Default Sunshine

Sunshine passed away July 10th without warning. I found her at the bottom of the cage that morning. Sunshine hatched with severe spinal deformities that made it impossible for her to fly (fused shoulders) and even play normally. Her hunched back caused her to always be off balance, and she couldn't preen her lower back and vent area. She never let her deformities get her down though! She could climb anything and anywhere! Sunshine was always in good spirits!

Sunshine beat the odds in a "parrot mill" facility where she was hatched for Petsmart. She somehow ended up being shipped to the store, where she sat in isolation for weeks waiting to be adopted. How she slipped through their "vet assured" pet program is a mystery to me! I am so glad I gave her a spoiled and happy year.

NOW she gets to know what it is really like to FLY FREE!

That's really great. Now she can finally fly, which I'm sure she has wished to do for ages.

That was a great story.

Rest in Peace, sweet Sunshine. She knew how much you loved her and now she is flying high and free! Keep her memory close to your heart.

Sunshine already departed 2 months ago. Sad we got to hear it now. A belated memorial service for her, thanks for being a good samaritan for giving happy moments to a handicapped budgie.

RIP Sunshine. Fly high and fly free to wherever you wish.
