Default Goodbye Artoo

In July 2016 I found a budgie outside my old house. When we couldn’t locate her owner, my husband and I decided to keep her. I looked around on the internet for budgie care advice and found this forum. It was a wealth of information and I’ve consulted it often, reading pretty much everything. I haven’t been the most active poster here…and have often avoided the memorials because I’d wind up sobbing.

Artoo was about a year old when we found her, covered in scaly face mites, starved and exhausted. I found a good local avian vet and between him, the information on these boards, and a lot of love, patience, time and attention, she went from a wild aggressive bird to a loving bonded friend.

Recently, she was diagnosed with an extremely enlarged liver. The vet suspected it was cancer as she had no signs of liver disease. We tried treating it to see it it was an infection, but after a week she did not respond and was getting worse.

Monday we made the decision to end her suffering - something I’d hoped I’d never ever have to face.

My heart is broken. I will never forget all the things this little bird taught me - both about herself and about me. She was my best bird friend and I am so blessed to have had her in my life.

As I left the vet’s office on Monday after it was over, the wind blew a feather out of her travel cage and into the sky. Some might call that a coincidence. I’d like to think she was on her way…

With the help of this forum, I learned how to give Artoo the best care — and for that I thank all of you.

Ella,
You have my deepest sympathy in your loss ofdarling Artoo.
She was so fortunate to have had you give her such wonderful care, love and attention during the time she was with you.
You've given her the greatest selfless gift you possibly could by allowing her to move on in her journey to the Rainbow Bridge.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I remember when you found her and I'm so glad you came on the forums so we all could fall in love with your little rescue as well.

She obviously received the best and most loving care throughout her life. I'm so sorry for your loss and you're in my thoughts

Now she's surely watching over you still, free of pain

Rest in peace, little Artoo. Fly high among the stars.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I think that it is extra hard right now to lose a beloved animal companion.
