My Beloved Phoe

My Darling, beloved Phoe passed away during the night.
I have talked so much about him being sick, but my baby deserves for people to know who he was before this.
We got Phoe just over 5 years ago from a Kijiji ad. He was 6 months old and already plucking, and the girl who had him had only had him for 2 weeks. She had gotten him from Petland and needed the money back to move, she said. His name was Phoenix, but we quickly shortened that to Phoe. He was already plucking, and despite our best efforts he continued to pluck until he was mostly bald. He was vet checked multiple times, all tests run, and he was completely healthy.
He was always full of conure attitude, and every other bird in the room was terrified of him, even though he couldn't fly. When we were given a GCC (Jax), we hoped they would become friends, and after a few months they became best buddies. They spent every waking hour together, even though they still chose to sleep in separate cages at night. We are leaving Phoe in his cage to give Jax time to say goodbye.
Phoe was fearless, the best eater we had, and so sweet it made our hearts sing. Every single time I called his name, he came running. My favourite pet name for him was Phoedle-Dee-Dee, and I said it every time I went into the bird room. I literally cannot imagine never saying that again.
At this moment, I can't imagine my life without him. I also can't imagine Jax without him. My heart is broken.
I decided to use a picture of the wonderful painting of Phoe & Jax that Gail did for us. Gail, this is more precious that I can even say.



RIP, my angel, my baby, my friend. I hope you are covered with feathers and flying for the first time in your life. I hope you know how much you are loved, and how much you will be missed. I love you with everything inside me and can't wait to see you on the other side of that rainbow bridge.

Re: My Beloved Phoe

I am so sorry, my deepest condolences, Terry. You redeemed Phoe and shared with him five years of love and companionship he richly deserved. Your heart is broken but I know his beautiful memories will prove healing over time, my friend.

Re: My Beloved Phoe

Oh dear Lord Terry! Words can not express my deep sadness of you and Regs' loss. I was soooo excited when reading about Phoe's remarkable recovery,that I was even reading the thread to Amy and I swear it looked like she had a big on her face/beak as I read to her.

This is utterly shocking indeed. We as a "family" have been loosing way too many beloved family members recently.

My heart aches for you my dear friend...
