It doesn't pay OH and I to go away these days. After the year we have just had we decided at the last minute, while everything was well with the family etc to grab a few days in France, a welcome break. Everything was lovely until i had the text from my daughter, she was at mine seeing to the Buds and needed me to ring her straight away, my heart sank .
My daughter comes in every day if we go away, sometimes twice if she feels its needed and she had gone in on Thursday to find little Tinkerbell had passed away overnight. She had spent some time the previous day with them and she had no reason to suspect anything was wrong, she knows what to look for and always spends time watching them and checking for any signs of illness, there was nothing to concern her, she was very upset and i felt awful for her .
Its another one of those that will drive me mad, did i miss something before we went, i shouldn't have gone, etc etc etc, at the end of the day all the fretting in the world wont bring her back and i will never know why
Fly high my sweet little Tinky Binx, you were very much loved by us all

Oh no. I’m SO sorry. But you didn’t miss anything. There were no signs or your daughter would have also spotted it. whatever did it, it was quick, it would seem. You could have not been away and still woken up to this. It’s very sad, especially hard for you to have when away too. And hard for your daughter.
It was a pleasure to have met you, pretty Tink. RIP little one
I am so so sorry but please don't be hard on yourself, it would have happened if you were there or not, hard for you and your daughter though. Fly high little one.

Oh gosh, I’m so sorry to read this skysmum. It’s alwaye more of a shock when there has been no sign of illness. Your daughter shouldn’t be too hard on herself not yourself as you left the budgies in good hands and this could not have been foreseen whatsoever.
I am so sorry, skysmum. I'm still not sure what is the easier to take - the sudden passings or the drawn out, fight-for-life illnesses. At least any suffering she was going through was short, that is the biggest consolation. Tinks was such a sweetheart, we will all miss her.
Rest in peace, sweet girl. xxx
We are not Vets, Avian or otherwise. If you have any serious doubts about your budgies' health an appointment with an Avian vet should always be your first point of call.
Oh no this is awful! Am so sorry you lost your little Binx lets am sure it was quick like you said your daughter would have noticed if anything was up..So no-one is to blame except God thought he needed her now for something very important x

Am so sorry to read this skysmum. I've had to shed a tear reading this. Tinky Binx wasn't very old was she? Seems you hadn't had her for very long. So sad. No doubt your daughter feels terrible that it happened on her 'watch' too. Believe me, you would have noticed if something was wrong before you went away skysmum. We all know how well you look after your birds.
Fly high little one with all our sadly departed little feathereds.
