Lightbulb What helped me through a tough time

When I lost my kitten very suddenly to Feline Leukemia 3 years ago, I was devastated. I hand reared that cat when he was abandoned by his mother and nursed him back to health from the brink of death, only to lose him 11 months later. After we had to put him down, the vet sent me a beautiful card with a lock of his hair and a his stamped paw prints on it, and inside the card there was a beautiful poem. I'm sure some of you are familiar with this particular poem, as it is quite popular, but it really moved me and helped me get through the grief. It read:

"Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears,
But laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you.
I loved you so-
'Twas Heaven here with you."
---Isla Paschal Richardson

I hope maybe reading this will help somebody who is mourning the loss of a budgie or other pet like it helped me.

Justine,
That is a beautiful sentiment and it was very sweet of you to share it with everyone.

How beautiful that is, and what a kind person your vet is to send it to you. I am sorry you had to lose your kitty. We always miss them no matter how long its been since losing them.

My deepest sympathy! I know how you felt, we recently lost our belovedpet bird. He is an Australian Barraband, he made us laugh all time he loves to talk funny. 3 weeks ago I noticed that he was sleeping alot we just thought that he was just tired. We took him to an aviary vet and gave him an antibiotics, but he passed away 2days later. My husband called me at work crying and told me the bad news that our Rexie is dead, and he died while my husband was holding him. I came home from work and my husband still holding our beloved Rexie and husband was still crying. I never saw him cried that hard. Losing our pet is like losing a family member, they are irreplaceable. All we can do is to just hang in there, remember the fun memories of our beloved pet. Your beloved kitty knows that you have loved him unconditionally.

mamu7991, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your dear bird. With it being so recent I'm sure things are still very hard for you and your husband. My husband acted the same way when our beloved kitty passed; he wrapped his body up in his favorite blanket right before we buried him and said he needed to be alone with him for a minute and then took him in the garage. I wasn't trying to eavesdrop but I could hear him in there sobbing and he was telling him how much he loved him and saying goodbye. I had seen him cry before, but never like that. The whole thing was 1 of the hardest things I've ever been through. I think of my pets like they are my children,because animals are equal family members. What I can tell you is that each day will get a little easier, and when you are sad, remind yourself how lucky you were to have that bird in your life and be thankful for all the laughter and warm memories he provided you with, and that he is in a better place waiting to see you again.
