Unhappy Fly Free Butch

This morning i woke up and butch had died during the night. he has been sick for about a month not and really improved at one point, but saturday he stopped eating and got worse. i tried feeding him, but he was too far gone.

i adopted butch December 27, 2011 with Lenny. it was hard to train him and after lenny died, butch practically un-trained himself. then Leon came along. after quarantine and me taking leon with a favorite toy, i took butch out and from then on, butch became tame. he met all of the new flock members as they learned to come out. he had been bullied, made good friends, and bullied others who stole his friends. even this last month, others would visit him in the hospital cage/ tank. baby bird was brave enough to land on my bed to see him. leon would visit and try and eat all of his snacks (typical best friend).

its been a long [almost] 3 years and i am so glad i brought him home. he gave such color and life in the flock.

Shelly, you are an awesome bird mom, you did everything you could.
I know how hard it is to loose a beloved little bird.
Butch was a beautiful and adorable little budgie, so sad that he passed.



Fly free, little Butch, leave your illness behind you,
and please send greetings to Shelly from the other side of the rainbow bridge.

I am so sorry for your loss of precious Butch. He was too young to die but very lucky to be with you during the last 3 years of his life.

We called the vets office to tell them, and a day or two later the vet that I have been bringing him to called and he said that he was so amazed at all I did for butch with all the Meds and taking care of him. He said that most people wouldnt do that, and would just drop them off or get all freaked out. He was so impressed that he offered to come to my house if I wanted any help with nail clipping and whatnot, or if I want him to show me how to do something, so my birds don't get stressed by going to the vet I must say I am a little flattered

I know

It is a little sad that people won't do what I did, I can't say I would have done the same things I did if I was a new owner, but I am just glad I am ok with handling the fids now

Sorry to read about your little Butch . Like everyone said at least he had 3 wonderful years with you and the flock. It's awfully nice of your vet to offer a home visit.
