Nemo was bought as a handfed baby from Basically Birds in Hamilton, NJ. His mom and dad came in the store to meet all the 3-week-old babies, and they fell in love with Nemo! He sat in their hands so peacefully nibbling, with all his baby pin-feathers making him look so silly! They looked at a few others also but kept going back to Nemo, until they finally decided that he was the one for them!

Nemo died suddenly Saturday morning, August 4 at the young age of 5 months. His mom and dad are extremely distraught and are not sure how they could ever replace him. Nemo was a one-of-a-kind bird who was more of a best friend than a pet. He will be sorely missed.

Lucy was mom and dad's next bird. She was amazing--so upbeat, excited to be alive, and eager to play. She would jump to the door of the cage as soon as she saw people, even when she was only a few weeks old. She had a fatal seizure the night before she was supposed to come home. Mom and dad were visiting her almost every day in the bird store until then. They were devastated that Lucy could not come home, but know that Lucy and Nemo are playing over the rainbow bridge and having a blast with all their birdie friends.

Hi! My name is Nemo and Lucy (in memory of)

I am a Budgerigar from Highland Park, NJ.

Nemes, Mr. Nemo, Lucy pants, little miss Lucy

9 years old   M


Nemo and Lucy: millet spray, romaine lettuce

Nemo: my owners' shoulders and heads! Especially when they are standing near a mirror!

Lucy: anywhere as long as it's out of the cage!

Nemo: When you touch my wings--I let you stroke anything else, but not my wings! I'm also a little scared of the goldfish--I run away from them when mommy brings me too close!

Lucy: when mom and dad have to leave. I wanted to come home so badly!

Nemo: I love when mom and dad stroke my neck--I like to turn my head sideways and fluff up my neck feathers to make it easier! I also love when they play the run around on the couch game with me and when they let me ride on their shoulders when they do dishes--i love the sound of running water!

Lucy: I love how even though I was taking such a long time to wean, mom and dad came almost every day to visit me, and stayed for an hour or two each time even though they were insanely busy with school work and the bird store was 40 minutes away. They loved me so much!

Nemo: I won't eat any fruits or veges unless they are green! I also eat all the green seeds from my food dish first, before any of the other ones!

Lucy: everything about me is quirky. I am insane--I never stop moving and i love to play! mom thinks I must think I'm a conure.

When all else fails, just run around in circles until you fall asleep from exhaustion!.

  This is Rocky here and I am on a mission to get my good friend Lady Bird BOTW. She is a very sweet girl that has been through alot in her life and she really deserves to be BOTW. I would like to ask you if you could stop by and give her a vote everyday this week and show her how many good friends that she has out here. She also has a new sister named Dutchess and her mommy rescues abused birds and she is looking for any advise that you might have on helping her with Dutchess. Dutchess is a macaw and she was abused very badly and she is a biter. So if you could help her out with Dutchess she would really appreciate it. Thanks and PLEASE help Lady Bird out this week, she really deserves this award.... Thank you! Now to find Lady Bird, just go to the top of your page and hit the profile button, then type in Lady Bird where it says Search Name. She is the only cockatoo there the rest are macaws. Thanks again and I hope that you have a great day and I am also leaving you a vote to. Love, Rocky? R(*><~)R

  So Sorry,
We'd like to offer our deepest sympathy to Nemo's Mommy and Daddy. Here's a vote in his memory. My Mommy's little budgie, Bobbie, died almost 2 yrs. ago. Mommy had her for 2 yrs. She was a rescue and was about 3 1/2 yrs. old when she died suddenly. Mommy loved her SO much and still blows kisses to her wherever she is. Mommy will always love her. She was so sweet. My Mommy understands how much you must hurt and wants you to know that she is praying for you that God will comfort and heal your hearts. About 5 months later, she adopted me and loves me SO MUCH, too. She knows that you will love your new baby, and that she will help you with your grief. Love from Daisy (and her Mommy)

Come visit me, Finnegan - 5K...YIPPEE!! THANK YOU FRIENDS!, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - FAREWELL TO MY BELOVED FRIENDS.

  Hello from Poquita!
Thanks for the visit, Nemo! Nice to meet you. Mom and Dad had regular budgies before, but hooked up with the breeder that we came from, and she had English, so they wound up with us. Some of my cagemates drive me a little bonkers with the noise (especially Coquette - she's a real early bird), but all in all we have fun together. Take care.

Come visit me, Coquette, Kochany, Copperfield, CuJo, Columbus - RIP Aug 26/08 & Poquita.

  Hi again from Buddy
Well, I gave you another vote because my Mom went to Basically Birds and she fell in love with a little green cheeked conure yesterday! She is taking her human son there today to get it!!!She tried to talk him into a Yellow sided conure, but he didn't want to wait 4 weeks to get it..its still a little baby! You were right, Ruth is so nice and loves the birds!!Thanks so much for the tip!!!

Come visit me, Buddy !!!, Little Bird & Gracie*.
