Default My little Oliver

As I write this my heart is breaking. Oliver, my little parakeet died yesterday. He was 13 1/2. I loved him so much. He was the little "runt of the litter" when I picked him out. He was smaller than the other birds and was being picked on. He blossomed and was such a great little guy. He was healthy his entire life until about 6 1/2 months ago. I posted previously about his illness. I am not sure what caused his illness, some sort of vestibular problem, maybe the result of a stroke. He was such a trooper and made accomadations to help with his balance problem. Up until yesterday he was eating, preening himself, perching and taking care of himself. I came home yesterday, it looks like he just fell from his perch, he would hold onto his wiffle balls that hung from the ceiling of his cage. They were out of place and nothing seemed to be disturbed otherwise. I had cleaned his cage out in the morning so I could tell that he had been eating all day and pooping. I think he may have just had a sudden, massive stroke, I don't think he suffered. But it still hurts. Everyone I talked to was always amazed at his age, I know most parakeets do not live to be 13. He was just a little fighter. I did everything I could for him and do not have any regrets but it still hurts, I miss him so much. Maybe later I will be able to post a picture of Oliver, my little sweetheart.

Oh no. I am so sorry to hear about your little Oliver. I remember you asking about him a few months ago since you had some concerns at that time...

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help. It is so hard to lose a special friend and while things won't feel the same, they do get better and easier. Hold on to the happy thoughts of your time with Oliver and he will be with you forever.

We'd love to see some pictures so whenever you are up to it, please feel free.

Fly high, fly free, fly forever Oliver...

My condolences for your loss.
You were an amazing caretaker and giver to Oliver, he lived a good long life.
As Kim has mentioned, if there is anything we can do or if you need a sounding board, remember we are here to help.
May Oliver rest in peace.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. 13 years is a mammouth age and the bond you would have shared would've been so strong. As you were there for Oliver if we are here for you. *big hugs* and fly high sweet Oliver over the rainbow bridge where you can perch on the edge and see your momma

Thank you so much to everyone for your kind thoughts. So many people out there who do not have budgies do not understand how sweet and loving these little guys are, it means so much to hear from those that understand. I am doing better but still miss my little Oliver. I will continue to check back on the sight to read the stories and help with any questions I might be able to answer. Take care everyone!
Claudia
