are sometimes something can still go wrong. Its not like you were letting your your cat and bird play together or even be in the same room together. It sounds like you try to be very careful, but some how the cat got in and they are so fast!

Please don't beat yourself up or feel that you failed your little Speedy. It was a terrible accident it was not because you were purposely careless.

I have two outside cats and I don't feel that people who own cats shouldn't have birds...they just shouldn't have them together.

I hope you find peace in this soon!

This message is from my 8 year old daughter: We know how you feel because we lost our 2 budgies this year – our 11 year old male Little Bird, and our female Lucky that we rescued about 4 years ago.

We really loved our birds like you and Speedy!
We miss our birds soooooo much!!!!
oxoxoxoxoxoxox


P.S.Hope you feel better soon!!!!

aww I am sorry , it's not your fault ,
Just remember you have 2 more babies at home, that are no doubt missing her as much as you, To keep thier spirits up you need to do the same (yep even birds can tell when we are not ourselfs)

It'll be hard this I know, but with time and love from the other 2 you'll soon have that speical bond again with your others

again I'm sorry for your loss

R.I.P. Speedy


- could the cat of snuck back in before you got the door shut and hid some where? - I've had dogs do that to me years ago I'd put them out to use the bathroom and before i knew it and had the door shut they were sitting on my couch again!- 4 legged animals are quick and very sneeky - specially cats
