I am so not ready to talk about this, but I feel I'm gonna need help/ideas/thoughts from everyone here with dealing with Sunbeam now...
I found Winston dead today. I do not understand how or why and honestly I'm not ready to think about it. This is a lot for me right now. I'm sure he was fine this morning but now I can't seem to remember...

Not even 4 years together was no where near enough time my sweet baby boy :darkcloud:

Oh no...not Winston! I'm so very sorry! I'm heartbroken just reading this. I can't begin to imagine how you must be feeling. May your good memories of him be many and long-lasting! Sending warm hugs and prayers.

:( Sorry for your loss. It seems like Winston was an English budgie, which are unfortunately susceptible to health issues. I just bring it up because it is very possible it was something genetic and nothing you could have done.

If you feel you need answers and want a necropsy then make sure to keep the body in the fridge as freezing it will cause issues.
