    Phoenix Rising

    In the beginning of June, I set out on my trip to Indiana with my animals tucked away safely in the camper. We made it (after a slight detour) and I unpacked the trailer and bid farewell to my parents the next day. I had been watching my birds, making sure they weren't stressed, giving them time outside the carriers and whatnot. Everything went so smooth. But the day my parents left I noticed Phoenix acting strange, sitting at the bottom of her carrier in the back. I kept a close eye on her all day and kept checking on her, seeing why she was acting this way. I intended to get her cage set up that night after everything had settled down. I went out to the store, and returned home about 20 minutes later to find I had lost my poor baby.

    I would have posted this sooner, but I've been a little busy and also grieving for my poor lost tiel. I've been concentrating a lot of time toward Griffon, giving her a little extra special attention because even though the two of them didnt get along when they were outside of the cage, they still had a bit of a bond. I dont want Griffon to feel too lonely so I have spent a lot of time with her.

    Im still really sad about loosing my precious Phoenix, it has taken nearly 2 years to get her to settle down and stop plucking her feathers and to accept people more. I worked so hard to give her a good loving home, and I like to think that I did a pretty good job.

    Ksandra, I am so sorry for your loss. Phoenix was a special bird and I enjoyed
    reading all about her. You must miss her so much and that is always the most difficult part- letting them go. You gave her a wonderful life that no one else could or would. I hope her memories will give you some comfort.
    Hugs,
    karen
