BettyBeatrice is on a distinguished road
Default RIP Beatrice

I'm really not sure how to cope right now. I just got a new budgie to add to the family and things were going pretty well between the three girls. Monday I was cleaning their cage and Beatrice, ever the trouble maker, took off. She flew directly into a window and died shortly afterward in my hands. I don't know whether it was trauma or if she broke something but I'm just stunned. I keep thinking it shouldn't have killed her. On top of, you know, blaming myself. Shouldn't have had the blinds up, shouldn't have had the cage wide open, should have waited to change the liner until they were settled down (it was right after they ate and they were all jacked up).

Now Betty keeps picking on Petra, looking for her friend I think, and I've had to separate them. I hope this doesn't have to be permanent, and once she's done grieving she'll be more accepting.

Oh I am so sorry to hear this. I know this is completely devastating for you.

Unfortunately accidents sometimes do happen and we live with the guilt of 'what if's'. This is a true lesson on just how quickly accidents can happen and how unsafe our homes can be for our birds - one that you have unfortunately learned the extremely hard way.

Please don't beat yourself up though, it was an accident and not at all an intention. You are a good pet owner who clearly loves your budgies very much.

RIP Beatrice.

Oh, Lizzy, you must be feeling terrible!

As Niamh said, it is not your fault and unfortunately everything happened to go wrong at once instant. We can never predict when something we have no control over will happen and we could lose our little ones.

I know for every second of her life, Beatrice was loved and cherished. You cared for her like only a mother could, and she knew it for sure.

May her memory live on, undaunted.

I hope the girls slowly adjust to the sudden loss of their friend and that your grief turns to happy remembrances of the time you spent with Beatrice.

Rest in eternal peace and live happily on the Rainbow Bridge, little girl. You will be missed.

My thoughts are with you during this time of grief

I am very sorry for the loss of Beatrice.. You should not blame yourself it was an accident.. Maybe Beatrice got spooked and got a scare and took off flying into the window... Please don't blame yourself you were looking after your birds with cleaning out there cages... I no it is a bit of a shock and so very sad it is hard when we lose a beloved bird, animal.. Your heart is acking cause you loved Beatrice so much.... It will take some time for your other birds to settle down...But accidents sometimes happen and we learn from them.... This is a lesson on just how quickly accidents can happen and how unsafe our homes can sometime be for our birds.. But we make our houses safe for our little ones...Its not your fault we are here for you if you want to talk to us....To stop this happening again you can put curtains on your windows.... Again i am so very sorry... Please forgive yourself and learn we are here to help everyone and not to judge on each person... I would be so upset if this happened to Indigo he is my life. A pome i made up myself i share with people..Rest in peace Beatrice you were very much loved by your loving Mum....


Beatrice you were my sweet little one
sent down from God's heaven sky's to you
I have no idea why
you were the sunshine of my life
you were so special to me in every way
You would run around
and play each and every day
When I came home you flew over to me
from Across the room you looked up at me
from your short little world she sees
Our unforgettable love will remain forever
Beatrice You are my sunshine of my heart in every way

I'm very sorry for the unfortunate accident that lead to your Beatrice's passing... You have my deepest sympathies.
As your heart heals, may you soon find comfort on the memories of the happy times you had with your girl.

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

I'm very sorry for your loss of little Beatrice.

It's good that you've separated Betty and Petra at this time.

Perhaps giving them supervised out-of-cage time together for awhile will help them become more accustomed to one another and you will be able to house them together in the future.
It is because of Love we Grieve
and
Because of Love we are also comforted
in our Sorrow

In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort.
Fly High and Free little Beatrice-- Rest In Peace sweet girl.

I'm so sorry to hear that Beatrice has left you. I'm sure you are in shock right now, but please try not to blame yourself.We are all only human and we do things with the best intentions. This was just a tragic accident. Beatrice is at peace now and remembering you with love. I'm thinking of you at this sad time ,Lizzie. All the best with your other birds.

As others have said, this was a terrible accident - without experience, it's very difficult to see this kind of thing coming. I know it's hard not to blame yourself, but guilt will not bring little Beatrice back, and will just torment you no end. Perhaps you could honor her memory by taking this to heart, and looking out for such hazards in the future.
I am very sorry for your loss - may Beatrice rest in peace, and may you find comfort in your happy memories of a better time
Please accept my deepest condolences, and prayers for your healing
