Default The Most Horrible Day Ever..

I have had the most horrible day. It's like all my animals are dying today. I had a betta fish die on me, and my precious Petey got killed as well. It wasn't anything to do with his health. My boyfriend and I stay outside away from his parents and stuff so we can have our privacy and they can have theirs. We have all of our animals in here with us, including Petey. Well, the building is actually not all the way finished from where whoever built the building didn't build it right so our ceiling isn't on good. My boyfriend's parents cat decides to sneak in through the roof early this morning. I woke up at 5 am hearing Petey screaming for his life. I instantly jumped up and screamed at the cat. I leaped over the coffee table trying to get over there in time because the cat had Petey. I smacked the cat not knowing what to do and he dropped him. I held him in my hands and petted him hoping everything would be ok. He was blinking his little eyes and beak rapidly. I knew he wasn't going to make it because I saw the blood on him from where the cat bit into him. He died right in my hands. I saved a feather from him so I will never forget him and always have a piece of him with me. We buried him in a box outside the building so he would be close. I will miss him so much. I miss hearing his little chirping every minute of the day. I didn't even have time to get him used to the new place or to us again. I feel helpless and like it was my fault.
It will never be the same without him. RIP Petey. We love you.

I am very sorry to hear about the loss of Petey. You really can't blame yourself.

That's terrible, don't blame yourself. Cats are sneaky little buggers. I am so sorry about your loss and I feel sad just reading it. Poor little fellow, rest in peace. We have cats too and I have to keep a good eye on the birds.

I am bawling my eyes out after reading your post, I know only too well the pain you are feeling right now as this is exactly how I lost my Speedy hno:

*BIG HUGS*

I can't begin to tell you how terribly sorry I am for you and your beloved Petey, I wish that there was something that I could do to change it for you, or something I could say to make it all be okay, but there is not

Just please do not beat yourself up about it, I know you may be at the moment but you know deep down that you have done everything you possibly can to give Petey the best life with you and it is not your fault what happened, there is no way that you could foresee this

I kept a feather from Speedy too I know it is little consolation to have a feather, but that along with your memories of Petey will be with you forever, and whilst they will make you cry right now, and possibly even 10 years from now there will come a time when you will be able to think of him and smile

Again I am so terribly sorry for your loss, if you need me please pm me, remember that Petey loves you with his heart and soul and even though he may not physically be with you he will be with you in spirit forever, watching over you as your little angel.

RIP Petey, fly high little one.

Default Condolences!

What a sad story.
Unfortunately, cats follow their instinct...and they see our little birds as prey.
What a terrible way to lose a special budgie.
I am so sorry!

Sigrid

Cats can knock cages over, and the cage bottoms fall off, especially if it has those small clips holding it. That happened to me twice, before I got the correct placement of furniture and decor to prevent jumping by the feral felines. Luckily, in my case, Midge wasn't harmed in any way, and just took off for the high places. Now, both my jumpers (the third can't jump due to old injury) know that if they try, they can't get to the cage, and will fall hard on their furry butts. So they have to content themselves with drooling from a distance, which they spend hours doing.

Sorry to hear about Petey and your betta.
