I am so sorry to have lost my SweetPea, his passing has has left a huge hole in my heart that will always be there...Love you li'l boy, miss you always.
I will never forgive myself for what happened to you. I am so sorry.
Thank you all...This is how he died...I took him in for a beak trim as I did normally about every 3-4 months. The owner of the store I got him from usually always did this, and she was quick and efficient, never a problem. Well, this time she was gone, and there was a girl (monster) working. I told her what I needed, and she proceeded to grab him from his travel cage, where I stopped her, and got him out myself, and my doubts grew. I should have turned around and walked out of the store. But she quickly clipped his beak and started to file...and file...and file... I told her three times to give him to me, that it was enough. (I had also prewarned her that he was a "fainter") She acted like she didn't hear me. Finally I reached to grab him away and she finally backed off a little and handed him to me....dead. I am so angry with myself, and so heartbroken, but even more angry at her. After this happened, my husband started getting angry and told her she was responsible- they argued that point- she tried blaming me (what?) at which point my husband had had enough. I was hysterical, and he was trying to point me out the door, and as we went, she started flipping us off with both hands, said the big F*** you, over ten times (yes, we counted) and told us to never come back to the store or she would call the police...
Nice way to be treated by an inept employee who just killed my precious little bird...it makes it all so much worse, and I am devastated.
The owner just got back from vacation, and we are going in to see her tomorrow and try to do what we can to make her see what happened. Nothing will replace SweetPea and I feel so guilty for even taking him in. I want this woman to lose her job... How I wish I hadn't ever let her touch him.
Sorry to ramble on...I miss my boy more each day.
