Some of you may remember the fabulous advice you gave me to care for Honey, my ten year old beautiful English budge, who lost the use of her little leg and foot.
Well she sadly passed away on Friday.
I knew she wasn't herself when I got up to go to the gym and just spent that time with her instead. We got a vet appointment but the vet said there really wasn't much she could do ( sadly no avian vets on our little island). However my hubby didn't want me to make that decision this time and we had to try. so the vet gave her a painkiller and Meds, telling me the next 24 hours were crucial.
I took Honey home, lowered the special flat perch closer to the cage floor in caste she moved and fell, put the millet nearby and some food, and Then let her rest on the perch, listening to the radio. I had to go to work. Lucky my boss is very understanding and I drove home an hour later to check on her.
When I walked in even though the radio was blaring, the apartment was quiet and I knew she had gone to sleep and choose not to wake up. She was not in pain and she chose her moment to go and join Bobby.
She had a wonderful long life, with the best of everything. Since she hurt her leg and foot, after Bobby passed, she showed she loved me too and the bond we had the last 18 months was amazing. I feel honored to have had such a wonderful little feathered baby and I miss her.
We buryed her with Bobby, Baxter, Angel and Harri. Fly high Honey x
I do remember your thread on your sweet Honey, How lovely to have shared an amazing ten years with you.
It is always a hard decision to make but it is the last gift we can offer to our feathered loved one. You gave Honey the best possible care you could, she is now flying high with her special Angel wings and once more with her other flock members.
The sadness will lessen with time, memories are forever. Fly high and free sweet Honey.
No matter how long we have been blessed by their companionship, it's never easy to part with a much beloved and special little friend, you have my deepest sympathies.
May time heal the pain from no longer having your precious Honey around and hopefully soon the many memories of the good times you had with your budgie girl will give you comfort. Your Honey will continue to live on in your heart.
I'm sending my prayers and best wishes in this very difficult time.
Rest in peace, Honey. You were much loved and will be missed.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
I know how difficult it to say goodbye to much loved pets that have shared our lives for so long.
You have my deepest sympathy in your loss.
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 I’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
I have you in my heart.
Fly high, soar free darling Honey; rest peacefully now little one.
Aww - I'm so sad you lost your little Honey. I loved reading about her long, full life with you and her beloved Bobby. I pray your happy memories of her will comfort you in time.
Please accept my deepest sympathy
Unending Thanks, Ms FaeryBee, for the Absolute Perfect Picture!
Thank you all so much for your lovely thoughts. It's so quiet in the apartment, I've not had at least one budgie around for over 20 years. It was a hard weekend.
I just sorting the cage and toys and throwing out broken and worn stuff from the bird cupboard and giving everything a good thorough clean. I do feel a bit sad as normally when I do the weekly clean I'm chatting to her and she on the perch looking at me waiting for the fresh millet.
My husband has contacted our local breeder and we look to offering our home to two babies in a few weeks time. So time for me to read up on training tips.
