Bye Sweet Joey
1 Attachment(s)
I held my daughter's 10yr old 'Joey' Thursday afternoon as she passed away. The photo is from Aug 2011, Joey (white) visiting with Sami who is only 2yrs old at the time. I still have Sami who misses his big sister. They always had their own cage, but were allowed playtime together as long as they played nice. Any suggestions as to how I can help Sami thru this?

Welcome to talk budgies. I'm sorry to hear of the passing of Joey. Ten years is a good long life for a budgie and you obviously have taken great care of her and Sami.
No doubt Sami will join you all in a period of sadness and emptiness at her leaving. Spend as much time as you can with him, and maybe add a few new toy's to his cage to help distract him from missing her...:hug:

You have my deepest sympathies over the loss of your Joey. :( No matter for how long we have had them, saying goodbye is never easy. Time will ease the grief and hopefully soon the memories of the good 10 years you had with Joey will give you comfort.

If despite the extra TLC given to your Sami, you notice he doesn't seem to be coping well and appears depressed, you may want to consider getting him a new same species friend.

Rest in peace, beautiful Joey. You were much loved and will be missed

And despite the very sad circumstances, welcome to the forums.

Well, after dinner tonight Sami tried to eat but was too weak and fell over. I held him for an hour until he passed away too, from a broken heart. Thank you for your suggestions, kind words and support. I did spend most of the afternoon with him and he was starting to chirp a wee bit. Give your budgies and soft kiss for me.

I'm so so sorry for your losses of Joey and Sami. .Biggest hugs to you and your family. Rest in peace, little ones.

Oh I am sad for you :( I'm so sorry for your losses. Please accept my condolences. That's got to be hard being hit twice like this in the same day.

I can't help but wonder why you lost Sami only a few hours later (figuring from time of your posts). Birds can mourn, but they typically don't pass away from a broken heart, and especially not immediately. Please forgive me for wondering, but I wonder if somehow, some sort of toxin had gotten to them, especially the fact that he was weak and couldn't eat. Hugs, take care.
