Default R.I.P Nanuk

As some of you may remember I lost my budgie Amun about 3 months ago which completely killed me....I decided to give another beautiful bird a home and his name is Nanuk.

He was always different...he warmed to me straight away almost like he didn't know he had long on this earth and wanted to enjoy it as much as he could. When Amun died me and my mother looked everywhere for some budgie breeders but we had no luck finding any and was forced to go back to the same place we got Amun.

I was instantly drawn to Nanuk and it was almost like he was determined that he would end up with me!.

Although I only had him for 2 months and he was only 6 months old he made me laugh so much and I'm positive that no one could have given him a better life for the short time that he did have.

It caught me by complete surprise as he was playing as crazy as he always has and has 100% energy untill yesterday was he slept all day and then I noticed that he was urinating pure blood with maybe a little bit of water. He kept wanting to go into corners, I assume to be warm, so I put him on my chest and he snuggled into the corner between my neck and the pillow.

He died in my hands just like Amun did just 3 months ago....I am really hurting as Nanuk was starting to really enjoy being out of the cage and being with me.

I'm sure Amun is looking after him in heaven and I truly thank Nanuk for helping me getting over Amun and for being so open and trusting of me from the beginning.

I love you both so much and thank you for enriching my life.

R.I.P Nanuk sorry you had to leave us so soon...

Deeply saddened by 2 events which turn tragic so early in the life of your 2 budgies, Amun and Nanuk. Sorry, Jduma.

My advice is DO NOT go back to the same place to get any budgie. It looks like inbreeding to me. This could account for the death. Usually inbred budgies are very healthy and normal in look but will not live long due to gene problem.

RIP Nanuk together with Amun in Rainbow bridge.

I'm so sorry to hear that, that is so sad. It sounds like his last moments were full of love and affection with you though. May he rest in peace.

Do you have any idea what's caused either of their deaths? Like Jimm-V said, could it be the breeder? What were their diets like? I only ask to help prevent another such event because it's clear that you really love and care about your budgies.

Thank you for your support guys and I will not be going back to that pet shop ever again to get a bird. Their diet was fine, they had seed food with vegetables and I also cooked egg food for them and some millet every now and then as a treat.

They had as much exercise as any bird could hope to get and always had the opporunity to come out of the cage whenever they wanted and some great toys which they loved in their cage.

The only thing I can think of is that the breeder that the pet shop is getting them from is not breeding them in a healthy way.

For my next bird I will be going to a breeder or the RSPCA...anywhere but that petshop basically.

Thank you again for your support.

I am so sorry to hear about Nanuk. Such a terrible loss.
I know that you comforted him during his final moments so he knew he wasn't alone.
Amun and the angels will watch over Nanuk now.

Goodbye little Nanuk.
