Re: Parrot Partner Grieving

So sorry! I went through this last year with Burt The Bird passing and leaving Ta-dah all alone. She greived very hard, barely ate and just sat and stared into space. I spent a lot of time sitting and talking to her, a d trying to get her to eat. I knew she couldn't spend the next 20 years of her life alone, she is five, my other bird was 17....And I wanted a Quaker, so I ordered one right away from a breeder. People say nit to get a bird for your bird, but I did, and for me as well. I had a second cage, and was prepared for them not getting along. I regret nothing, and they love each other.
This is so recent for me I really feel the pain you and your bird are going through. Its so hard to watch them greive......it was harder than my greif..... I was able to bring Neptune home two weeks later, and though kept apart for quarantine, Ta-dah immediately found interest in life again......and then I took in rehoming parakeets, found an additional Quaker that need rescue..so my house is bursting..
Loki I hope you and Burt The Bird are flying in the big blue..
