Default RIP Kiwi

My little angel Kiwi passed away at the vets today, while I was on my way to see him and to hopefully bring him home. He was battling respiratory issues, whether they were caused by an infection or something more sinister I will never know as I couldn't bear to have him cut open to investigate, the vet did offer to carry out the procedure for free but I just wanted to bring him home.

You fought to the end Kiwi, we tried everything to save you but it just wasn't enough. Can't believe I've lost yet another beautiful budgie, either I'm the worst budgie owner in the world or I'm just having so much bad luck. Was my birthday today too, I was hoping for the best gift I could ever have, to bring Kiwi home and to hear him chirping & to see him playing with his toys but it just wasn't meant to be.

Go fly high over Rainbow Bridge Kiwi, you could never fly while you were down here with me as you lost all your flight feathers shortly after we brought you home but there's nothing stopping you from flying high up there, your be free of pain now too. Will always love you & we'll see each other again one day xx









And here's a link to a youtube video I uploaded of him playing with one of his favourite toys for anyone who'd like to watch, that's how I'd like to remember him, having fun.

Oh Paul, Iím so sorry. What a horrid birthday, though as you mentioned in your other post, maybe it was Kiwiís last gift to you, to take away the awful decision of whether or not to put him out of his discomfort.
He looks to have been such a perfect little guy even without his flight, and the video is a treasure.
Fly high little guy

Hi Paul and huge hugs to you at this devastating time. Budgies are the most amazing little birds, with huge personalities and they easily plant themselves firmly in our hearts. Every time I read of one passing, I cry like it was my own and my heart breaks for the poor owner. You are not the worst budgie parent. You're obviously extremely loving and gave Kiwi the best home he could ask for. I love the photos you shared, especially the last one of you giving Kiwi a kiss.

I like to believe our pets never truly leave us. You may not be able to see him, but he will be with you. When you feel a nice breeze blow past your cheek on a nice summer day, that'll be Kiwi, flying by to say hello.

Thinking of you at this very difficult time and please feel free to send me a message if you'd like to talk.

Paul,

I'm very sorry for your loss of darling Kiwi.
It is obvious Kiwi was much loved and will be sorely missed.

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid you see.
I flew to Him when I heard His call
I had to go and leave you all..

I could not stay another day
To chirp, to fly, to preen, to play.
All things undone must stay that way
I found my peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A song, a snuggle and many a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much
My happy home, my Daddy's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't spend yours now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.


Modified from poem written by: Janice M. Fair-Salters

Fly high and soar freely sweet Kiwi; rest peacefully now wee man.

Paul, I’m so very sorry to hear of Kiwi’s passing. How heartbreaking, and on your birthday no less. He was such a cute little guy. I’m so sorry he could not be saved.
