This has got to be one of the worst weeks of my life. First, my parent's 17 year old cockatiel passed away, then two days later, my 11 year old budgie passed. I loved both of them very much. I can't stop crying. My apartment feels so empty now without my Emily. I feel so alone. I know she is rid of her suffering now but I still miss her chirping, being able to kiss her belly and talking to her every day. She was always there to make me smile if I was having a bad day and now that's all gone :(     I wasn't with her when she passed and I feel awful about that. She was on the opposite side of the cage when I came home (on the floor), the side I always sit on when talking to her. I keep thinking she was looking for me and I wasn't there :(
I hope these thoughts pass quickly since it's not helping one bit. Nothing will bring her back :(

You enjoyed the affection and company of these birds for a lot of years!  Birds can be so cheerful and loving and their chatter keeps the home from being lonely.  I hope you don't feel guilty for long, thinking your birdie was looking for you.  Goodness, there is so much we have no control over.  I hope these few sentences can bring you some sense of company in your loneliness and grief for your birds.

Thank you for the kind message. It does help and I appreciate it. I'm still not doing great since I just got home after 5 nights of staying at my parent's house. My apartment seems so empty without my budgie. It helped being around my parents to grieve over their cockatiel but now I'm all alone.  It is getting better for me though and hopefully soon I'll be able to think about the birdies without tearing up.
