After a series of vet visits and being hospitalised my sweet and loving Gentle Giant Blue Boy has peacefully gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
He was always so gentle and friendly to all budgies and people, he liked to be by himself mostly , perch on his favourite place which was above the fridge door on a cake plate from here he would survey the happenings of the day. Bluey shared a cage with Fifo but Budget would be free to interact with him as well.
Bluey was my Pretty Boy, to me he was amazingly beautiful and I loved him for what he was, he was not tamed as such but would fly and sit on my head or shoulder, chatter and give me gentle nibbles. He never ever bit, or seemed angry.
It was a hard decision , but made with love and kindness to allow him to sleep peacefully now with his friend Haze and Mum and Dad budgie. Fly high my sweet boy you are now flying with your Angel wings and each morning I will still be saying "
Hi BlueBoy" as I always have .

I'm sorry to hear this... You have my deepest sympathies over your Blue's passing. I'm sure your Blue Boy knows how much he was loved and cared for and appreciates all you have done for him.
He was such a good trooper and has overcome so many obstacles with your help.
Now he is made whole again and is flying free on rainbow bridge and is watching over you, Fifo and Budget.
May the cherished memories of your sweet Blue give you comfort, he will always remain close to your heart.
Rest in peace, Blue Boy. You were much loved and will be missed.
Your selfless act of allowing Blue Boy to move on peacefully to the Rainbow Bridge was the one demonstrating the very greatest love, Cathy.
I know how difficult it is and you have my deepest sympathy.
Fly high, soar free darling Blue Boy; rest peacefully now wee man.
I'll lend you,
for a little while, a bird of mine, He said.
For you to love while he lives,
and mourn when he is dead.
It may be six or seven years, or maybe twenty-three,
But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, as all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there I want this bird to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in my search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love - not think this labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to call, to take him back again.
I fancied that I heard them say, 'Dear Lord, thy will be done.'
For all the joy this bird shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shower him with tenderness and love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.
And should the angels call for him much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
Cathy, my deepest condolences on your precious Bluey's passing. He was blessed to have you as his mum with a loving and enriched environment and with his buddy Fifo. I'm so very sorry to hear this Cathy.
Aww, Kathy - so sad to hear about your Big Blue Gentle Giant. He was special and precious, and I know you made the right decision, hard as it was.
Rest in peace, darling boy
You have my deepest sympathies, Kathy
