I have been away from Talk Budgies for a bit. My 9 yr old albino female budgie, Whitey Ford(my husband named her after the baseball player)passed away at noon today. The last 2 yrs required monthly beak trims (most likely liver issues )from the vet and the past yr she had some additional health issues where I had to orally medicate for infections, but I was willing to do anything for her.
Unfortunately, Whitey showed signs of another bacterial infection last wk.
We went to the vet and were giving her oral medication but she then began vomiting.
Enough was enough and I knew she was declining.It had already been 13 days of medicating.
I have 3 others birds in a nearby flight cage and one of the young 2 yrs old males, Archie, was bonded to Whitey. So she gently passed a little while ago and I am sad. She was a very strong and determined rescue bird and had rallied from illness many times this past yr. I know I have to monitor Archie especially even though there is another male and female in the flock. I know eventually I will want to get another one and have to quarantine that one. Any advice would be appreciated. We will bury her later today but I know I am a better person for allowing this little white bird into my heart.
I don't know what to say, but she was a cute little angel and will always be in everyone's heart so don't worry when our time comes to go to the rainbow bridge we all will meet our cute pets and at that time we will stay with them for forever.
I'm very sorry for your loss of darling little Whitey.
She was fortunate to have had such loving care and to have shared your life.
I thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.
All I have are memories
and a picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake,
with which I'll never part.
God has you in His keeping,
I have you in my heart.
