The rescue budgie I took in less than 2 weeks ago didn't make it.
Yesterday afternoon she kept vomiting and she could no longer hold any food/fluids down. Today she had what I think was a seizure at the bottom of her cage. She was so weak but even at the very end managed to pull herself back off of the ground and up onto her perch
It was horrific
seeing her deteriorate this afternoon and I still find it hard to comprehend that she's gone. I keep trying to think of things I could've done differently, that maybe if I'd done other things she'd still be here... but I know that's not helpful or good to think of. She was already so sick when I first got her from my vet nurse 'friend' so maybe it was already too late.
Budgie was about 2yrs old (as guessed by my avian vet) so I hope very much that during her time she had a good life and some good memories. I feel bad that she didn't have a good time with me. Being in a new place and being given different medications twice a day must've been hard. She didn't like being grabbed but I guess it was all done with the intention of saving and giving her a better life.
I only had about a week and half or so with her and yet she had such an impact on me.
She had such a strong fighting spirit and she fought amazingly hard against this for as long as she could.
I'm sorry I couldn't save you and that I never gave you a proper name
You really touched my heart and I hope you've found the peace you deserve darling Budgie xxx
