Unhappy Screen Malfunction, Sunny is Gone

It seems I have ****ed up, although I believed I was very cautious, and that Sunny was safe. He has his own room (our bedroom) which is secured from other parts of the house. Since I've had him, he's been a free flyer, he knew the room well and was a strong, healthy man. During one of our last thunderstorms, the screen must have become loose from high winds -- we are three floors up with all our windows exposed to the prevailing winds. In the hour and a half between me getting home and my girlfriend leaving, the screen fell over and the Brave Boy took off through the literal 2 inch opening. I have been playing his favorite music out the open windows, and I hung millet bunches, hoping he is still around to see.

The cat didn't get him and a sickness didn't take him... it was me!

Keep us in your prayers...
Beth

I am so sorry! Don't give up hope. My budgie Rosie escaped out of her cage and outside. She was clipped so it was harder for her. The week she left, we had FEROCIOUS thunderstorms! I couldn't survive in that weather let alone a little fly-less bird!

I had given up ALL hope of finding her alive. But nevertheless, I kept her cage outside at the chance she'd come back. One week later my mum found her running across the grass to her cage! I couldn't believe it. I got all teary. She had lost her tail feathers but apart from that she was fine.

Anyways that's my story. I just told it to you so you don't give up hope. If my flight-less budgie survived a week in thunderstorms, then I'm sure yours will survive too. Try putting Sunn'ys cage outside. Perhaps Sunny will see it and return to it. It worked for me.

Good luck!

What a terribly awful thing to happen. I am so sorry.
Yes, do everything you can. Ask neighbors, put up flyers and posters. And yes, put the cage by the window and call for him.
It wasn't your fault. You would never have thought to check a screen.
Yes, I do pray for his safe return. Maybe a small miracle will happen.
I know how I would feel if that ever happened to one of ours.

Oh no! I'm so sorry!

I would get some fliers out there and let your neighbors know, and if you have a local radio station that has a pet lost and found I would call them, alert any shelters and rescues, and be sure to put Sunny on the lost and found forum we have here run by Buuzbee.

I hope and pray you come home safely Sunny!

Don't give up hope. Put Sunnys cage outside and put some food and water in it. Sunny will hopefully come back home to you.

Seems several of us are losing our fids this way!! I've been putting posters up all over the city, making a pest of myself with the local SPCA and Vet offices, I've even put posters up in some of the small communities around the city. If you can, try doing that, and Hopefully our little ones will come back to us!!

That is really terrible. If it is possible, put the cage right by the window and remove the screen. If you can rig it at all, put something like a long bamboo pole (anchored of course) part way out the window so he could perch on it before entering the window. Keep the lights on and do what you can to keep other critters from entering in the meantime. Try spending more time outside if possible since he may recognize you and come to you. I do hope he returns.

When I found Squeeky I put up notices everywhere I could think of, even grocery store notice boards.

I am so sorry that this happened to you and Sunny It's just so terrible, and I know how you feel. But before naything, remember it is not your fault, and that there is no one to blame.

I was feeling just unbelieveably hopeless about Dallas (I won't get into how she got out) and I did just about everything I could possibly do with my two hands. I felt like she was gone forever and never returning.

I decided to search for her on the morning of the 5th day. I got up right when the sun came out and just walked around. That's when I heard some peeping noises. It wasn't anything liek the wild bird calls, so I knew it had to be her.

She was hiding underneath one of the bushes in my backyard. It was truly a miracle that I found her, but more of a miracle that she lasted 5 days in the wild.

There is hope, and Dallas made me a believer. Please don't lose your hope because once you do, there's little that can be done. I will be praying for you and Sunny, and praying for her safe return.
