Default Skittle passed 3 months ago- but never forgotten!

I wanted to share some lovely photos of my bird, Skittle, who passed away in my hands a few months ago almost 5 yrs old from respiratory infection. I sorely miss him, but you can all appreciate how much he was loved from these photos- as i'm sure all your own birds are .

1. The moment we got him back from the pet store September 2009


2. Baby Skittles!


3. Tech savvy bird!





4. It's hard work being a bird!





5. I just need to CHECK there's no dinner left you can share with me!!



6. His absolute favourite swing! So good, he found it outside the cage when I moved it, and we had one more spare just in case it ever broke!



7. Bath time!



8. Poor Skittle in his last few weeks- snuggling up to me like a scarf. Awww.




These little birds have such an impact on us!! :-)

What a beautiful tribute to your precious boy's memory, it's very clear that he was much loved, and to see the close bond you had with Skittle.
No matter how much time passes by, we will always hold dear to our hearts all good moments we had with them.
I lost my Tito for over 1 and half year now and his memory is always close to my heart.

Skittle was a beautiful boy and very fortunate to have had you as his adopted Momma.
Your tribute to Skittle is lovely. I know you will cherish your memories of your time together always.

Awww, I'm so sorry for your loss, Jo. He was definitely a handsome little man. And by the looks of it, was very attached to you and your family. He will surely be missed as much as he was loved. These little guys really do become more like our own children, don't they?

Friends could never believe he was a bird! And people meeting Skittles never knew what we know about budgies on the forum, how entertaining and clever they are! I tried my best to expose him to lots of things young, and let him into every aspect of our lives. For example, he'd have a nap with us on our pillow in bed, I got him a shower suction perch so he could shower with us, he would be let out at different people's houses and he didn't care where he was, he would be adventurous! It's a bit selfish, but all the same, I wanted my little guy to live forever
