after just beginng to deal with frootloop's passing... i had to have my beloved ozzy put down today.
i am completly destroyed. not that i don't love all the gong show members, but ozzy was my sweetest girl!
i am not even close to getting gover the shock, i can't believe it. my head hurts so bad from crying.
about 48 hrs ago i noticed ozz's but was all puffed up. i was amazed because she a classic "egg bum" and was having few but huge poo's. i figured for sure she was egg bound. (happens more in first eggs and senior birds (ozz was both, she was about 8 and had never laid before)no egg in 48 hrs spells trouble and we went to the vet.
he thought so too but we discussed how we couldn't feel the hardness of a shell. he took her back and x-rayed her, there was no egg. it was a fast growing tumer around her kidney area.
there was shots and stuff to keep her going a while longer but no cure. i suddenly realized what i had to do and started to cry.dr kawanis took some pics of her for me and she chirped and showed off for him and the camera. (she was sitting on my shoulder in the office and she is fully flighted) he took her out of the room and gave her the shot and brought her back as i'd asked. i told her i loved her and kissed and stroked her while she drank my tears. in a few seconds, she laid her head down and snuggled into my chest, closed her eyes... and was gone.
fly with the angels my baby
i love you and miss you.
R.I.P my muzz muzz,
say hi to froot loop
i have to go, sorry.
