Default Sunny

This is kind of a long story, and a sad one, but I thought I'd share it.

A little over a week ago, my young daughter's cat accidentally got out and onto the road and was hit by a car. He had truly been her best friend, and it was devastating news for her. We talked about death and grief and how it was ok to be upset and to miss him and how she had taken such good care of Jasper and he had been a lucky cat to have an owner like her. I'm not one to replace pets as though they're toys, but my daughter had helped me with my budgies for a while and when she asked if she could get one I was happy to take her to pick one out.

A week ago today she picked out a little yellow female at the pet store and named her Sunny. She was active and inquisitive and friendly, and within a few days she was sitting on our finger and letting us pet her gently. She was really an exceptional little bird, I couldn't get over how sweet she was. I was the one taking care of Sunny of course, but my daughter was so happy with her new friend and it looked like they were going to be a great match. Well, a few hours ago I went to check on her and she was sitting on the bottom of the cage, feathers fluffed. Within an hour she was gone. My daughter is sleeping upstairs and still has no idea, and I just don't know how I'm going to tell her.

It's heartbreaking to lose such a sweet little bird, and to know how much my daughter will miss her too. Rest peacefully Sunny, you were loved very much.

Sorry to hear about the death of two pets. I know how my daughter cried after her cat died earlier this year.

So very sorry to hear about Jasper and sweet Sunny, I cant imagine how you must be feeling losing two much loved pets so close together

I hope your daughter is OK

Rest in Peace, sweet beautiful Sunny and cuddly Jasper. Nature has her reasons, and sometimes it doesn't seem fair. Hugs to you and your daughter. This is so sad.

I just read about this in your other thread. I'm sorry to hear that. Not sure what could have caused her to pass already. Maybe the pet store she was kept at wasn't as careful at keeping an eye on her health as they should have been. Birds hide their illnesses well. I hope you have better luck with your little guy you also just bought.

Oh dear... I am so sorry... It's hard to explain such things to kids. I hope things get better for you both.

Thank you for all of the kind comments, I really appreciate it. My daughter was pretty upset, understandably. Sunny was only in our lives for a week, but she was already very attached to her, and wanted to know what she did to make her die. Of course I've explained that she didn't do anything wrong and that these things just happen. Thanks again for all of the kind words and support, it really means a lot.
