This took a few days to get out and actually log into my computer. Ive... been having a hard time coping with this one.
Its seems now BB, my little green girl, had passed a few days ago. the day started as normal as every other morning, i was packing up to go to an art sale thing this weekend with my mom. BB and Lea's cage was cleaned and set up with fresh food and water. they had about an hour that morning of out of the cage time to fly around and enjoy the sun in the room.
Sunbathing, we like to call it.
I came home that same Sunday night to eat dinner with the family. It was my brother's 18th birthday... sort of a big thing.
well wen all was said and done i came home to let them out again before i was going to lock up for bed... and noticed both of my girls were around their favorite chew toy: a dangling toy of cardboard boxes that once held paper shreddings and braided twine for them to hold onto. It was one of the first toys i ever got for BB for christmas.
I reached in to let them out and Lea jumped up on my hand, per usual... but BB... didnt move. Didnt flinch.
I took Lea to her perch outside of the cage and turned back around to notice BB was wrapping herself around the hanging toy quite oddly.
I know this is how we learn but... it still struck me deep. I still havnt cried about it... im sure ill explode some time this week...
Lea seems alright. Her attitude hasnt changed much... but she does flock call when im out of the room now. I cant bring myself to get another bird just yet... but i cant leave her in a quiet room. its not fair.
Maybe a little radio for her when i go to work would work out? She sings to Opera when i have it on...
