Unhappy My Milo

I am utterly devastated and so is my other budgie, Ciara.

A couple of weeks back, I noticed Milo's little bum a bit swollen. We went to the vet and she said he had fatty liver and I had some meds with milk thistle extract to give to him. I had a budgie a few years back and that medicine bought her 7 more months!! Anyways, I guess Milo was further along when it was caught. I had such hope for him and even though he slept more than he usually did, he still played, ate and flew! This past week, he got subtly worse. By Thursday, he squealed when he tried to poop and I knew it was time. It is the worst feeling in the world to bring your beloved pet to someone to put to sleep.

Now my Ciara. She LOVED him SO much. They have been together for 6 years and she doted on him. She did have her own cage, but would only go into it at night because she had to (she did try to stay with him in his cage). They spent all their waking time in his cage and when I went out, they stayed together in his cage as well. I thought that by taking away a cage, it would make it easier for both of us. I took her cage into the other room and she was a bit freaked at first, but then settled in somewhat. When I closed the blinds to put her to bed, she did not want to stay in his cage but looked for hers. She did go in, but hung off the side. I covered her and talked and sang to her. I felt like such a meanie!! I wasn't sure what to do. I got her up this morning and she was on a perch.

I have talked to my vet and she said if she was too upset tonight to put her cage back for a while. Has anybody had any experience with this? Also, I wanted one cage in my other room, as I would like to get a friend for her soon, but they need to be in quarantine, so....yeah..anyway, I appreciate any thoughts/advice/comments on the matter.

It is SO painful watching her go through this. If it were just my pain, I could handle it a lot better. Also, people are worried because I have pretty much stopped my life to stay inside with her and I know that is not the best thing to do either.

Colleen & Ciara

I am so sorry for you loss.
It is so kind of you to think about the surviving partner, Ciara, in this time of grief.
I have seen this myself. When my Snoopy lost her partner, she went into a bad depression. As bad as I felt I looked on shelter websites to find a new partner for her.
Finally, I found a budgie at a shelter and raced to get him. But..we still had quarantine to consider. It was so difficult to see Snoopy suffer and not being able to tell her that there was another budgie in the house. After the 4 weeks were up, we slowly introduced them and Snoopy was ok again.

My condolences to you and Ciara for your loss.
Budgies, like people do grieve and this will be a hard time for both of you.
I hope you can find comfort in each other and remember the good times with Milo.

RIP Milo.
