3 days ago on Monday the 2nd of December, sweet Tess passed away from old age She had lost her balance similar to her late mate, Dave, and couldn't hold her body up by her self, let alone walk or move. She came inside with me that night and sat cuddled up against me, while I scratched her head and whispered to her "Your alright Tessy, your alright." She had a quick nap there before I wrapped her in blankets and made a bed for her. She died sometime during the night.
I miss you dearly Tess and the aviary is not complete without you. Your yellow feathers bought happiness to the aviary and it's no where near the same without you. Everyone loved you as shown from the 10 seconds of silence myself and the other budgies spent for you to be always remember. You are now back with Dave and Idol. REST IN PEACE TESS and know that you were loved beyond the imagined.
Tess was Idols foster mum and was her only chick from near 10 clutches containing up to 8 eggs each. I feel for Tess since she was robbed of her only chick just 3 weeks after being surprised by it. I would like to emphasis this in memory of her:
As my final words to her were "you were the best mother Tess, the best Idol could have wished for. I love you Tess"
She was extraordinary above the extraordinary and was true Aussie battler. Her life will be remember forever in my heart along with everyone else's heart she touched.
I am very sorry for your loss of Tess. Rest in peace little Tess.
My Birds My Foods & Supplements Always treat your pets as family members. We sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures (Quran 21:107) There is no creature on [or within] the earth or bird that flies with its wings except [that they are] communities like you. We have not neglected in the Register a thing (Quran 6:38)
Rest in Peace, sweet beautiful wonderful Tess. Keep her cute face and happy song close to your heart, and she will be with you forever, Take comfort in that she is with Dave and Idol again talking about the wonderful lives they has with you, Nicola. I am so sorry for your loss. Tess was a special budgie.
