My little boy Tino was about a fortnight ago diagnosed with a bad tumour of the internal organs. I kept him at home for the past 2 weeks and made him as comfortable as possible. He put up a spirited fight for life but it became pretty obvious in the last 24 hours that he was in constant pain so we made the decision tonight with the agreement of the avian vet to have him euthanized. Within an instant he was free of all his pain.
He was a sweet little boy, about 4 years old, and packed a few adventures into his life such as getting outdoors but coming back, and riding on an overnight ferry when we moved states.
He is survived by his bonded mate Bella who is saddened by his loss.
Rest in Peace my sweet little birdie.
Here's some of my favourite pics of him.

Rest in Peace, dear sweet Tino. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your heart, and he will be with you forever. You have wonderful photos to remember the good times you shared. They leave us much too soon. Hugs to you and Bella.
