I know I've not been on the forums much lately, but I do check in when I can, and enjoy looking at pictures, and reading posts people share about their lovely budgies.
It's taken me a few weeks to be able to post this as I've been so very upset - and still am. My wonderful gorgeous little Simmi passed away. I knew when I adopted him and Jenni, to try and give them a better forever home, that they weren't the youngest of budgies. I knew there might not be much time for us all together but even in that knowledge, it's still so hard to have lost them both now. A year and a half in total is not so long. I wish I'd had them for all the years of their lives.
Simmi made me smile every day, and was a precious gift in my life. The flat seems ten times bigger and a hundred times emptier without him. As does my heart. I just wanted to mention his passing as I've talked about him otherwise on here. Thank you

I'm very sorry to hear this... You have my deepest sympathies over Simmi's passing. Time will ease the grief from no longer having your budgie boy and hopefully soon, as your heart begins to heal, the memories of the good times you had with him will give you comfort.
Simmi is now reunited with Jenni and surely they are both very appreciative of all you have done for them.
Rest peace, Simmi. You were much loved and will be missed.
Hi Susan, I'm sorry to hear about the sad circumstances under which you have returned to the forums!
Simmi was much loved and all the care you gave him when he came to you was likely the best time of his life. He knew how much you and Jenni cared for him, and surely is now free of hurt or weariness on the Rainbow Bridge.
He will never truly be gone as long as his memory stays close to your heart. May time ease the grief you feel and turn your tears to fond remembrance!
Oh Susan - my heart goes out to you in this sad time. It was a wonderful thing you did in rescuing Jenni and Simmi, and giving them so much love and care for the short time you had them. It's always hard to lose these little birds, as they grab your heart, and never let go.
My deepest sympathies to you, and prayers that you may be able to invite another budgie into your home sometime soon. May your darling Simmi rest in peace.
