After debating with my roommate about keeping my budgies (the noise was getting to her), we were able to compromise on me keeping only one. As a good friend of mine adopted Howard from me. She has had her budgie (a 5 year old they found) about a year, and she has been very lonely and still and quiet. Upon meeting her new boyfriend, Howard, a new life has been breathed into her. Howard is her junior by a few years, but you'd never know. I was so happy when I saw the picture of them together, I took it to Office Max and had it printed as a poster which now hangs on my wall.

That same day I got a call from my friend who generously adopted the ill and injured budgie, Pocket, I rescued from the pet store. She said Pocket had passed sometime in the night. She found her somewhat contorted in the corner, so it is likely she got her one functional leg caught and couldn't get unstuck because she was weak and her other leg was broken. It doesn't appear there was much of a struggle though, as she had slid into a sharp decline in the last week. I think she is in a better place now, as no amount of pain medications can cure a flightless, broken, and abused bird. We did what we could to make her comfortable, but it's still sad she's gone.

She was my first bird, after all.

But on a happier note, now that it's just Laufey and me. The last few days have seen tremendous strides in our relationship. It is so comforting to finally see progress after weeks of waiting and interaction to little or no avail. I finally think he sees me as a friend, and I greatly look forward to our time together.

I wish you and your new girlfriend well, Howard. I'll keep in touch!
And fly free dear Pocket. I know your life was painful and unfairly shortened due to man's negligence and ignorance, but you were loved by many others. Because of you, I have Laufey, of whom I am so grateful. You opened the door to a new life for me, and given me meaning and hope. I will see you again someday, my sweet. I love you.

Howard and his new gal friend.


Pocket, in all her radiance.


Laufey and me today =)

Hi Kate, that's a lovely picture of you and Laufey, and Howard looks very settled in his new home

So sad to hear about Pocket though

RIP sweet little Pocket, fly high over the Rainbow Bridge free from pain and healthy once more.

It's good to see Howard settling in with his new friend. And that is a lovely picture of you and Laufey.

I am so sorry to hear about Pocket. I'm sure the time she had was a loving one.
Rest in peace little Pocket.

Wow. It's been a month of rehoming and
reorganizing households for some of us here
on TB. I didn't know that you were going to
be one of us, but you've worked things out
well for everyone. Howard certainly looks to
be in love. I know Pocket's transition was
unexpected, but she has taken her knowledge
of what it is to be loved to The Bridge with her
and is now flying free. Your dear Laufey looks
so happy just to be with you. I know such
transitions are hard to get through, but it sounds
as though things have worked out just beautifully
all around to you all.
