Default RIP Andy

I am heartbroken and devastated. Three weeks ago my boyfriend and I brought home two lovely birds... We named them Andy and Sammy. We called them our children and did everything we could to bond with them, to the point that up until yesterday after only three weeks they had grown to trust us enough to fly to us when we called them and perch on our shoulders and arms and the tops of our heads. Today I came home from work and found Andy dead on the bottom of his cage. I feel wracked with guilt, wondering what we did wrong, torn with worry that whatever happened to Andy will happen to Sammy next, and so sorry for Sammy that his friend is suddenly gone... even last night they were asleep together, snuggled up together in their bed.

A week ago we took them both to the vet for their first check up and got every single one of the tests the avian vet we saw recommended that we have done. All of the tests came back negative and they were given a clean bill of health. I just... don't know what happened, and my heart is hurting. I didn't know I could become so attached to a bird, for crying out loud. I'd had many pets growing up, but never birds. I really began to fall hard for these two, and now Andy is gone.

I think there may have been signs. I think Andy was stressed out and he had a more difficult time adjusting to his new home than Sammy did. Sammy is a real trooper and doesn't get phased by much, but Andy was always much more shy and more slow to come along. I really thought he was coming along though. But I knew he was stressed out sometimes because his feathers would be fluffed up. I think it is possible that that, combined with a drastic temperature change today may have contributed to his death. When I came home today it was very hot in the house and it was much cooler yesterday. It was very cold out today and someone else that we live with turned the heat way, way up today without realizing that it could be stressful for the birds. I don't know. I am just trying to make sense of this, how three days ago I heard from my vet that my lovely birds are healthy and now one is gone...

I just really need some comfort and some advice and some wisdom, because this can't happen again. I want Sammy to live a long, wonderful life with us...

I am so sorry to hear about Andy. Many of us have lost one of our little ones so we know the pain all too well. Sometimes it happens with no warning. I lost one that way. No apparent illness or injury.
They are fragile little things. Just do your best and love them.

This is a sad event but I'm glad you joined us. We all help each other the best we can.

Fly high and free little Andy.

Hi I am so very sorry to hear that you lost Andy, especially after he was given a clean health check from your vet, please don't blame yourself, you did everything you possibly could for Andy, sometimes everything is not enough

Its very easy to become attached to our little friends, they are so sweet and funny and they creep into out hearts and lives before you even know it!

RIP little Andy, all of our little ones will welcome you to the Rainbow Bridge.

Rest in Peace, sweet little Andy. Keep his cute face and happy song close to your hearty, and he will be with you forever. They leave us much too soon, but Nature has her reasons. You gave him lots of love. That's what he needed most. I am so sorry for your loss.
