My sweet budgie Jacob Brandon passed away on Saturday (10/20/12).
I'm not really sure what happened! He was fine when I woke up, and he was fine when I got home from the store. I think he passed away sometime between 3 and 4 pm. I was so shocked when I looked over at the budgie cage and saw little Jacob just laying on the floor. I was to shocked to say anything, or even cry at first. I just stared, with my mouth open. When I finally out of shock, I wouldn't stop crying. I just sat there cuddling his body into my chest (While I was crying).
When I found his body, his head was under the ladder. So we think he fight have fallen from his perch, slid under the ladder, and when he tried to get up, he broke his neck. We can't be sure, but that is a possibility. I hope it was painless.
I feel so bad for Weasley. Jacob was her mate, they did everything together. Eat, sleep, preen. I feel so bad when I see Bella and Hermione preening together, and Weasley just sitting on her own perch by herself. She must be so upset. The reason I got Jacob was because Bella and Hermione were being mean to Weasley, and I wanted her to have a friend. But they became more than friends. They became mates. I wanted so bad for them to become a mommy and daddy together. I tried once this year, and wanted to try in the Spring time next year. I guess that's not gonna happen now.
I was so lucky to be his parront. I enjoyed our year together very much, me and Weasley loved you so much. Bella and Hermione and the rest of the family loved you. You will be missed so much. I still love you so much.
When I was at the park on Sunday, a beautiful greenish yellow butterfly with black stripes flew past me. I think Jacob asked for that to be sent to me, so I would know that he is okay up with our creator.
I'll love and miss you forever my sweet Jacob. I will see you one day in Heaven.
