Unhappy RIP baby George

Hi everyone,

My gorgeous baby George died last night. He didn't even seem sick in the afternoon. I noticed him sitting on the bottom of his cage and when I put my hand in he didn't hop onto my finger. I took him the animal emergency centre but when I arrived I opened his box and he had passed away on the trip.

I am completely heartbroken. I was besotted with him. I though he'd be with us for ten years not 9 short months. I can't stop crying. I wonder what if I had found him 30 minutes before then we would have made it to the vet in time. Then I think maybe I shouldn't have put him in a box, i should have just cuddled him so he didn't die on his own.

My mother in law thinks I should get a another bird, after telling her I kept thinking I could hear him last night. I don't know. I feel that I wouldn't love this bird, I would just wish he was George.

We buried him in my in laws rose garden this morning wrapped in a pretty red ribbon. Tomorrow I'm going to get a stone from the quarry and a small plaque to place in the garden with his name on it.

Thank you for reading this. I've had a lot of it's just a bird but I have cried more these last 12 hours than I have when relatives have passed away. If anyone has any tips on how to cope and move on I would greatly appreciate it.

RIP my sweet baby George xoxo

Misty

I am so sorry! Rip baby George! I am sorry you had to pass so young, but please know that your dear Misty tried her best, and did everything she could. She doesn't know what you died of, but she misses you a lot. Just know that you will one day see her again. And that she loves you and always will!

I highly suggest getting a new bird when you feel when the right time has come...it has fir sure helped me! My dear Drini died in my own hands, and I sat there hugging him for hours while crying. I did everything I could, took him to the vet, fed him medications every day, kept him in a warm hospital cage. Then I heard him jumping around in his cage blindly, he even got his head soaked, then when I finally caught him, he took a few deep breaths and went limp. Next day, I was so depressed. I couldn't even go home, I didn't want to. I never wanted to go there again. I cried for days, and I still do. I even hugthis Drini pillow that has my drawing of him on it. Then two months later of moping around, I was blessed with Ulken and Sky. I felt better at once, and I feel like Drini lives on in Sky. Trust me, it helps a lot.

Try doing things that you love. Don't try and forget him, but try and keep him tucked in your mind for a while, and then you can bring him out again when you feel ready. That's all I can say at the moment!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It was far too soon for George to go on, but no matter the time we have with them, it is never enough. I can understand your heartache. Little budgies work their way deep into our hearts and we are never the same. George was a lucky little budgie to be loved so deeply and cared for so well. George loved you as well, you know he did. And he will be waiting for you with that ever-growing flock of our friends at The Bridge.

I agree with getting another bird. It would be a tribute to George to share the love he showed you with another bird who needs you, and it would honor him to open your home and your heart to another little bird who needs love. You'll now when the time is right, but please think about it. Once you've shared your home with a budgie, it never seems quite right without one.

to you and your family tonight.

Rest in Peace, sweet little George. You left us much too soon. Misty, when you are ready, you will open your heart to another little budgie. George would want you to share your love and good care with another friend. He wouldn't want you to be sad.

I don't visit these type of threads very often, but today a lost a baby as well. Stop blaming yourself for his death. The problem with these little buggers is that you don't usually see when they are ill and when you do it is usually too late.

Misty,

It is because of Love we Grieve
and
Because of Love we are also comforted
in our Sorrow

In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort.

Fly high and free little Georgie! Rest peacefully wee one.

I agree with the others that when the time is right, you might open your heart to another little budgie as a loving tribute to little Georgie. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

People don't know....they are NOT JUST A BIRD! They are a part of the family and it DOES hurt tremendously, whether it's just a few days, weeks, months or years! They have our heart, tame or not, their chirping and the antics of their personalities are so loved. So sorry for your loss. You will know when the time is right to get another bird and being who you are, you will love the next baby like you've loved George. Everything in due time. God Bless you.

Thank you everyone for your kind words.

It's been a few days now and the tears come less often. I'm starting to get used to not seeing his cage, but i'm still terribly sad.

George was the greatest little bird. And noisy! His favourite things were tapping his beak on his water container or dragging his mirror away then letting it go and bang against the side of his cage. His favourite toy was his rope toy which he slept with it over his back and shook it around like a dog while dancing.

his favourite place in the house was his perch made from a coat hanger and chop stick hanging from the roof where he could look down over everything. He would sit up there and sing, wolf whistle and smooch to himself. The house seems so quiet now.

I will post a picture next week once we get his brass plaque back to go in the garden with with him.
