Unhappy My Budgie died suddenly. Im heartbroken.

Hi.My name is Jon. I very recently had the sad experience of the passing of my little blue Budgie, Rubix. She was very cheeky, and loved to talk all the time. I taught her to say, "Good Boy", even though she was a girl, that i didnt realise untill later when she got older. She would say that to me all the time, it was so lovely to hear. Last monday night i noticed she seemed very quiet, even when i put the music on she didnt talk, as she always would in the past. Later that night she was behaving unusual, sitting in the feed bowl, then sleeping on the cage floor and just looking very sad and tired. Not long after that i noticed she bagan to weaken, and got even weaker as the night grew later. I tried to comfort her, held her and groomed her stomach and head softly but i could sense something was terribly wrong with her. I put her back in the cage on a warm cloth, but i could sense she was going to pass away. She feel out of the cage to the surface below, an inch or so, and as i put her gently back in the cage she seemed to be breathing very fast and was growing weaker by the second. She fluttered her wing's and body one last time then she passed away.She would have been 2 years old in January 2011,so young still I tried my best to show her attention when i was not busy, and took her out of her cage every day to fly around my apartment. I had no idea she was so sick, if i had known i would have gone to the Vet. I dont understand what happened to her, just the day before she was talking as normal and seemed fine. Even 2 hours before she died she gave me her little kisses and was sitting on my shoulder. I feel realy guily that i did not give her proper attention. I loved and love her so much, i told her this before she died. If anybody here has any idea as to the cause of her sudden passing i would be so happy to hear from you. My house is so empty without her. R.I.P Rubix

Jon, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I know how you feel, my little girl Ginger, she died suddenly but she wasn't sick, so I don't have any answers for you. I do know how much your heart is aching and that you feel so terrible about it. But, it's not your fault. From what I've read birds can hide their sickness for a long time until it's too late. It's very hard to tell when they are sick. She knew you loved her and that's what you need to remember, that and the good times you had with her.
RIP Rubix and fly free and high over the rainbow bridge.

Lynda

I am SO sorry. Most of the budgie diseases can't be treated and you couldn't have done anything. She probably hid it for so long. They can get a disease from their cage being dirty. But anyway it's not your fault.I know ho it is. My friend had a budgie that I basicially called my own. Suddenly he died without notice. I don't know. I'm so sorry. And if it makes you feel better this is for her: Rubix

I am so sorry for your loss of Rubix. She sounded like a delightful little companion and quite the charmer too. Very special indeed.

It is very difficult to speculate about what might have caused her death... The only way to answer that question would be to have a necropsy performed on her. I know many budgie owners are not comfortable with that, but it can sometimes help provide closure.

Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss. I too know the pain of losing a special friend. Hang in there; time helps to heal.

Fly high, fly free, fly forever Rubix...

I am so sorry to hear about little Rubix. These friends of ours are so fragile, and so good at hiding their illnesses. You gave her the loving care as soon as you realized how sick she was. It sounds like she loved you back and gave you kisses, maybe goodbye.
Fly high little one...

Fly free Rubix. What a great friendship you both had. These little one are very delicate and can die without much sign of illness. Please don't feel like it is your fault.

Im so sorry to hear of your loss. Its so sad when we loose one of our little buddies. I so feel your pain. This summer I lost my 2, three year old buddies. I lost them both to tumors. Cloud died on soft tissue in hes cage I held her for a long time, I knew it was almost the end, Dr told me what to watch for. Sky Pilot died in my hands. I heard him start peeping and took him and cupped him on my chest. He passed warm and comfortabley. I'm miss them so much, just watching them was a treat. I now have 4 very young ones, my work is cut out for me.
