Default RIP Bogey I will miss you so much

Yesterday I lost my first and only budgie Bogey. She was with us for nearly 10 years. I was never able to tame her, and she was fearful..but I loved her very much. She got sick very suddenly with a messy vent, so I took her to the vet. I was afraid of taking her because I knew it would stress her out, she never liked being handled. And I don't know if that contributed to it, but hours after we got her home I watched as she became even weaker..crawled to the bottom of the cage on her belly and passed away. I struggle with the guilt that I feel for taking her, I pray the vet visit did not harm her - hopefully it was just her time and there was nothing more I could do.

I wish your last day could have been less stressful Bogey. I will miss you sticking the bell on top of your head like a hat, and climbing up your ladder at night when I turn the lights off. Night night I love you Bogey...

I'm sorry for your loss of little Bogey. Please don't blame yourself for taking her to the vet. You were doing what you thought would be best for her. Since she was almost 10 years old, she had a long and happy life for a little budgie and I'm sure she knew that you loved and cherished her.

May time bring you Peace and your happy memories of Bogey bring you Joy!

Fly high and free sweet Bogey, rest peacefully at the Rainbow Bridge.

So sorry for your loss.

I'm absolutely sure it was her time, and you did the right thing to take her to the vet. 10 years is a great age. Even though she was shy you let her be herself and loved her for it. She must have been happy to live so long.

Rip Bogey.

Default So sorry for you loss..Can we see photo of him?

I knows its a tough call..vet or not vet..

I had a young yellow nape that started going downhill..and I still wonder if Aries wou;d have survived if I kept him home..But 10 years is a good life for a domestic budgie & I really think it had nothing to do with it...

Sounds like he had a great life with you..

I've lost 3 budgies in my lifetime..Still think of them and remember them.

Will you get another once grieving is over?
Andria

Rest in Peace, sweet little Bogey. Keep her cute face and happy song close to your heart, and she will be with you forever. Hugs to you.

You were being a good mom for little Bogey Don't blame yourself, and either way the what if's, if only's, I shoulda will get the best of us either way.....vet or no vet. You followed your heart. He lived a long life and felt your love and showed you his by entertaining you the way he did. I know you will always remember and cherish the times you had with Bogey. He will live on in your heart. Prayers going your way to find comfort in your time of loss.

Thank you guys so much for your kindness. It was hard to decide to take her to the vet, because if I didn't she may have passed anyway, and then I'd feel guilty for not taking her. I felt better right after the vet visit, thought she would pull through as I've treated her before when she was sick. But then I saw her climb to the bottom, it was so heartbreaking and will take me a while to come to terms with.

I think May is a bad month for me. A few years ago on Memorial Day, I lost my dog I had for nearly 17 years..another time I came home from college to find that my goldfish of 10+ years had passed, and now my sweet Bogey...all the same time of year.

I probably will get another budgie sometime. But I will miss little Bogey so much. She was the first bird I've ever had and even though she wasnt tame, I really loved her. I hope she is in a better place now and can fly free without worry.

You absolutely did the right thing, and I know Bogey felt your love even if she didn't want to go to the vet. It was just her time. I know that doesn't make it any easier, though

RIP sweet Bogey. You are loved and missed.
