Injured CAG is dead

Sponsored Links
My friend's CAG died on the operating table. Probably for the best, but oh, so sad. If you've followed this thread, you know she was so frail mentally due to her husband's recent death. "Nellie" would always say, "Are you okay?" My friend is looking around at her cage, playstand, and gym asking herself if there's anything else she could have done to prevent this. Just a warning to severe pluckers that they are soooo vulnerable.

Re: Injured CAG is dead

Ohnoes.... that poor woman (and poor birdy).
Huge hugs for trying to give this bird a good life.

It does not matter she was loved a short while (though 2 years can seem an eternity!) - she *was* loved.

The bird flies free now, the humans have my warmest support.
So sorry for (another) loss.

(Thank you for this update - that also was not easy to write I think)

Re: Injured CAG is dead

Putting a bird under anesthesia is always a risk. even when they are health.
I am so sorry for you friends loss. As you say it could be for the best the poor bird sounds like he/she was suffering greatly and would have had a long recovery at best.

Please pass my deepest condolences to your dear friend. She will need support through a terribly difficult adjustment.
