I had my bird blue since November 18 th 2014, he was very shy but so sweet. Every single day I just went up to his cage, talked to him and tried to hold him. Blue was however very stubborn for a while, eventually he opened up to me and let me hold him. For the longest time I would go back and forth talking to him, he would just scream it was the cutest thing ever. I loved how he would just fly to my head some days he helped me a lot with my depression, and on Febraury 12th 2015 I found out at my Fiance's place that my bird passed away. I cried so hard it was unreal honestly I was like "are you kidding?" I took it very hard I didn't want to talk to anyone I blamed myself because I couldn't afford a Vet for my bird. A few days later I came back home and just saw my bird Blue lying lifeless in his bird bath. I cried really hard and said "Blue i'm sorry that I wasn't there, i'm a bad mother. Mama's sorry for leaving you, I will will always love you baby boy" I still take it hard. I just miss holding him I am thankful that I got to, take pictures with my parakeet.

You are not alone

You are not alone in feeling terrible about pet loss. It shows how much you cared and loved your bird. I just lost my cat to illness two days ago, and I am trying to cope with my grief, anger, guilt, etc., etc. Scouring through the web trying read anything about pet loss helped, and I stumble onto this site.

It's okay to cry your eyes out. Hang in there. Talk to someone who shared the same experience. Be gentle to yourself.

Emma I am so sorry for your loss of your parakeet blue. I can echo how you feel and the pain and loss of a bird.
One day my daughter walked in with 2 cockatiels. Her brother talked her into having as he had an African Grey. Well my husband wasn't too happy.
That bird became four and then four babies were born and we ended up with 11 cockatiels. this was the best experience of my life looking after them. WE also had 2 lovebirds and soon found out they could not be kept in the same cage. One of the lovebirds ended up with an infected eye and went blind. I cried as he tried to climb the cage and kept falling down. I picked him out of the cage, and cupped him in my hands and he died. I cried so hard I was so heartbroken.
WE had 2 fly out of the cage. I cried my heart out also at this time. Each bird had a different personality and lovely to see. The father of the four babies started plucking the feathers of the babies and his way of killing them. I ended up having to give them up to an Aviary to nurse my husband dying of terminal cancer. But I have such fond memories of these birds and will always have these fond memories. I now have a garden full of birds and feed them and I love them all so much.
When my husband was dying of cancer we had a white fan tailed bird come and sit on our fence and stayed with us for 4 1/2 years for the whole of the 3yrs.39days cancer journey and 1 1/2 years after my husband died. What bird would come each day to our garden and feed and comfort and stay with us. That was our ANGEL. I am sorry for your loss. But I understand the loss and pain of losing birds. time is a healer and you will recover from your grief.

HI Emma, My heart aches for you. It doesn't matter what kind of animal we have for a pet, they always steal our heart. We spoil them, feed them, love them. We get to know their personality. And all they want is our love. They become a part of the family, very dear to our hearts. When they leave us its like losing a family member, someone we love very much. It will take time, but take one day at a time. Your sadness will lessen and the heartache will lighten, but you will always miss him. He will always be a part of you. Remember him always and the joy he brought. Remember all the good times, not the sad. God Bless you.
