Say, what?

Another one bites the dust.
Parakeet Major Bird has gone to birdie heaven.

Major had been feeling puny for a couple of months, and I had to decide whether to spend $45 plus meds at the vet for a $20 bird. Turns out I was able to find birdie antibiotics at a pet store, and I forced-fed poor Major dose after dose with an eyedropper for a week.

It didn't any good. When I found him on the bottom of the cage this weekend, shivering and no longer eating, sadly, I knew it was time.

I had him euthanized for $35.

But it didn't stop there. Later, Major's buddy, Minor, looked soooo sad that I went out and spent another $20 on a birdie girlfriend.

And, the cycle continues ...

i like Majorette. It's doesn't roll off the tongue, but I'm still getting confused and calling Minor Major... so it just might work.
