Default After finding a photo of Buster, I feel like I should make a thread about him

Buster was my little buddy who died back in 2011, just after we brought Tanjiro home. I still have fond memories of cuddling him on my sister's bed with a dish towel around him and the air con blasting while we watched Bromwell High. He was such a funny little chap, he'd run under the table and turn corners and take shortcuts through the kitchen.

I still remember how sweet he was to me even after I stepped on him accidentally. One day I was chasing him and I couldn't find him, I accidentally stepped on him because he had got under my foot. I screamed and couldn't bring myself to look at him for some time. The poor sweet darling never held it against me and still loved me, even preening me and giving me a kiss. I still feel horrible about it all these years later.

Every day he'd ask for me when I was at school and talk to me when I went to cover the cage at night. He was so sweet and affectionate, he'd sit on my shoulder and preen my face and hair. He was my baby right to the end when we had to be euthanized because he was ill. He was riddled with tumors, he lost weight, he was weak and he had a fever. He leaned on the side of the cage to hold himself up. I'm glad he at least stuck around long enough to welcome Tanjiro to the family.

Buster had two female bird companions but both died young so we gave him bird ornaments and he loved those. They were his girlfriends and his girlfriends now sit on his grave out the back. Below is a photo of him and his favourite "bird" Carrot the parrot. I miss him a lot and wonder what he'd have thought of Sonny and if he and Viktor would be friends if he was still around.

We never do forget the special little ones that have already left us, that's a beautiful tribute you made for your Buster.
May he continue to rest in peace.

May Buster's sweet face and happy song be in your heart forever. He was your special friend. I think he would be happy to know that you have Sonny and Viktor to love and care for.

Well i do not have sweet Sonny any longer, he died in August. I think Viktor may remember Buster as he used to come and stay at my place when my sister had to go away (I now take care of him as the stress of being carted back and forth took its toll on him).

Very nice tribute to your buster. I think it is good when we can remember special thing's like this, and realize that we gave a piece of our heart's to it. May the memories of the joy he brought you fill that missing piece of your heart..... always...

Rest in peace, Buster.

I'm crying right now, may these memories of him always stay with you as if they happened only yesterday.

Shennae I am so very sorry for the loss of Buster. Your story made me cry as it reminded me of my buster who had a tumor on his back it was squamous cell cancer he had the operation and it gave him a few more months to live. But I remember all of my busters good memories he had with me he had a wonderful life of 6 and a half years...I no you are sad as you loved Buster very much. He is at peace now free of tumours.
