Jasper passed away on Friday.
I think whatever Minnie had he got too, because he died the same way. I found him on the bottom of the cage, unable to move much, fluffed up and very sick looking. It was so sudden. He was much more alive than Minnie had been when I found her, and I desperately held him and urged him to drink water or something, anything. But of course, he didn't. I held him and petted him, kissed him and told him I was sorry for whatever I did wrong, and that I love him. I knew going to the vet wouldn't help. For Minnie it was far too late.
So he passed that night. I have yet to bury his little body. I feel like I must have done something wrong and that's what upsets me the most, as I always put my birds first.
I also feel bad for Celia, as she must feel very lonely having her best friend gone.
I'll always love him.
