Squawk gave up his fight 10 minutes ago. He’s not been well these past couple of days but took a turn for the worse today. Needless to say I’m heartbroken and will miss him for the rest of my days. He was very special to me, a one off. I’m relieved in one way that he’s not suffering anymore but saddened that he had such suffering in the first place.
I love you Squawk Fly High my Squawkasaurus xxxxxxx
Oh no Jane I am so so sorry. R.I.P little squawk. Big hugs to you xx

In memory of Pickle, my friend. 8th June 2012 - 7th August 2017 ❤️ Buddy 25 October 2015 - 3rd December 2017 Boris 11 August - 3rd December 2017 Ernie 12th November 2017 - 9th June 2019 Not forgetting little Perry. May to August 2012. Taken tragically too soon. Together forever. Gone but never forgotten.
I’m devastated. The end has come quicker than I thought it would, which I’m glad for him as he’s been unwell for such a long time but it’s left me feeling shell shocked as he was doing so well. He wasn’t well yesterday and hardly ate all day but when I had a sandwich for tea he came over and wanted a nibble of the crust like he used to. Squawk used to love a little bit of crust when I had toast or bread. I let him have a teeny nibble now I’m blaming myself for todays turn of events in case it did something to him. The logical part of my brain says not as it really was only a matter of time before his body just couldn’t fight anymore but that’s what us humans do right? We always analyse, try to rationalise but still blame ourselves. I just wasn’t ready for him to go, he was only 4 years old. I wish I could wake up tomorrow and today’s been a dream/nightmare and he’s still here, downstairs waiting for me to uncover his cage.
I’ve taken him to the vets to be cremated and his ashes will be put in a casket for me to bring him home. When I got.back today and pulled up on the drive I didn’t want to go indoors. Not without my boy inside, sat next to my chair. It’ll get easier I know and I’m just thankful that I’m not at work until Wednesday so I don’t have to put on a brave face, it’s like Squawk was aware and I’m just glad he waited until today so I could help him pass over the bridge.
I love you Squawky. My special little monkey. I never knew I could love a budgie as much as I love you xxx💙xxx
We all analyse when we lose someone, pet or human. Always what ifs. But, no way was it to do with the bread. If anything, he was still happy and wanting to share with you he had been ill but he clearly had spirit. He will always be your special boy. But he so had a good time with you. At the moment it’s all a shock. Totally get what you’re saying about not being in work until Wednesday. So many don’t understand how strongly people feel about pets, and especially birds.
Thank you ffiscool. He really picked up when he saw the bread which I read as a good sign. He came over and tweeted at me for some just like he always used to. He hadn’t done that for a while so I though Squawks getting back to normal but it was a cruel trick of fate in the end. I was clinging onto every little positive thing I saw in him, praying he would stay with me. I do wonder now how much he had been eating as I had noticed that he seemed to be pecking at the food rather than injesting it. I’m so glad though that I didn’t have him PTS the other week as he did have some good days still and we had one last Christmas together.
