There is a quote that I would love to share with you."Grief is so painfully real, regardless of its origin. The love of, and attachment to, an animal friend can equal that of human relationships. Likewise, the loss of an animal can be just as devastating."
~Rev. Joel L. Morgan
I agree totally with that quote. It is so true about grief being so painfully real. I feel like it will never end with each and every new day, without my parrot. My heart feels for the lost of Hudeany. We once share a vary special bond together that had left a big empty hole within side of me, after his passing. I don't think I could ever be the same after losing such a special friend. I keep waking up wishing that it was just a dream but it's not. My beloved big boy is really gone. It hurts so much and so hard at times that I cry my eyes out at times. Right now to move on, not seeing nor hearing him after his death is so vary hard to except. Early mornings just as the sun rises and evenings before the sun disappeared behind the tall trees is when you usually heard him the most. There is always those memorable things that would trigger a reminder of our days together. It's like every where’s that I look now, around my bedroom is something that reminds me of him. That it would make me weep like crazy with tears over flowing down my face like a river, non stop. Oh Hudeany, if only you knew just how much you meant to me.
I left his cage just the way it was before his passing. His food and water is still there and untouched. His clean bedding hasn't been removed. Nor have I taken his favourite blanket from off his cage. There in front of my window is where I left his cage. Hudeany use to just love looking out the window and seeing the wild birds outside, feeding from off the ground. Whenever he seen a stray cat you always knew it because he would let out a big, long screech until the cat left or ran off to avoid the dreadful noise from my parrot. Hudeany had always hated cats. I will miss him dearly. He was truly one of a kind, nothing or no animal could ever replace him.
After making such a hard decision to have him put down due to the arthritis in his both legs by our local veterinary’s, he slipped into a deep sleep February the 14th. He had left foots print behind in my heart and all the wonderful times that we both shared together. Today I'm still grieving as if he had died yesterday. Oh Hudeany, I will always remember and love you as if you have never left.
