This morning i woke up and butch had died during the night. he has been sick for about a month not and really improved at one point, but saturday he stopped eating and got worse. i tried feeding him, but he was too far gone.
i adopted butch December 27, 2011 with Lenny. it was hard to train him and after lenny died, butch practically un-trained himself. then Leon came along. after quarantine and me taking leon with a favorite toy, i took butch out and from then on, butch became tame. he met all of the new flock members as they learned to come out. he had been bullied, made good friends, and bullied others who stole his friends. even this last month, others would visit him in the hospital cage/ tank. baby bird was brave enough to land on my bed to see him. leon would visit and try and eat all of his snacks (typical best friend).
its been a long [almost] 3 years and i am so glad i brought him home. he gave such color and life in the flock.

Rest in Peace, sweet handsome Butch. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. They leave us much too soon. I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs to you and all of Butch's friends. He was so loved and will be missed.
I'm so sorry for your boy's passing... You did all you could for him and he had a very happy life with you. Now he rests with his friend Lenny and all our beloved little friends in rainbow bridge. You have my deepest sympathies.
Cherish the memories of all the good times you had with Butch, he will forever live on in your heart.
