tweetienchirp will become famous soon enough
Default My beautiful Chirp is gone....

Last night my roommates cat somehow got into my room and killed poor Chirp.
I can't even believe that he is gone or that he died in such a horrible way. At least it was quick, I think.

He was such a sweet bird, and was Tweetie's mate. They were so happy together! Fortunately, I don't think that Tweetie or the other 2 birds saw this happen, as they did not seem at all traumatized. I just can't believe my little Chirp is gone. I loved him so much! I couldn't imagine it would be this painful to lose a pet. I feel terrible that I wasn't more careful--the door sticks and I guess it didn't close all the way when I went to the kitchen to get the birds fresh water. The cat usually never goes in my room, but I guess she heard the birds and pushed her way in. I feel so terrible that I might have been able to prevent this. I have always been so careful in every way to make sure that my babies are safe and happy and healthy. I wish I could go back in time and change things--to close that door properly this time so my little Chirp could still be safe and happy and alive with his Tweetie and me.

What can I do to help Tweetie? It happened late last night and Tweetie hadn't seemed to notice when I put her to bed. I put some extra mirrors (which she loves) and toys in the cage to keep her occupied. There are 2 other newer birds in with her too, but she hasn't yet showed much interest in them. She only had eyes for Chirp! i would like to get a new bird at some point to have an even number, but perhaps I should wait? Also, should I try to get an older bird since Tweetie is about a year old and Chirp was just a bit older than her? I am not sure of the age of the other 2, but 1 of them is quite young and the other a bit older, but neither of their ceres have changed color yet, so I don't know their sex. I would like to get another potential mate for Tweetie, but maybe she would choose one of the other 2 birds if I gave it some time to see what happens? I just don't want one of the birds to feel left out if 2 of the others are mates....

Please help. I am so devastated that my beautiful Chirp is gone--so happy and full of life he was. He had just got in all his grown up feathers and lost his stripes on his head and should have had a long full life with Tweetie. We buried him in the garden in a little velvet lined box. I can't believe I won't wake up to his lively song again....

I am so sorry to read this. I can imagine just how you do feel and sympathise greatly. It is my biggest fear for my budgie, because my sister has a cat. The dogs pretty much ignore him, even when he's just chilling on my desk or shoulder and takes an unscheduled flight and they happen to be inside (my sons dog is a little red cattle dog and she's quite old, so we do pamper her). I am terrified that on my checks for the cat, that he WILL one day be out, where I don't see him and I get my little bloke out.

Anyhow, the dogs dont care for birds ... but the cat cant help himself - it's what they are born to do, after all. Don't beat yourself up - stuff sometimes happens. I think it would have been really quick, which doesn't probably help you feel all that better - but it is a small consolation in an otherwise terrible scenario.

I'd let your female budgie be - and not offer her a replacement mate just yet. Let her settle to life without Chirp and observe her. She will show signs of distress if she is in need of a buddy. Maybe you could handle her a bit more and just see how she goes?

Default Thanks everyone....

Thanks everyone for the support. I have never been so attached to an animal as I am to these birds! I just love them so much...I don't know why....

I am still crying every day about my little Chirp and how his life was ended far too soon. But I got Tweetie a special new swing with a mirror attached and she has hardly left it since i put it in the cage. She is quieter, and I know she misses him, but she perks up when I talk to her and she sings to me a little. She doesn't like to be handled but she does seem to be cheered up by my talking to her. She also got pretty happy today after I gave her some millet spray and even played with one of the other birds a little, which gives me some hope as she previously ignored them! I also hang foods that I want them to eat from the ceiling and today she went crazy (just like her old self) attacking a chamomile teabag and a piece of cucmumber. I also played music all day when I was out because it was so quiet without Chirp!

Even though I miss Chirp like crazy and am so sad when I think about his lifeless little body, I am at least happy that Tweetie does not seem too bad. She is good natured and playful and it looks like she may bounce back pretty quickly....

I am going to try to post some pictures of Tweetie and Chirp together. Chirpy is the blue one.....
