It is with nothing more than with grief and sorrow that I announce the passing of Tweety. At exactly 6:40, 01/08/15, he lost his battle to cancer in my hand and passed over the rainbow bridge. This death is by far the most difficult to cope with; Tweety and I have been together for more than 7 happy years, and I have bred him my own. To see this lively, cheeky and playful baby so weak, frail and sickly the past few days have killed me, but I am so glad his suffering is over. My love for him goes without measure; he was my precious, sweet little boy and nobody will understand that better than I. He was looking so ill and I knew he wouldnt make it, so I held him in my hands and watched him helplessly as he coughed up what seemed like gallons of blood, and gave his final breath.
Such a brutal way to die was not necessary; he was a noble little boy and deserved far better than that gruesome way, and my hatred towards this terrible illness grows moreso. Cancer has taken away everybody I love, and it continues to claim more lives. I have a strong ambition to put an end to this illness, whether its the last thing I do. I rest now knowing that Tweety will never be in my arms again, and that he is no longer suffering, but I am selfish and want him back more than anything. I grew up with this bird and having him taken away like this is so heartbreaking. My account will no longer be dedicated to budgies, but to a budgie, the poor Persues who is suffering as much as I am with this loss. He did so much to save Tweety and fed him, preened him and sat beside him. So I say now as my final words to him that I love him more than anything I could ever dream of, and you will be missed for all of eternity.
I'm so sorry for your loss... I know how difficult it is to say the final goodbye to a much beloved little friend, even more so when it was one of our chicks that we have watched grow and have loved since day 1, I can perfectly relate to how you feel. You have my deepest sympathies over this heartbreaking loss.
Though the deep pain is hard to bare, time will heal your heart and hopefully soon you will be able to remember fondly the 7+ years of happy memories you had with your boy. Tweety will continue to live on in your heart.
I'm sending my best wishes to you and Perseus and hope you will feel better soon.
Rest in peace, Tweety. You were much loved and will be missed.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
My thoughts and love to you and Perseus, Tweety is free from pain and illness he is with our Angel Flock flying high and free. He gave you an amazing gift, seven years of trust and love remember the love he gave to you . Fly high little one no more sadness or hurt for you.
Fly high, soar free sweet Tweety; rest peacefully little one.
I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
I think of you in silence. I often speak your name.
Now all I have is memories, and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which Iíll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
I have you in my heart.
My heart goes out to you, to see a small budgie fighting such a terrible disease must have been very hard to deal with but yet you were always there when Tweety needed you. May he rest in peace and forever be free from pain, flying high over rainbow bridge.
