Lucky was a little lovebird, with a bad foot, that I rescued on June 8, 2012.

Lucky never got over the lethargy that I posted about on 2015-08-30. We took her to the vet three times.

The last time, we left her there from Thursday the 9th, until Monday, the 12th. She was very skinny, and weak, when we got her back. But she started eating veraciously, and acting very happy to be home.

The night of the 13th, we noticed her breathing was laborious. So I held her for some time. I could not get her to eat, or drink, she was much too weak. She died in my hands, just before midnight. I think that was better than dying in the hospital, or alone in her cage. At least she knew she was loved.

She was a fighter until the end.

I'm always a big coward when it comes to reading sad messages, but I just know how much you loved your little Lucky. It's so heartbreaking that she had to leave when she had finally found her forever home. My heartfelt condolences for your loss!
