It is under terrible circumstances to report that today Birdie passed away. I have been feeling distraught all day because of this. She was a beautiful and ever friendly little girl. I know I am not supposed to have favorites but she was my absolute favorite. I looked forward to spending time with her, she was the most loving and peaceful soul. She was the very best with my daughter and enjoyed eating millet from our hands.
You were so young, I can not believe that a small amount of hair could have done this to you... I feel guilty and distraught over this. To come home and see you like that... It's a memory that is forever burned into my mind.
I am ever so grateful that I had you for the time that I did. I wish we would have had many more years together... You were very much loved from the first time I saw you. I'm so so sorry Birdie. I wish I would have been here to save you. No matter how many times I scream why, you're not going to come back... I am so sorry Birdie. You were such a beautiful soul, inside and out. :'(
Rest in Peace Birdie... You weren't here long but you have had an everlasting impact on my life. Good Bye my sweet beautiful intelligent girl...
I'm very sorry to hear of the tragic loss of your Birdie... I know how hard it is to say goodbye to such a beloved little friend. You have my deepest sympathies.
And it's okay to have favourites in a flock, I know I do. Of course they are all equally loved but there is always one or two that shine through and make a special connection to us.
Even though the pain is too fresh, I hope soon your heart will heal and be filled by the wonderful memories of the times spent with your Birdie.
She will always live on in your heart.
Rest in peace, little Birdie. You were much loved and will be missed.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
Thank you everyone... This completely broke my heart. I was able to find her a very nice box and will be making her a cross in the morning.... I still can't believe it... I don't even know where the hair came from.... I wish it never happened. I know she was young and i didn't have her long at all but like aluz said, we clicked and i loved her. She was finally letting me scratch her head... My heart us absolutely broken...
It's amazing how great impact these small creatures can have on our life. Rest In Peace Birdie....you're in a safe place now and in peace.
BTW, I didn't get it about the hair....how did she die? did she chew the hair or what? I'd like to know about it.
