Koko was a SWEET little man who loved to chatter all day & play. He was so gentle.
My SWEET SWEET Koko Bear (blue on his chest) died this morning at 1:11 AM on my chest, thank God I was with him.
He'd been slowing down a bit the last year or so & my husband told me that he's stayed at the bottom of his cage all day yesterday when I was at work.
I came home from work, put my PJ's on & went in the spare room with him on my chest & a faux fur scarf wrapped around my neck for him to cuddle in, and keep in his body heat. He passed at 1:11 AM
I'm off work today, so I put Koko back in the Budgie cage on a cloth, on the floor, so Skylar could learn that Koko had no more strength (life), I didn't want Skylar to think Koko was lost somewhere or that I took him.
.. If you have more than 1 budgie, you know they call & look for each other when one flys out of the room.
Koko promptly went to the floor of the cage & over to Koko, he talked to him a LOT & nudged him a little & touched Koko's feathers with his beak. Now he is back on a perch just to the side of Koko, just looking at him & talking. I am glad I let Skylar say bye to his best mate.
Tonight we will bury Koko in a planter in our house I feel very sad. I have a million pix, but I'm not gonna bother trying to turn on every laptop or go thru all my memory sticks. tonight I will spend time with Koko, Skylar & Marley my green cheek conure.
thank you for letting me share this with all of you.
