they are so quiet I always thought indie was noisy one but must not have been
My Sydney was the quiet one. The day he passed, the birds were silent. All day. I really think they felt it, or knew something was not right.

Some people just don't understand how much our birds mean to us. If it had been a dog or cat, would she have reacted the samè way? I sure hope not.
Still, not the best response from your best friend?

That is horrible...but I can say many people don't put them in the same category as a beloved pet companion. It took so many years for me to convince my family. I don't get it,
if anything caused someone I care about sadness, I feel empathy

To understand the true depth of these special souls, then those who have shared their life with them are our greatest support. We see so many find us here, just because they need that connection . The AA community provides so much comfort to those , who's first post is seeking help with their loss.

I'm one of so many thinking of you today. Wishing we can make your pain less .

I'm so terribly sorry!! :sorrow:
Just so hard to get my head around how does it change in 3/5mins I know in my logical head it does but my hearts like why
Sometimes they go so quickly without warning. It's not your fault, so hope you're not blaming yourself. I know it's so hard though :bluhug:

So truly sorry., Emma. Like others have said, and I say, though I do it myself, do not blame yourself. Easier said than done, I know.

As for the response from your friend, I know that feeling, too. You grieve as long as you need to, however you need to. If others knew or had had such a special connection with another being, they wouldn't say things like that. So they obviously haven't and I feel sorry for them.

Noone in my family knows we lost Sydney. Most never knew his name. I would rather grieve alone than risk telling someone and they respond like your friend did because I know it happens and it would break my heart.
I am also thankful of the AA community. We understand each other more than our own families and friends sometimes and we are always here for each other :hug9:

Honestly I say what I think most of time she’s savage with it though if she got something to say says it and if she doesn’t like something or someone there’s no talking her around can be embarrassing sometimes :rofl:
