    Rest In Peace

    My father's budgie Cloud, died on December 30th at the age of 10.

    I feel somewhat angry with my father though. Apparently Cloud had not seemed well since Christmas but he did not take him to the vet. I suspect that the vet was away for the holidays, but I still think he should have went to the emergency one.. even if they could not help.

    Cloud was a bit of a gruff little guy. He refused to become handtrained apart from stepping up. He was a bit of a trickster, he liked to fly over your head, just skimming the surface to scare you when you weren't paying attention. He really loved to eat watermelon and carrot sticks.

    In the past few years, I had not seen Cloud often, but I still feel saddened by his passing, as are my father and sister. We'll miss you Cloud, thank you for being our friend for so many years. Rest in Peace <3

    Sorry for your loss. Don't stay angry with your dad too long ... 10 years is a good life time for a keet, it was probably just his time.

    I am sure your father is grieving over the loss as well. (No matter how old we parents get - we still very much miss our pets when they pass).

    Again ... so sorry for your loss.

    I'm not angry with him anymore. I talked to him and it turns out Cloud had been on a decline for a few months. After summer he had gotten a big bump on his cere which the vet removed (I think it was an infection, my dad was the one at the vet so I'm not sure). After that he had been quieter and less active than before (but not showing typical 'sick' behaviour). From everything he described, it was probably his time after all.

    I think my dad is sad about it too. My dad works all night and is alone a lot, so Cloud was really a friend that was always there. We will all miss Cloud very much. I'm happy for all the time he spent with us though

    sorry for your loss. One of the hardest things we ever learn is how to say goodbye. After ten years you can be sure Cloud had the best life he could. xx
