Sande I am so very sorry to hear about Stormy. It sounds as all of you had such a lovely relationship. I wish there was something I could do for you both. I am sending you lots of positive, warm thoughts.
So sorry to hear about Stormy. It hurts so much when they have to go. Hope you and Sparkle comfort each other. Fly high little budgie. You will all be together one day. RIP Stormy. Beautiful little boy.
I have a question regarding Stormy's partner in crime.
Its been a few weeks since Stormy passed and Sparkle is not doing well.
Those two were more like twins and Sparkle is like a total different budgie.
He was the loud one, the one always flying around the cage and was trained to get on my hand (he preferred that inside of stepping up on finger), he sang for hours.
Now he sits on the far corner of the cage and only leaves the spot to eat which I am concerned about because I've actually only seen him in the bowl a dozen times.
He rarely sings and the budgie would stay on my hand so long my back hurt from leaning into the cage won't come near my hand. If I put my hand near him or attempt to have him step up he will take a quick peck which he never did before. He won't get up on the swing for a rub which he would do several times a day. The other day he did something I've never saw him do. I have a small bowl that I keep pieces of egg shells in. That was Stormy's favorite spot to land and rest. I never saw Sparkle go near that bowl...now on the rare occasion he does leave his perch in the corner that is where he goes.
Could he be so heart broken from Stormy's death? As I stated in my original post I wasn't in the room when Stormy passed.
Anyone ever had one of their budgie be heart broken like this?
I f they were together from the start and very bonded as you said . He will probably be missing him a lot and still grieving for. Its only time that will help. And perhaps in the future as someone else said .you might get a little budgie friend for him. So sorry for you and and Sparkle. RIP Stormy.
