Default I still Love you Jo Jo...

It has been a little over a year now since my first budgie ever, Joey, passed away due to multiple illnesses. He was unfortunately under 2 years old. I've learned my lesson from buying budgie's from pet stores. I don't ever regret getting Jo Jo though, he brought smiles to my life even though he wasn't and never would be completely happy or healthy. We spent our short time jamming out to heavy rock everyday, forgetting about our troubles for a while. Eventually, we were forced to remember them and had to put him on medications with a syringe 4 times a day, which was a super stressful time for my poor baby. Finally came the day when he couldn't walk anymore, and medications would no longer help, so we took him off his medications and planned to get him humanely put down. Life was no longer worth the pain he was going through daily. He couldn't walk, couldn't barely sit up and always sat at the bottom of his cage with his eyes closed, shaking. Sadly, before we took him to be put down, nature took its course. One day when I woke up, I went to uncover his cage and saw him peacefully laying on the bottom, finally free for good from his troubles. I cried a lot, though I knew he was at the Rainbow Bridge, free from pain and discomfort. We buried him in a shoebox under the bird feeder outside with his favourite snuggly green bed, and a poem/letter written by me Thank-you to the generous help I recieved multiple times from Nikki Moustaki. You helped my prolong his life as long as possible, and make it as comfortable as possible too. Rest in Peace Jo Jo
"With Feathers as blue as the sky,
And Wings that can fly so high,
There is not a bird that's better,
Jo Jo, I will love you forever"

I would also like to add that Joey is flying high in the sun with his flock of new budgie friends, at the Rainbow Bridge. He'll forever be missed.

That's a lovely poem Gracie, did you write that? Thanks for telling us about Joey, I'm sorry you lost him so young, but I'm sure he loved you as much as you loved him, you will meet with him again someday.

RIP sweet Joey, fly high and free over the Rainbow Bridge with our special flock.

That's a beautiful poem, Gracie. They're so small, but when they leave us, they leave such a huge hole in our hearts. God bless you!!!
