When I Saw That My gut SANK. Most of us know what its like to loose a pet Its crappy. But life goes on. You win some you loose some.

I just checked snakes and read your post. That is the saddest thing I've read in a long time, I really don't know what to say - but I really feel for you.

Just on Saturday, I saw a bunch of mollocun cockatoos, and macaws - at a 29 year zoo in a school that was closing. It broke my heart to realize that those birds were having to be rehomed, away from their "one person" - who they were really bonded to.

I was sad just taking some reptiles out of there, I felt like the birds knew exactly what was going on.

I hadn't realized before Saturday how close people and birds could get, I think possibly closer than dogs.

On Sunday, I was discussing how close parrots could get to people, with a herpetologist friend of mine who lives here in town.

If we were home more, I would keep parrots. I'd be afraid how close I'd get to them, however and can't imagine what I'd do if I found myself in the same situation that you were in.

I just recently lost my pet bird Clipper ( a Quaker ) to something that used to be so normal. This is how my stroy goes.

Clipper came to our house as us being a second owner. Sure we'd have our problems, but somehow things between myself, Clipper, and the rest of us started getting better. Clipper and his famous dance brought joy to us and he loved us laughing. Every mornin', we'd wake up and we'd let Clipper onto my brothers desk where he'd jam away and get his mornin' love. Pretty much became a routine. But, unfortunately, one mornin', Clipper woke up, danced and our dog Max instinctly jumped up and knocked lil' Clipper off. Clipper went into shock and within a minute, he passed off in my hands. I fought back the tears but I find myself missin' Clipper even though he stayed with us for a mere month. Clipper will never be forgotten and hes touched my heart and I see NumNum has touched yours.

I'm just happy to say that our birds are partyin' it up together right now and enjoying some sunflower seeds.

BAZ, my condolences because I know what its like loosin' a bird.

Thanks guys... lesson is... never put a bird or any other animal that has no way of escaping danger outside unsupervised even if you think its safe... there are too many unknown factors.

So sorry Baz. I am sure that NumNum knew just how much it hurt you to take away his pain. Birds have a sixth sense about us humans and what we're feeling. Hope you feel better soon, and know that all things happen for a reason. Take care.

Thats really too bad Baz, im sure that it was horrible to find him like that, then having to put him down must have multiplied it by a million. Maby someday you can find a new one juts like him.

PS What kind of parrot was he?

My deepest condolences on the loss of NumNum. He really was a beautiful bird, and I can understand how you feel. I lost my Senegal Parrot, Gilligan, to teflon poisoning, exactly one week after my boyfriend died. (my neighbours were cooking with teflon pans, and when heated past a certain point, teflon emits a poisonous gas) I wasn't able to cry for weeks. I do have to commend you for ending NumNum's pain. It shows true love if a person is willing to do that for their pet, and I am sure he would have rather gone in the hands of the person he loved, instead of a strangers.

RIP NumNum, Gone but not forgotten.
