Two days ago my little zebra finch died. He was 12 1/2 years old and was the last one I had. In some ways it was a blessing in disguise because for the last 4 months he hasnt been able to sit on a perch but he wasnt in pain and was lively enough and everything was at 'ground level' for him. It was sad doing the final cleaning of the cage that has never been empty for over 13 years. At the moment I'm not getting anymore but I'm keeping the cage just in case I change my mind.

I've still got one peach faced love bird. She must be over 15 years old, I have had her for 13 years and ours was her 2nd home.

Good job I still have all the wild birds - at the moment they are feeding as though there will be no tomorrow!

Lovely to watch though.
Emmy

Emmy, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My brother-in-law (Anne's oldest brother) and his bride had a peach-faced love bird for years. In fact, the last I knew he was still in their freezer as the two of the couldn't decide on a burial site.

Anne took Luca, our oldest cat, back to the vet Today for blood work to check on his thyroid and check his stools. Long story short, another $114! I have to attend a two day seminar on taxes and will check out your other posts later in the week.

Again, Sorry about your finch!

Sad

Thanks for your thoughts Simy.

I'm really concerned about both the dogs at the moment- but I guess the main problem is 'old age'. Something is bothering Gizzy again, but its not his ear, so I guess its going to be another trip to the vet on Thursday if he isnt any better, Bengy has to go in any case because I've found a little lump on his side but it doesnt seem to be bothering him but I want to get it checked out just in case.

Fingers crossed that Gizzy may have just pulled a muscle jumping down off my knee and that it is just a fatty lump with Bengy. Pray
Emmy
