Default Goodbye little Coco-keet

Our first budgie somehow found us. I went out to feed chickens, and there she was sitting on the feeder! Our closest neighbor is a quarter mile away, and they knew nothing about a lost parakeet. That little bird would have had to cross acres of open desert to get in our backyard; its a complete mystery to us how she got here. But we took her in, bought her a cage and food, started learning about how to care for budgies (your site came up in an internet search), and wanted to give her a home. We named her Coco; nick-named Coco-keet! At first she ate good, but was sleeping most of the time in the bottom of her cage. The last day we had her she seemed better, wanting to be out of her cage and just be with us. But about five minutes after returning her to her cage, my wife noticed she was on her back and couldn't get up. She was still breathing when I placed her in my hand, but after ten minutes or so she stopped. We don't know exactly what happened. We only had her for five days (buried her in a shoebox yesterday), but miss her greatly. Until now, we had never considered a budgie as a pet, but once the mourning period is over, we'll bring another little bird into our home. Sorry for the long post, but I needed to share this story with those who I knew would understand. Thank you.

What a miracle that coco found such a great family to care for him in his last days. God bless you for taking the little one in and loving him. Budgies find a way into your heart. You will be great bird parents and look forward to hearing from you about the new budgie and seeing pics when you are ready. XOXO

I'm so sorry to hear this... Even though the time you had Coco-keet was very short, at least she was loved, cared for, and had a roof over her. I'm glad you took her in and it's clear the impact she had in your life.
Budgies make great pets and do have the ability to brighten our darkest days so much and I do hope once you feel better, you will get another feathery friend.

Rest in peace, beautiful Coco-keet. You will be missed.

I am glad that she could be with you and not die alone. I am also glad she showed you what a joy little budgies can be. She is sick no more, and is in a place of unspeakable budgie joy. Look forward to seeing your future budgie...

I am so sorry for your loss .
She was fortunate to have found you to spend her last days with.
My first budgie Alinga died just a month after I got her. I thought that was a short time.
It surprised me at how much you can fall in love with a budgie in such a short time.

Fly free Coco-keet

Rest in Peace, sweet beautiful Coco-keet. You gave Coco love and took care of her during her last few days. She gave you the joy of having a little budgie to love. That is her legacy. Her cute face and happy song will be with you forever.
