I am new to this forum but I wanted to post about our baby Meep. He was my son's birdy that we picked out from a hatchling. He was hand raised special for my son who is slighty autistic. My son loved his baby Meep, carrying him around on his shoulder all the time. Last night our Meepers crossed to the rainbow bridge, only 3 short months after we brought him home. He was my first birdie baby and he touched my life like he will never know. My son is so sad and misses him, we buryed him today and said our good byes to our baby. He will be missed!!! Fly free with love Meepers, we miss you greatly down here..MUAH...Mommy kisses for the pretty bird.
Thank you everyone. I will be making a collage for my son when I can look at the pictures without crying. We went out last night and got two new ones from the bin o budgies so that my son does not have any interuption in his therapy. Meep really helped my son come out of his shell. Its hard having them there but it makes the coping a little easier, they are Dooku and Vadar(my son loves star wars). But they surely are NOT like my Meepers, they are MEAN little beggars. My son woke up this morning and immediatly asked to go talk to Meep and spent about 5 minutes sitting on the ground where we buried him talking to him. I think dealing with the loss is going to be a long road for us, at least my son is talking better now, Thank you Meep!
My sincerest condolences for your loss. It's tough when you only have them for a short time and they become such an important part of your life. I found a nice picture of my tweet to make a print of and frame. I put him next to the cage so I get to see him every day when I play with the other fids. My family laughed because the print I made is bigger than my bird was and it's only a 4x6.

Aww I think I will do that when I can face the pictures again. My son went back out to Meep when he got home said "I love you, I miss you, and I want you to come back. I know you won't but I want you to. I'll be back tomorrow Meepers" My 4 year old autistic son is taking this a lot better then I am. When I can print out the pictures again I am taking a picture of him sitting on my son's shoulder and framing it with his favorite rope toy and hanging it my son's room.
Today is hard. One week today I lost my baby Meep. I miss my little buddy so much. My son is getting better with it now. The news ones we have are adjusted well to the home, but not to use, they still want nothing to do with me or my son. They love my fiance though, both of them will perch on my fiance and sit with him for a long time. But as soon as my son or I try, they fly off. Oh well, I will keep trying. Meepers...Momma misses you!
