Unhappy My beloved Quaker is gone :(

My best friend and little buddy Whirly just passed away. He was a beautiful blue Quaker, and he was 16 years old. I loved him so very much. I cannot stop crying. I still don't understand what happened. It all happened so quickly. He started showing signs of illness Sunday, and I couldn't get him into the vet until this afternoon. The vet said it was most likely respiratory and that he was indeed very sick. He gave him an antibiotic shot and sent me home with some treated drinking water for him, and told me to keep using the UVB lamp. By the time we got home, I put him back in his cage, and he just laid down on the cage floor and went to sleep. I guess I just came here to find others that can relate to how deep the love for a bird can be. I will miss him so terribly.

Re: My beloved Quaker is gone :(

well you came to the right place. I'm so sorry for your loss, I know how painful it is. You took action and tried to save him .

I only wish birds didn't evolve to hide signs of illness. If only we could know sooner how bad they felt we could help them.

My deepest love is a missing blue quaker. So I'm even more connected to your loss of Whirly.

Re: My beloved Quaker is gone :(

I am so sorry for your loss. Not many non bird owners can understand the depth of feelings and the bond that develops.

I lost my conure, Lego, 3 years ago. I still feel the loss, but can look at pictures and videos without breaking down.

Cherish the memories you two shared. I believe their love continues.

Re: My beloved Quaker is gone :(

I am so very sad to hear of this, you have my sympathy. Our parrots do certainly occupy special places in our hearts, and when they leave they leave a disproportionally large hole, in comparison to their size.

Re: My beloved Quaker is gone :(

So sorry for the loss of your Quaker parrot. Many of us here have had similar experiences and know how heartbreaking it is to lose a much-loved companion parrot. I'm sure you have lots of good memories of Whirly, and in time, they will be a comfort to you. Whirly will always be with you, in your heart and in your thoughts.

I'm so very sorry for your loss of Whirly. They take such a huge piece of our hearts when they go, and my heart hurts for you.

Ivan.Vanca, the vet wasn't sure what he was suffering from unfortunately. Just that it was respiratory.
