I'm very sorry to hear Bert is in such poor health.
His quality of life has deteriorated tremendously and I'm sure he must be suffering.
The fact you've had him for 15 wonderful years is a testament to the love and care you've given him.
Having a little towel, platform perch or the hut you mentioned on the bottom of his cage at this point is fine. Be sure his food and water are easily accessible for him.
As difficult as it is, the best decision you could make would be to allow the vet to help him move on in his journey to the Rainbow Bridge.
I certainly know how hard it is -- I've had to let many of my beloved pets go over the years.
However, I truly believe it is the greatest act of selfless love one can give.
When a pet has reached the point where it is in constant pain and the quality of life is never going to improve, it is cruel to allow it to continue to suffer.
If you'd like, feel free to send me a Private Message and we can communicate more without our conversations being part of the public forum.
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
