I really didn't think even in my worst nightmare that I will be here not even 6 months after my last budgie passed away... Especially not writing about my favorite one. I know it's wrong having favorites but we did.
His name was Teo, he was only 6 years old. We bought him and instantly fell in love with him. He was already widowed two times and then for the third time 6 months ago when Pero died.
He always lived with a flock but was really bonded with us and tame, gave us kisses, fly to us...
He vomited on and off since we got him and took him to the vet couple of times but every test was fine and he was really cheerful little fellow.
We did notice he was acting strange 2 months ago, he was sleeping more, eating more so we took him to the vet again but once again all the test turned out fine and vet recommended probiotics. After that he was fine again untill last Thursday when I first saw him sitting on the floor. He was down there but would soon hop back up and went back to playing with his friends. This was going on for the entire weekend and on Monday we visited vet again. At that point, overnight he was really weak but vet was optimistic, gave us meds and minerals, told us to keep him warm and AGAIN redid the tests.
He was on the floor most of the day, he only tried to fly when my husband came home from work, like he was happy to see him. After that he was getting worse and soon couldn't even stand anymore. We held him in our hands near a radiator and he was looking at us the whole time but couldn't move. His breathing got slow and after we said our goodbyes he was gone. It wasn't until then we realized how skinny he was.
I didn't want to take him to necropsy so we never found out what killed him, we decided to bury him in our garden, at the same place we grew millet for him.
I put him in a box with millet which he loved, his favorite cup and pictures of him with his flock so they can be together. It was really painful.
I'm so sad
