Today is a sad day in our household. Lucky, our rescued budgie has passed on.
We never knew how old he was but, we had the joy of having him our in our lives for 5 1/2 years.
Nykie, our previous furry family member, found him in our backyard on a cold, blustery day in March 2013.
He was soaking wet, shivering and in shock when Nykie brought him to Alex. Alex yelled for me to come and help.
I brought the little fellow inside, dried him off and put him in a box while we waited to see if he was going to survive.
I had a shower, came out and found him sitting on top of the box waiting patiently for me. I put my finger under his chest and he gratefully hopped up on my finger. I was hooked.
Off to the pet store went and spent almost $100 on a cage and supplies. Once he was safely ensconced in his new home, he dove head first into the food bowl and ate nonstop for almost an hour.
Our family grew that day with Lucky.
A few months after, we adopted Tiny, who was his companion until the very end.
Our home will be quieter now with Lucky’ s passing. We will miss him.
