Blue Rain is on a distinguished road
Default Rainbow - RIP

After long hours devoted to rummaging through basement boxes, I finally found the photos of my parakeet Rainbow that I'd been looking for.

They'd gotten lost in numerous moves, but I found them hiding under a guest room bed. These are from the day before we put Rainbow down, due to mysterious health problems. He'd been sick for a long time, and the vets had no clue what it was. He'd break his tailfeathers, and we'd find blood all over the cage in the mornings. Then he lost use of his right foot, for reasons also unknown.

We tried to make him comfortable, but eventually my parents sat me down and said that it was unfair for him to live this way, and so we let him rest.

I started tearing up when I started to flip through them. I'd like to caution people before looking, because to me, they are somewhat graphic.

Beloved Rainbow:


They go from there.

So sorry, my condolences. It would have been a very tough decision.

Thank you.

Man, I miss that bird. He was so attached to me, I could kiss him right on the beak and he'd puff his head feathers up and come back for more
