Merlin..my beloved IRN..went to the rainbow bridge last Thursday night..he had an eye and sinus issue I noticed on March 15th..Went to Dr.Driggers..but saw Dr. Scagnelli..they prescribed meds and drops..I did everything they said. I was home all day Tuesday and Wednesday...he was healing..looked great ..acted normal.when I got home from work Thursday..hubby said he didnt eat. I said bird..you didnt eat. He said What?..I gave him his dinner..he didnt touch it.. ok.youll eat later. He was sleeping ..so I put him to bed and checked on him a few times. He was sleeping..when I pulled the cover off in the morning. He was gone. It was peaceful..he was on the perch and his head was laying on the food bowl...I had to pry his feet off the perch to get him out. Had to go to work..driving through tears...I cant believe it guys. I had him 17 years.. Its so quiet here.. No more " Hi bird"..no more chicken clucking..no more screaming when he heard my car coming up the driveway..No more kisses..I placed him outside under the bay window where my chair is where we sat together..wait for me dude. ..I'll see you again.

I am so sorry you've lost Merlin.
17 years, so many years you've shared, but still not near enough.
Hugs...

I am so sorry for your loss. We wear the companionship of our birds on our souls. There is so much to miss about them but so much more to the memories we have of their entire little beings. He’s still with you… I am convinced of that. Big hugs
