R.I.P. Emma

Little Emerald, 1/22/1991-7/28/2008

Late last night when I got home from the airport with my sister in tow, there was a cool wind blowing, so I went upstairs to lower the window for Emma. She was laying on the floor of her cage, gone. It was quite a shock, as yesterday she had been chirping at me and eating like always. This morning, my office is achingly quiet. Good-bye, little friend.

That's it for now from . . .

:( I'm sure sorry to hear about Emma! I had a little Peachface that I hand fed, named Bill, he was one of the most personable birds I had ever had.

So sorry that she is gone. Pets do have a way of taking hold of our hearts.

Sorry to hear about Emma...It's hard to lose any pet. Sounds like she had a good LONG life though, you're very lucky to have had her so long, that's quite old for a lovie :)

I am sorry Emma has left you for now. I know birds hide their illnesses usually until it is too late - they are amazing critters! Peace.

Sharon said...

Not easy, even when you think you're ready. Our pets are part of our daily rhythms and we lose a part of ourselves when we lose them. So sorry Michelle. You've had a rough year, petwise.

What a shame, it's possibly the hardest thing about having pets. I'm sure she had a very long and very happy life with you though x
