Bye-Bye, Apple...

I'm really, really, really sad to say that Apple is no longer here with me.
It was a complete accident, but completely my fault. If I could go back
and change something I would do it in a heart beat. Basically what happened
was I had Apple out on his stand and I was sitting on the couch under my
blanket. I ended up falling asleep some how, and Apple, being the little
cuddle bug he is, got under the blanket with me and fell asleep, too. When I
woke up, I was unaware he was under the blanket with me. I ripped the
blanket off me, it fell to the floor, and I stepped on Apple. He squawked and
ran away, but after checking him over and over, he seemed fine to me. Was
not limping, did not look hurt, acted normal. A few days later I found he had
passed in his cage.

People keep telling me it isn't my fault but I still feel it is. If I had done
anything differently...not fallen asleep, taken him to the vet's after I stepped
on him...maybe he would still be here with me. He didn't even make it a
year. He would've been one in March.

I still can't accept that he's gone. It hurts me so much to talk about him but
I feel you guys all deserve to know.

Another thing....It was strange how he died. One thing he used to do was
grab his tail feathers with his foot and just hold them. It was really strange,
but that's how I found him dead. His eyes were also wide open.

Anyways, that's that....

Awwww I am so sorry, no it was not your fault, it was an accident.. And one you will learn from in the future... My GCC also grabs her tail with her foot and pulls them around , but she chews on them... I think it is self comforting like a baby sucks his thumb.

Thank you everyone. It means so much to me for you to comment on this thread.
ParrotletsRock - I never thought of it that way. That may be exactly what it is.
