Hi everyone words can't express the pain I feel and never thought it would be possible to be so attached to a little bird. In a horrible horrible accident our little man got trodden in tonight by my partner. We got our little Kobe only a year ago and he was such a beautiful funny little character he was hand raised as a baby and he was just such a big part of our life. Kobe loved playing with his balls and toys on the ground he was allowed out regularly to run around as he just loved it I was always conscious of him around my feet and I just don't know how this could have happened. I was out at the shops and got the call it was instant no suffering. We buried him tonight in a little box. I know this sounds silly but my partner is that guilt and grief stricken I don't know what to do he was like a little son to him followed him everywhere every morning said hello dad was always so excited when he came home. I went to a animal shelter opening today and was already sad at the poor animals there and came home and said to Kobe ur lucky ur so spoilt and loved then I went out and now this has happened I feel absolutely gutted and I honestly don't know how to cope with the loss of him.
Thank u rocky Kobe looked just like the blue bird in your profile picture I'm not sure how to put up pictures I only have them on my phone, I'm 30 years old and I have me never had to face such grief for an animal he was my first pet out of childhood and just made my day every day i just can't imagine my life without him and can't ever imagine having another budgie that would do the little things he did he used to even fly in our bedroom in the mornings and just sleep on my chest I just feel so helpless and empty..
I know how you feel. backin 1989, just after I got married, I bought two budgies, Arnold and Liberty, Arnold died a couple of weeks later but Liberty , well, Liberty took over my heart. I went to Florida in December of 1989 and left Liberty with my parents who were not Bird lovers, I never got her back. They fell in love with Libertys charm and loved her like another daughter until she passed in 1994 from a tumor. I will never forget Liberty who made me fall in love with the charm of budgies. She was the Budgie of Budgies and then Rocky came into my life, but that is a whole other story.
Sorry for hijacking your thread, I just wanted to talk about Liberty.
Do you have a Flicker or Webshots album with pics of Kobe? You can post the link to the Budgies pic section if you do
I am so sorry about this awful accident. I can only imagine what this must feel like; just devastating. My heart breaks for you and your partner. It is obvious you both had a special bond with your little Kobe.
Please know that we are here to support you, and hopefully provide comfort during this difficult time.
Thank you rocky I can def say I understand how you feel it's 3am had two hours sleep and now tears again and feel so sick. And now I feel guilty because I can't even look at my partner cause I'm so angry that it happened which makes me feel worse cause he has guilt to do with and grief and I should b there for him I'm sure the anger will pass. Thank u everyone for ur kind words just knowing that others understand gives some sense of comfort. Reading all your lovely stories I know every little budgie has a character and Rocky from your story I hope in time and the right time one little guy will come back into my life. I'm just so upset that he was so young healthy and active and had so many years of bringing us joy with his antics i just feel so miserable.
