RIP Baby. You were one of the best cockatoos I'll ever know and love. I can't believe you're gone; you made everyone in our family's lives more complete. Persey, Max, Peaches, and Fritz have lost one of their best fine feathered friends and are singing to you right now. I'm happy that we were able to rescue you and give you an additional eight years of life that I'll never forget. Fly well Baby, "It's Ok, Night Night to Baby"

I'm not sure yet. When we rescued her she had a hole burnt through her crop by the previous owners feeding her baby food while it was boiling. She has always had complications from that over the years.

My mom's veterinarian friend believes it may have been a heart attack. I'm scared that my other birds may et sick so I 'm taking them to the avian vet today for a check up. I've been crying my eyes out all morning. The memories of my cockatiels dying while I was away as a kid are coming flooding back now too. It's unbearable. I'm glad i was able to give her another 8 years of life instead if the scum who threatened to put her to sleep if i didn't take her. She lived a happy life, but it's still tearing me apart frown

I'm so sorry for your loss...

Since you have other birds you may want to talk to your Vet about a necropsy of Baby..It's such a difficult thing to think of but for your other bird's health it's important.

I really am sorry for your family's loss.

I'm being them in on Wednesday to the vet, he said that it wasn't necessary to do that on her. He'll be doing bloodwork etc to make sure they're ok. I would lose it if Max and Persey left us as well.

Thanks, it's been a hard night and morning. I'm getting through it by thinking about giving her a second chance when we rescued her and all the fun times we had together. I'll be playing with persey and max a lot longer than usual for the foreseeable future. The cockatiels don't like hands so I'll be sticking my head in the cage more.

Im so sorry to hear this news, I know how you feel as many others here as well. You need to remember the good times and the fact that if you had not come to her rescue she would have left this earth a long time ago, never knowing love and what it was like to have a real family. Its so hard to lose them but I believe God brought you two together for a reason and he knew the number of her days and he chose you of all people to be blessed with the years that she had left. Remember the love and good times and I believe with all my heart she will be waiting for you across the rainbow bridge. Theres a wonderful video about the rainbow bridge you might like and I cant remember whats its called but its beautiful, sad but beautiful. maybe someone here can remember it and re-post it for all to watch. it gave me comfort when I lost Belle. Give yourself a few days before watching it but I think you may find it uplifting.(((HUGS)))

Sorry to hear this. Sorry for you, but glad Baby now has a perfect new body, healthy, strong, and whole. Fly free, and tell Sierra I'm coming as soon as called!
