    JoJo died...

    I have some sad news.

    My pet budgie JoJo passed away while we were gone on vacation. The person who was birdsitting for us texted my mom as we were on our way home. She thinks he died from the heat, but we're not quite sure. I personally believe it was from stress.

    Personally I think it's for the best, because i feel that I wasn't able to give him the best quality of life, due to him being my first budgie and my lack of experience.

    We're going to be getting two birds this weekend, since now I have learned from my mistakes and I feel as if I'll be able to care for them better. The reason why I'm getting two birds this time is because I feel since I believe JoJo died from stress that it'll be better for both birds that they're together so that they don't get lonely.

    As for JoJo, we're picking up his body later today and we're still planning a funeral for him.

    RIP JoJo

    Sorry to hear, JOJO passed anyway. Did you check food and water were enough in the cage?

    Almost all my birds have been single - and none have ever died from "stress" or loneliness.

    I would make sure you clean the cage incredibly well and disinfect (F10 being my personal preference) in case you're wrong.

    Also - budgies really aren't all that hard to care for. I think you need to track down the cause of poor JoJo's passing to make sure it can be prevented in future (as you mentioned inexperience I'm wondering about toxins etc?)


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!

    Re: JoJo died...

    I have some news about JoJo's passing.
    As I said before, JoJo passed away while being in the care of a birdsitting. I had made sure to tell her how much food and water to feed him, so I don't think he could have died of malnourishment.
    But when I was given his body to bury, I noticed something a bit strange. There was a cut on his side, as well as dried up blood in his carrier. And when I looked at the bottom of his cage later on, i saw some sort of loose animal hairs.
    The person who was birdsitting for us had two cats, so by putting two and two together I think it's safe to say that he was unfortunately killed by one of them.
    She tried her best to make sure the cats would not be in the same room as him, but unfortunately one of them must have snuck in.

    This is a testimony to how fast cats are when it comes to catching birds. I've seen them pounce on outside birds. It is always best to keep cats in another room away from pet birds with doors firmly closed. They also can tip bird cages over. I'm so sorry your little budgie had his life taken away. So sad!

    I hope you will have better luck with your next budgies!

    Re: JoJo died...

    ooh no - poor JoJo - and your poor friend - they must feel terrible

    At least you now know the cause, and don't need to worry about toxins or infections that could harm any future fids

    I'm so sorry for you loss x


    Thanks Lee for the adorable sig!
