It is with absolute sorrow and grief that I announce the passing of my beautiful boy, Clover. Last night I saw he was gravely ill and on the brink of death, and I knew too well no vet could help him. I stayed with him all night before he took his final breath in my arms. It was so saddening to see him so full of life once more and his illness fading away, before finally passing away. He was such a kind and tolerant bird and I only wish I got to him sooner.
As his guardian I constantly blame his death on me; did I apply to much medication? Did he somehow ingest the medication? Was there something sinister I missed? But I know I did my absolute best and it was his time to join every other budgerigar in bird heaven, and finally be at peace. He was fighting for his life, and I knew too well life would be so much of a struggle to him, so in a way I am glad he is finally resting.
This is not the day he was born to the day he died, but the five days he truly lived with love and care from me. Rest in peace little buddy. Thank you all for your support. He and I are grateful, wherever we may be.
I'm so sorry for your loss... You rescued little Clover from terrible living conditions and gave him a glimpse at what a good and proper loving home is.
It really is very saddening that he only got to be with you for a scarce few days, but I'm sure during that time he knew just how much he was loved and how well you took care of him.
You did all you could for Clover, unfortunately he was too weak to recover from years of neglect on his previous home and he is now flying free on rainbow bridge.
Rest in peace, sweet Clover. You were much loved and will be missed.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
Please don't blame yourself, Clover experienced the happiest five days he ever had I am sure. His problems were huge and in you found a lovely trusting caring friend. He is always going to be with you in your heart, he is now whole again with two eyes, two legs, and more importantly a heart that has had a human who loved him. Fly high and free sweet Clover, you have earned your Angel Wings.
Little green Clover, rest in peace forever. You've earned your stripes and suffered through with a brave and courageous heart. Now may you be rewarded with eternal rest and happiness. Know that for the last five days of your life, you were loved and cherished beyond compare.
So sorry your brave little one has passed on. You gave him the best throughout his short time with you, and I know he realized it. May he live on in your heart forever, singing a cheerful song.
Best and warmest wishes to you in your grief
and Princess Mallorn!
Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic

Fly high and free with strong wings and healthy body, sweet Clover.
You are loved and will be misssed darling boy -- rest peacefully.
Hi Siena I'm deeply sorry for your loss. Please don't blame yourself you did so so much for Clover and he lived out his final days in a loving and caring home. It is so great that he finally got the chance to experience that. It was his time to pass and I'm glad you were with him for that. RIP Clover.
So sorry to hear about Clover. Even for the short time he experienced true love and care after you rescued him he would have known he was at last in loving hands. What you gave that brave little boy was priceless, and now at least he is at peace. You did everything you could.
