I just don't know what happened. He was fine during the day Saturday and Sunday morning he was dead. Poor Holly was just sat next to his body.
I feel so sad, Holly's just been looking so down and been quiet, I've seen her eating though so I suppose that's good. I might put her in with Noisy and Dan in the future.
Rio was my favourite, the first budgie I've ever had. He was so sweet and funny, and so friendly. It was only this week that my little nephew decided he was brave enough that he wanted to get one of them on his finger and I didn't even have to think about it before we got Rio out to play. Now he keeps asking me where he is and I don't know how to explain to a 3 year old that he isn't going to see him again.
I'm really missing him and the rest of the flock have been really quiet since. He just got on so well with everyone.

I'm very sorry for your loss... It's never easy to part with a much beloved little friend, you have my deepest sympathies.
Time will ease the pain and as your heart begins to heal, the memories of the good times you had with Rio will give you comfort.
Rest in peace, Rio. You were much loved and will be missed.
