You moved in, in a tiny, dirty cage and the only toy you had was a singing plastic bird. I felt so sorry for you and promised you, to make life better from that moment on. Though you forgot how it was to have friends, Fyn and Jinkx accepted you right away.
I remember the first picture I took of the three of you. You looked so happy.
You had to learn many things again. How to play, how to interact with others, how to fly properly.
As the flock grew, you became everyone’s best friend. You loved to tease Miffy, chat with Jinkx and Fyn or cared for Luma.
Though sometimes you still were a loner. Telling stories. For hours.
As the time went on, we had to find out that you were sick. Your life became an up and down. We knew that, sooner or later, we would loose you because to those stupid megabacteria.
Yesterday evening you could not fly anymore. So we put you into a single cage and separated you from the flock. If things wouldn’t have been better until the next day, we would have brought you to the vet.
Last night you fell asleep. And you did not wake up again.
Say hi to Tioh for us.
We love you.

We did not see that coming. He looked really good the past days. Life is cruel sometimes. It took two birds within one week.
It makes me feel truly miserable..
Sorry that this blog became such a sad place..
’..and if you love her, let her go.’
This morning, September 1st 2017, we had to put Tioh to sleep. Her condition suddenly dropped in the evening, and her belly was all bloated again. She got punctured and received many antibiotics. We really thought she was fine again. But, oh little birdies, when will you stop to hide your illnesses?
In the end, she could not even sit straight anymore. She fought. But she lost.
We talked over everything that would have been possible. Try to let her recover again, try to remove her oviduct..
We could have tried, but she was already too weak. We did not want her to feel pain anymore. So we decided it’s the best for her to let her go.
Tioh got 2 and a half year old, which is nothing for a budgie.
We tried to offer her a bright and happy life. She was living in a bird room with her six friends and her loving partner Fyn, who will be missing her dearly for sure.
You might know her from her Nut-pictures.
She loved to rest in there. (Or simply have a look in my ‘Tioh tag’)
Out of the 4 girls, she was the one who flew best, the one who sang the best songs. We were always joking and saying it was her dream to become a professional singer. 🙂
Anyway, with losing Tioh, we’ve lost a part of a very special world. It might sound weird for many people, but 70% of our daily conversations revolve around the birds. We make up many stories, like giving them jobs and let them go on adventures.
Tioh. You moved in together with Yara. Yara already left me two years ago, but the two of you were the closest friends ever.
You’ll meet her again now, my little beauty.
We love you. Thank you for being a part of our lifes.
