I am very sorry for my absence, but sadly, our little Eclectus girl, Mia, passed away last week on Sunday, she was only nearing 6 months old.
It was like any other day. Got up, uncovered Mia, she squawked as soon as she seen me which we say is/was her way of saying ‘good morning’ to us, and I gave her breakfast (Roudybush hand-feeding formula). I checked her again later on, she was sitting on her boing happily, and all was absolutely fine. Come dinner time, well for her, she looked really bad.
I got her out of the cage, and while I was holding her, all of a sudden, her wings would flap uncontrollably, her feet clenched, and she went really stiff and unresponsive - this happened a few times, and the last time she took a few breaths and passed away. I sat with her on my chest for a bit, crying so much, I didn’t want to let her go, but my mum took her, and they (my mum and brother) buried her.
It all happened fast, and unexpectedly, we are incredibly devastated.
RIP little Mia, you were, and are, loved so much, and we will miss you and never ever forget you, I hope that you know this.
