Hello everyone again! I'm not sure if you remember me, but I haven't been on the forums in a few months. My life has been very busy lately, but I've missed you guys so much I've had the urge to come back!
Although I'm happy to be back here, I'm not too happy to share with you guys the news.
My first budgie and bird ever, Rosco, just passed away in late October. He was without doubt my favorite budgie ever. I walked into my room to find him dead on the bottom of the cage.
He hadn't looked too well the day before, so I gave him a bath and spent a while massaging him until I figured out what to do next, but I didn't get a chance to decide. I'm not exactly sure what was wrong, and it hurts me to think that it might've been my fault.
Although he was a bit older when I got him, he spent a good five years with me. He loved to play and would willingly come to me when the others didn't. When I first saw him dead, I didn't want to believe it. I cried and cried and cried. He was my best friend. I loved him so much, but I'm glad he gets to fly free.
I will never forget my Rosco.
Another (odd) thing that has happened is I have just found out my Merlin is a girl! She layed some dud eggs a few months ago. So I've changed her name to Minnie. Haha!
