Default His last photoshoot

My supermodel boy. I'm so sorry. You took your last photoshoot today. RIP Geist.



I was in the middle of hand taming him, I had my hand in the cage just sitting there when something must have spooked him. Thinking back, perhaps it was the cat as she was lurking near by. But, what ever happened, while he was panicking, he squeezed out of the door in the tiny space between my arm and the wall of the cage.

And flew headfirst into the ceiling fan that was on. I watched and panicked as he hit the ground. I feared the worst when I ran over to where he fell by the tv. He was still alive, but barely. It seemed as though he was struggling to breath. It wasn't long before he passed.

I'm still trembling and in tears.

So sorry to hear. I, too, have lost a bird to an accident before and it's awful. Fly free little Geist.

Aw, the poor guy. Sorry to hear that. But listen, these things happen. We live and learn, so don't beat yourself up too much about it. My advice - get yourself an new budgie straight away, and maybe keep the cat in another room?

Thank you everybody. I'm still kind of shaken up. But I've managed to comfort myself by obsessively cleaning his cage and stuffing my face with pizza.

I am planning on getting another budgie. Hopefully I can find a breeder around my area. I was originally planning on getting him a buddy from a breeder but I guess that's not how it worked out.

Jennifer-- I just seen your thread. ; ; I'm sorry. *hug* They did look a lot alike.

Oh my gosh! Geist was such a cutie, and he loved that camera.
And what a traumatic way to lose a bird. I'm so sorry.

This is so sad, I am sorry to hear about your loss. Geist was such a sweet little guy.

RIP Geist... fly high and free.
