Post: Blue Fronted Amazon, "Hooter"
Posted by Mac on 8/31/10
Tonight when you check on your amazon parrot before you go
to bed, if you can hold her close again, do it. Sometimes
they leave you in the morning before you get back to them.
I had the privilege of sharing her life for just 8 1/2
years. She was thought to be "between 3 and 4 years, but no
older than 7 years". However, the necropsy said Hooter was
between 45 and 50 years old. The equivalency of CHF is what
Her cage is empty. I threw all her toys away. I couldn't
bare to look at them. We have three other non amazon birds.
However, my home is like a tomb. My heart is broken. At
first, I didn't believe she was gone. Then I was angry she
left me. Now I am just feel so unloved and alone; and, I
wonder who will pull the hairs out of my ears. I miss her so
much. I sit and hold the little cedar box that holds her
remains and feel so empty and lost...
I am writing this, because I am wondering if someone
understands and can explain what's wrong with me. My wife
broke down, screaming and crying. I can't seem to cry.
