Default RIP Bubbles



Back in January, everything was just like it always is on a Sunday. I got up a little later than normal, finally quit being lazy and went to put out the morning mash mix for my budgies. Bubbles was just like she always was, ready and eager to come over and see if I had any millet for her and get some breakfast. She was always the first on the food bowl and hopped down there eagerly like always.

Two hours later, I came back into the room to vacuum, looked up at their usual sleeping spot to only see her blue boy Clu and found her on the bottom of the cage. She even still had mash mess still on her face. Right below their usual nap and sleep perch. She had obviously been gone for a little while, too. I'm still not sure what happened between coming to eat breakfast and when I went up to clean. There wasn't an injury. She hadn't been any fluffier than she always was. She came over to the side perch, eager for millet when I walked in.

I'll miss her though. She never, ever bit and was more interested in me and millet (or probably more likely- me AS millet) than she was in Clu. He got bossed around a lot and didn't get much loving after the first few weeks we had them both. But he's been depressed ever since. Too afraid to leave the back perches. Won't touch anything but seed. Panics if someone even gets too close to the cage. She was my fat little puff ball and only just a year old.

I'm so sorry for your loss of little Bubbles.

Poor wee Clu is going to need lots of extra love and attention to get through his mourning period.
If you are thinking about getting him a little friend and choose a male, Clu won't be as likely to be bossed around.

Rest in Peace sweet Bubbles - Fly high and free little girl!

I'm so sorry about Bubbles. It must have been such a shock, her leaving that way. What you describe had to be so sudden even she didn't feel it coming. Birds who are eating and enjoying a little after-brunch preen and nap are not sick birds. Whatever it was you certainly could not have prevented it. You and Clu will need to spend much time consoling each other over her sudden loss.
I send you both much sympathy and many hugs

Thank you. It was very sudden. My only guess would be poor breeding, since she was a pet store bird. I had wanted to get a breeder baby, but saw her in the store and she was just too adorable. I got Clu because they were attached at the hip in the cage. She never could fly very well, though, and never came into breeding season while everyone else did. No way to be sure.
