Default my beloved Oocho passed away this morning....

My heart is breaking as Oocho, who just turned 12 this month, passed away this morning. ... He had almost dies 3 times and broke his foot last March but fought through..

It`s amazing how fast he died. He stopped jumping around his cage about a week ago. I took him to the vet and they said the change in weather and his age was making him weak. I tried feeding but he just got weaker and weaker until he weight was down about 5 grams and couldn`t stand. .. The last 2 nights he slept a few hours on my shoulder and i knew he didn`t have long left...

I was off from work today and he died in my hands as I tried to feed him....The last 3 years he had jumped on my shoulder in the morning and we ate breakfast together regardless of how much time or what time I woke up...

I have another budgie but Oocho was my first and he was more like my son. I`ve spent the whole day crying.....I loved him as much as anyone....

I`m not sure if I`ll get another budgie or not but no bird or person will every replace Oocho. I feel lucky to have spent such a long time with him and it will take me a long time not to hurt....

I’m so very sorry for your loss of Oocho. No one can take the place of our most beloved ones. I know, it is deeply heartbreaking. We are here for you. 12 years is a very long life for a budgie. He had a wonderful long life. I’m glad you were home and with him to the end. Rest In Peace dear Oocho.

Iím so sorry you lost your precious boy. He was obviously extremely loved and very well taken care of to have been with you for 12 wonderful years. Iím sure you have lots of beautiful memories that, in time, will make you smile. You are in my thoughts at this very difficult time.

Fly high and free over Rainbow Bridge sweet Oocho.

How wonderful that you had 12 great years together with Oocho.
I'm so very sorry for your loss.
It is because of Love we Grieve
and
Because of Love we are also comforted
in our Sorrow

In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort
Fly high and soar freely sweet Oocho; rest in peace now little man.

I'm so sorry for the passing of Oochoo

I can imagine you must be going through a difficult time - I hope with time, your grief turns to fond recollection of all the wonderful years you shared with him.

Rest in peace, Oochoo

Thanks everyone for you kind messages..it`s been a tough few days..

.yesterday, Thursday is my day off and I enjoyed spending the morning with Oocho as my wife and friends are working...It was brutally lonely even with my other budgie "A.J.."

I`m worried though as even though AJ and Oocho were in separate cages and didn`t really interact,,,they use to chirp to each other every day....AJ lost his best friend last summer.
AJ doesn`t seem to be eating much and is losing weight..I`m wondering if he`s lonely as he keeps looking around..I have a few days off next week and my wife is going on a trip at the end of the week.

I`m thinking I should get another budgie,,It may be good for both of us..

I can`t stop breaking down.....not sure what to do....and I can`t lose AJ too
