RIP Cuddles

You know that hollow feeling you get when a pet dies? Well I’m experiencing that at the moment. Earlier today I received a call from my little brother telling me that my bird Cuddles (I named him when I was like 7 or 8, cut me some slack) had been found in the bottom of his cage making strange noises which he described to sound like hiccups. I was concerned, Cuddles hadn’t done that in the 14 or so years I had owned him. I asked which vet he was being taken to. My parents had decided he didn’t need a vet and that dad could take care of him. I objected. My brother (who I have to say is a wonderful person, and I really appreciate that he made sure to keep me in the loop) listened to my plea and took Cuddles to get medical attention. The vet couldn’t do anything. Cuddles was too sick, and too old and just wasn’t right to keep him going. He was put down.

My brother thought it would be a comfort to me to know that he and my parents are ‘replacing’ Cuddles today.

EDIT: A lovely woman at work just came back from lunch, she bought me a little bird statue (she noticed I was upset earlier and came over to check on me). You don’t read this Viv, but thanks, you’re amazing!
