Goodbye Sunny, I Will Miss You
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 08:14 PM by Beetwasher
She was a 2 1/2 year old parakeet and I loved her. I hope, I know, I gave her a happy life but she died, way too young, from a renal tumor. You feel so helpless, there's nothing you can do. I hope her passing was not too painful. I decided to leave her at home in comfortable, familar surroundings w/ her mate Blue, as opposed to having her put down. She had pain medication which I hope helped ease her passing.

She had a sweet song. She was sweet, and tame and loving. She'd nibble my ear and play w/ my earring. She'd preen my hair and my beard. She'd chew on the blinds and hang upside down. She let me hold her close and pet her. She was so pure and loving.

Goodbye Sunny. You were a pure light in this world and I will miss you and always remember the warmth you brought to my life. I hope I brought it to yours as well.

1. Sorry about Sunny.
I know it is hard to lose a fur-child or in Sunny's case a feather-child. She sounds like a sweety. I have a feeling you did the right thing for her in loving her and in letting her be surrounded by what she loved when she went. Hang in there and remember she will always live on with in you. :hug:

2. I am so sorry for your loss.
Pets give us so much love and ask so little in return. I hope your memories of Sunny will ease the pain you feel today.

5. I had a sweet little 'keet once.
He was so affectionate and would fly to you when you called his name. The pet sitter let him out with the window open while I was on vacation and couldn't get him back inside :(

So sorry for your loss. I am going through the same.

And he's been standing at the usual spot where they would preen eachother, waiting for her I suppose...

Thanks again to everyone for your thoughts...

13. Oh, so sorry for you and Blue
Pets leave prints on our hearts, no matter whether they have paws or claws. Hope in time, things get easier. :hug:

Good to hear she had pain medication to help ease it and that she had a very good home while on Earth.
