Parrotlet Passing

IMG_1047.jpg
My special little girl passed away shortly after returning from the vet. We had her for a little over 8 years and she has left a big hole in our hearts.

Thank you. I never realized how attached I had become and how much this would hurt.

I am so sorry that you lost your little girl! I know how hurt you must feel! That is because you loved her so much and she loved you!


She is now with my Bogie and Ricochet at the Parrotlet Rainbow Bridge.

Thank you. It means a lot coming from people who have been through it. Keira will be a wonderful companion for Bogie and Ricochet. My wife and I are homebodies and she was always there with us, until now. Luckily we still have our 27-year-old Yellow-Naped Amazon.

My wife works from home because of the virus going around. I am retired. I got Bogie back in 2008 and he passed in 2018. We had to put him down. His lining around his lungs grew real thick and he just couldn't breathe well. I am almost finished writing a Book about my experiences with Bogie. So, you have had Keira 8 years and I know what you are going through. They become part of you...part of your heart....part of your soul. Losing Bogie and Ricochet hurts...God, it hurts~~~~


Post anytime you feel you want to talk about Keira. Talking about her life will honor her and make you feel better.


David and Vicki, in the Spirit of Bogie and Ricochet

I am sitting here looking at the spot where Keira's cage should be sitting with the cover over it for the night. Now the table is empty. Attached is a photo of Keira in her cage. In the upper left corner, you can see her favorite toy. It has felt strips hanging down like an umbrella. You can see her tail sticking out of it.
She would go in there when it was time for bed, when she wanted to be left alone and when I sprayed our Amazon with water. Her cage was next to his and she HATED to be sprayed with water. When she saw me headed to his cage with the spray bottle she would immediately hide in that place.
Also, she would go crazy tweeting and running around when I would return home after being gone for an hour or more. She would do the same thing when I put a coat on since she apparently figured out that meant I was leaving. She only did this with me.
As you can probably tell, I feel that I need another parrotlet to fill the void caused by Keira's passing. How do you keep from trying to make the new parrotlet into a clone of your past one and not be upset when it doesn't happen?

Mainly because you can't make one parrotlet anymore like another any more than you can do so for a human friends. Parrotlets are unique beings, each their own little spark of fire. It is easier to accept them as they are and develop your friendship.
