Captain America left for Rainbow bridge this morning. It was a shock and unexpected as she had been in quite good health.
She had a lipoma which had not grown much more from when it started last year and she had been coping fine. I do not believe this is the reason she has left us. This morning she looked tired when i let all the birds out, and half an hour later she was on the aviary floor in the sunshine.
Captain America was named so as I was on holiday in 2014 when i got a message a budgie had been found and give to our vets and needed a home. I called the vets and said i would be happy to donate to a charity of their choice and rehome her as soon as i got back from holiday. Fast forward a week and we were home and i was at the vets picking up this lovely little blue budgie, and although Captain America is associated with masculinity, it just seemed appropriate to call her this.
Captain America was only small but so cute and quite tame. I suspect whomever had lost her was quite upset but after not being able to find the owner i hoped i would be able to give her a good life.
She first paired up with Percy as his 'bit on the side', before Bruce came to live with us and they became a first item. Bruce is a gorgeous, well natured grey budgie and Captain America was smitten. He was attentive and loyal - it was all she ever wanted. They spent almost 3 blissful years happily together, preening, sitting on swings and singing together, feeding and following each other around.
Captain America - it was a joy to have known you and i know your life was a happy one. You did things your way, and i am so glad you did not suffer, yet at the same time so heartbroken that you have left us.
Rest in peace my sweet girl, I will look after Bruce for you. Until we meet again I love you xx
