My budgie Deanie was just killed by one of our cats. I was in my brothers room posting on TB. They were out on a perch in my room. Dear God, I had no idea the cat was under my bed. I heard a crash, and I ran into my room. Clover (The cat) was bending over Deanie(with feathers in her mouth), feathers everywhere. I shoved her away. Deanie had no tail feathers, and was hardly able to breath. I picked her up and screamed. Everyone came running but it was too late. My mom took her, but she was already dead. I haven't cried this much in a long time. Buddy was up on the cage the whole time. His flying ability has always been better. I gave him two baths, and put him back in the cage. But the I don't think the cat even touched him. Deanie was so young... Not even a year old. But even after this, I can't find anyone to blame. Except myself... The cat, was just being a cat... Buddy doesn't seem to be affected, but then they hardly really lived together... I don't know if I can ever have another Budgie, it's just too painful. (But then again, looking at my signature, maybe I will crawl out from under the bed some day...)
Oh I am so sorry to read this, I know this pain all to well, this is how my Speedy died, please try not to blame yourself, I know you will feel immense sadness, guilt and emptiness, but none of that will change what happened, Deanie is with you in spirit and always will be, please remember that, I am sorry that you have to go through this tragic pain, and I hope that pain eases for you soon. Try to be strong now for Buddy, he needs you now more than ever.
R.I.P Deanie fly high baby xoxo
