    Little Shorty passed away and I need advice

    I just thought I'd tell everyone that little Shorty passed away.
    I had raised him from 2 weeks old. If you all remember, he was the one that had no upper mandible and no 'hands' - where the flight feathers grow.

    When I got severe allergy problems after suffering anaphylactic shock, I rehomed all my beloved birds. Shorty was doing great at this time and he was about 3 months old when I brought him back to Jeff, the bird store owner and breeder. Jeff found Shorty the most fabulous forever home with a little boy who was disabled. He had said to his mom one day, 'Mom, you know why I love this bird so much? It's because he's disabled just like me!!' Needless to say, the little boy was heartbroken when he lost Shorty.

    I'm just thankful that Shorty didn't pass away in my care. It's tough enough to hear about your little ones passing away, but it's really awful when you witness it.

    I would really love to do something for this little boy to help him heal from his loss. Any suggestions?

    Awww!! I am so sorry Shorty passed away. That little boy will miss him so much. I have seen pet stones on Amazon, that can be put in a garden setting, or perhaps in this little boys room. That would alway remind him of Shortie, always and forever, each time he touches the stone!

    I am sorry Pat to hear that little shorty passed away. How very sad the little boy lost his loved bird and I hope he finds peace in knowing he was able to love him and take care of him.

    Hugs to you Pat.

    Could get him a new bird to love. Check to see if the time is right and the bird can be acquired when it is. He will like a new pet.

    Buy Him one of those Furreal Electronic Baby Maccaws! He might even want to name it after Shorty I'm very sorry for your loss.

    The Maccaw toy can be found on Ebay for 15.00 to $18.00. I've looked

    Pat, I am so sorry to hear about Shorty. I like Ellen's idea of the garden stone or a forever stone. I think it would be a nice token and a keepsake of the short time that this young boy had with Shorty.
