Dearest Sonny and flock
It is with a heavy heart that I come to tell you about my fister, Peachy, who we fear is so sick she will not last in our world much longer. Last December running through early January/February, she became I'll. After taking her to the vet she was put on antibiotics for a respiratory infection, which unfortunately, Canaries are susceptible to.

With some quiet time, heating pad, antibiotics,and mama's lovin' she gradually improved to where she was eating great, singing, hopping around, flying in her cage...all the things a happy Canary should do. The infection left her with a few "coordination challenges" but other than that, when she moved into our room in March, she was a very happy camper. Last week we were so thrilled to come back onto the BC and tell you all about how well Peachy is, when all the while, she was getting sick all over again. The infection is back full-swing and Miss Peach-Peach was quickly moved into mom and dad's room, put back on antibiotics, given a heating pad...but this time she sleeps all day and unlike last time, her appetite is diminishing.

Mom feels awful. She feeds us a balanced diet of pellets, seeds, veggies, fruit, grains. She cleans or cages. Vacuums our mess. Never uses bad chemicals or sprays or uses Teflon or burns candles. We have a sunshine lamp, a HEPA filer, various toys, treats and perches of various materials and diameters. We go to the doc regularly. She has stacks of magazines and books about taking care of anything with wings. She talks to us, plays with us and loves us to tears. And yet she cannot see why, when she has worked so hard to keep us happy and healthy, how our little singer can be ready to die so young. Yet there are birds out there who live years and years in conditions no living thing should endure and ignored by mean people who get bored of their "pets." How can they live so long through that kind of suffering, yet mom has lavished Peachy and I with only the best, and still she is being taken from our flock?

Yes, we still have faith in miracles. But we also love her so much that we only want her to be happy and suffer no more. Please say a little prayer for her that if and when she leaves us, Peachy-Peach soars over that Rainbow Bridge and sings the loudest, happiest Canary song that even Mommy can hear. We will let you know any news and thank you for keeping us in your thoughts. We luv ya!
