Default RIP Jenni

Apologies if I've posted this in the wrong place.

Hello

I've not been on the forum for a very long time, and not sure if folks will remember when I was. But it's been a difficult few months due to personal issues. I wanted to post this as today Jenni had to be put to sleep.

I adopted her and Simmi last year, to try and give them a better home and life as the previous owners had been less than caring. Jenni has never been a well budgie and came with severe feather loss and other problems. In brief, she has had suspected ovarian problems though the special bird vet was never sure if that's what it was. She's been 'self harming' pecking at herself on her stomach and causing it to bleed. Then the other day when I came home, something must've happened as she could no longer use one of her legs. This is the shortish version..took her to the vets today who thinks she may have had any number of things to have caused this, and is probably in pain, and that the leg can't be fixed. She said to put her to sleep would be the kindest thing.

It's been very hard today but I hope I've done the right thing. I'm so upset, and also very worried about Simmi as they've been together for at least nine years, as a bonded pair. She was definitely the dominant one and often picked on him a bit but he always seemed to love her. Am with him now and so far, he seems OK but I don't know what to expect. I imagine it could go either way, that he might be fine as he seems to have bonded with me a bit and is quite friendly now, in his own way. But I wonder if he may get 'depressed' due to Jenni no longer being here. As I say, so far today, he seems fine.

If you've advice, please let me know.

Thank you

Hi Susan,

I certainly remember your Jenni and Simmi and I'm very sorry to hear of the problems you have been having with your budgie girl.
When a beloved pet no longer has enough quality of life and we run out of options in terms of fixing the health issues, the kindest thing to do really is to ease their pain and suffering, say our goodbyes and let the vet help them in their journey to the rainbow bridge.
I know how difficult it is to go through this and you have my deepest sympathies. I'm sure Jenni knows how much she was loved and cared for while with you and she could not have asked for a better owner than you.

Be sure to give Simmi some extra TLC especially in the first weeks of adjustment. By paying close attention to his behaviour, you will also be in a better position to decide what is best for his welfare and happiness.
If he copes and adjusts fairly well to the new reality, then you can keep him as a solo budgie.
If not, you may consider adopting an older budgie to be friends with Simmi. A male budgie could be a good choice.

I'm wishing you and Simmi all the best in this very challenging time.

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

Fly High and Free little one -- Rest In Peace

Susan I'm so sorry that you had to go through that. It's never easy, and I am so sorry for your loss. My heart breaks for you right now, as I know what it's like to have no choice but to do what you did. It really is the kindest and most humane thing to do in this case. I also know that not much can help at this point. At least it didn't with me. I felt extreme guilt, and still do to this day, and it's been almost 5 years. But you did what was best for Jenni. She was very ill, and as you said not well since you got her. You gave her the best home possible, she was very lucky to have you caring for her. Unfortunately, sometimes there;s just nothing that can be done, despite our desperate want and need for it.

You of course have my deepest sympathies and sincerest condolences for your loss of sweet Jenni.

RIP Jenni, fly high and free and sing a happy song!!!


Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When a bird dies that has been especially close to someone here, that bird goes to the Rainbow Bridge.
At the Rainbow Bridge there are meadows and hills and beautiful trees of all kinds where all our special friends can fly and climb, hang and flap, hop and run, jump and play, squawk and squeal and sing together.

There is plenty of good food, including grapes and peanuts, ice cream and cheese, spaghetti and especially lots of pizza. There is crystal clear water in brooks and springs are filled with water as well as every kind of delicious fresh fruit juice.

One warm spring even runs full of the coffee they can now drink their fill of without hearing a single no-no. There is lots of glorious sunshine, and sweet warm rain when they want it and our friends are warm and comfortable and totally at peace.

All the birds who had been ill or old are restored to health and vigor and to their natural incredible beauty. Their feathers shine, their wing feathers are whole, and their eyes gleam once again with vitality.

Those who were hurt or maimed or ignored or broken-hearted are made whole and strong and free of fear again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by.

The birds are happy and content..... except for one small thing - they each miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind when the bird returned home. Still they all fly and play happily and safely and noisily together - even the grouchiest greys and orneriest senegals, the tiniest finches and the grandest macaws.

But the day comes for each bird when he suddenly stops and looks far into the distance. His body freezes and his bright eyes are intent as he watches and listens in silence. Suddenly he begins to fly from the group, soaring over the green grass, his wings flapping harder and harder!

You have been spotted - and he shrieks to you and then calls your name and his own and cries again and again and as he rushes toward you.

When you and your bird finally meet, you cling to each other in joyous reunion, knowing you will never be parted again.

Your face and your fingers - and even your toes - are covered with beak nibbles and soft ecstatic kisses. Your hair is preened by that special beak, and his head bends under your fingers to invite your touch. Your hands again find their way under beloved wings, to caress the downy softness beneath.

You look once more into the trusting eyes of your companion-so long gone from your physical life on earth, but never for an instant absent from your heart.

Your tears of joy are gently brushed away by those beloved wings... and feeling immersed once more in total contentment and love, you and your beloved companion cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

I'm so sorry to hear of little Jenni's death, she was a beautiful, resilient little girl and her days spent with you were the best of her life

You always took such loving care of her and her mate and I know she felt that.

Now she is whole and free again, flying high above the rainbow bridge. Keep her close to your heart and she will always be with you.

I'm thinking of you and Simmi during this very challenging time of grief

Rest in peace, little Jenni, you will be missed.

I remember you Susan. I am so very sorry for the loss of your Jenni. Please accept my sincere Apologies..

Fly high in the sky beautiful Jenni. You were very much loved by your Mum.



Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow. Why then, oh, why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow why, oh, why can't I?

I'm sorry you are going through this with your little budgies right now. I am certain you did the right thing for Jenni, given the fact she was in pain and nothing could be done to rectify that for her. Jenni's time here with you was a beautiful honor for you both. She knew a loving home with you. And you did all you could to honor her beautiful little life and keep her away from pain and harm. That is a beautiful thing. Rest peacefully Jenni.

Good chance the bird will be depressed about his friend passing. But since you get along with him, it will go better. He could be ready for a new cagemate fairly soon, and if they click, he will be fine. Good Luck.

So sorry to hear about Jenni but she knew how much you loved her and is flying high on Rainbow Bridge waiting for you. Keep and eye on Simmi I think it is only natural for him to be sad and you can comfort each other.
