I don't post on here very often, but for those of you that are familiar with me, I used to own a budgie, Mochi, who turned out to be sick since the day I bought her. I'm sad to say that she passed away a few days ago. For awhile, Mochi looked like she was on the road to recovery, but it seems like in the end, she finally gave up.
I recently relocated to Shanghai (I bought her in another city in China). I managed to bring both my budgies with me to my new place, but after two days, I woke up one morning to find Mochi lifeless at the bottom of the cage. I'm not sure if I can attribute it to the stress of moving, the change of environment, or a combination of things. Either way, I've tried for so long to keep her alive, and I keep thinking whether there were other things I could've done.
I would like to thank everybody who's helped me and given me advice about her in the past few months.
I remember Mochi and you too, Klystomane. Sorry to hear about this passing. Mochi had came a long way to survive a losing battle. You did everything under the world to keep Mochi comfortable and I knew for a fact that you took good care in utmost diligence.
RIP Mochi. Fly high and fly free to wherever you wish.
Cutie Pie, Olive, Budgie, Baby Boy, Star, Pepper, Ariel, Oscar, Charlie, Little One, Chiclet.
Cutie Pie, Olive, Ariel, Little One and Chiclet are children of Budgie and Oscar.
Budgie and Star left us in 2009. Pepper and Oscar left us this year, 2010. 2018 and all are gone. Ariel and Cutie Pie died this Feb and March. Both over 11 years old.
A good day is a day all your birds are happy and healthy.
Losing a little friend like Mochi is heartbreaking at the best of times, but being Christmas time makes it even worse I feel.
Rest in peace little Mochi.

Thank you all for your support. Back in Dalian (the city I moved from), bird enthusiasts were non-existent, so having all of your support has meant a lot to me. When the time is right, I will find another companion for Buddy, my two year old budgie.
