Even Parakeets Deserve to be Remembered

I don’t think of myself as the crazy scrapbook lady, but maybe I am.
And I am paying tribute to my friend, Emo.
This handsome birdie passed away during the night.
We got him about ten years or so ago to be a pet to our cockatiel and he did such a great job.
When she ate, he ate.
When she groomed, he groomed.
When she slept, he slept.
He kept her calm.
He knew he was a bird. He knew she was a bird.
She did not know she was a bird. She wasn’t sure what he was.
But I know what he was.
An American Blue Teacup Eagle!
He rang his bell like he was born for the Salvation Army.
He ate lettuce with gusto.
He sang and watched the birds outside.
He was our sweet boy and he will be missed.

Thank you for indulging my scrapbook journal entry above.
This crazy scrapbook lady doesn’t mind if it seems crazy to pay tribute to her friend Emo.

Oh Mary, sorry for your loss. We love our fur (or feathered) babies, don't we. Great tribute.

Sorry for your loss! Pets have a place in our hearts and should have a place in our scrapbooks, too!

Thank you, Jeanie and Mimi,
It really is sad. I still check to see if he's covered in the evening. Thank you for your kindness. I really appreciate you.
