I lost my sweet girl on 5/10/10. Hate it and am so upset. She was my daily computer buddy and was so happy and excited to come out of her cage to be with me. A tumor took her away from me.
I will always miss and love her. I up loaded my favorite pictures of her, having a blast bathing. In the photo section.

  Hello Patti,
When my Mom gave you the rainbow bridge poem it was the wrong one, but My Mom has found the one for Parrots, which is more appropriate. We are giving you a vote, you were a pretty Pacific Parrolet and you have brightened the golden color of the rainbow.

The Rainbow Bridge for Parrots:
Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When a bird dies that has been especially close to someone here, that bird goes to the Rainbow Bridge.

At the Rainbow Bridge there are meadows and hills and beautiful trees of all kinds where all our special friends can fly and climb, hang and flap, hop and run, jump and play, squawk and squeal and sing together.

There is plenty of good food, including grapes and peanuts, ice cream and cheese, spaghetti and especially lots of pizza. There is crystal clear water in brooks and springs are filled with water as well as every kind of delicious fresh fruit juice.

One warm spring even runs full of the coffee they can now drink their fill of without hearing a single no-no. There is lots of glorious sunshine, and sweet warm rain when they want it and our friends are warm and comfortable and totally at peace.

All the birds who had been ill or old are restored to health and vigor and to their natural incredible beauty. Their feathers shine, their wing feathers are whole, and their eyes gleam once again with vitality.

Those who were hurt or maimed or ignored or broken-hearted are made whole and strong and free of fear again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by.

The birds are happy and content..... except for one small thing - they each miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind when the bird returned home. Still they all fly and play happily and safely and noisily together - even the greys, lovebirds, wild birds of every kind, humming birds, senegals, the tiniest finches and the grandest macaws.

But the day comes for each bird when he suddenly stops and looks far into the distance. His body freezes and his bright eyes are intent as he watches and listens in silence. Suddenly he begins to fly from the group, soaring over the green grass, his wings flapping harder and harder!

You have been spotted - and he shrieks to you and then calls your name and his own and cries again and again and as he rushes toward you.

When you and your bird finally meet, you cling to each other in joyous reunion, knowing you will never be parted again.

Your face and your fingers - and even your toes - are covered with beak nibbles and soft ecstatic kisses. Your hair is preened by that special beak, and his head bends under your fingers to invite your touch. Your hands again find their way under beloved wings, to caress the downy softness beneath.

You look once more into the trusting eyes of your companion-so long gone from your physical life on earth, but never for an instant absent from your heart.

Your tears of joy are gently brushed away by those beloved wings... and

  Meeting you on the Rainbow Bridge!
Hi Patti,
here is a vote for you, you were a beautiful light yellow budgie. i am sending a copy of the poem from pet loss support, it helps heal your broken heart.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

  Hi Patti--
WOW! That play perch is really something...Maybe next time my mom decides to remodel my cage, she'll try one of those. I'm pretty persnickity, tho. I have a a boing that I won't go near...and a sleepy tent that I've never been in....Mom has pretty much given up on buying stuff...she just makes toys for me out of stuff around the house...

I see you met Divo. He's a cool dude, and his Mom's real nice...his flock mate Falco is a nice girl, too!

  Hey there, Patti
Tooth recommended that I come by to meet you. He said you were a pretty cool parrotlet and that I should stop and say hi. So you're yellow like Tooth, huh? Maybe that's why he told me to see you --I like yellow birds! Here's a vote, fly by and see me sometime? Divo

  Hi Patti--
Play perch, huh? Sounds like fun, but I never let my Moms know that I play with toys...they might leave me in my cage longer, and that would never do. I do chew things, tho, cause they can see the evidence! Mom says she can't join birdiecommandos just yet, because she has too much blogging to do everyday. Maybe in the summertime or when she gets tired of her three facebook games she might...She's pretty much given up on ZooToo.com since it's been overrun by cat owners--hee hee....

How much my Mom liked commando birdies.com----yes, I know it said no hoomans, but she doesn't follow rules either! That's why we get along so well. She especially liked the eleven demandments...she said I could have written them myself. And if they ever want to offer a course in fake bathing, I should offer my services!

Boy, it must be exceptionally noisy at your house these days! Your poor parronts probably have their hands full, so no wonder you aren't getting enough Mommy time. Hopefully the interloper will soon be gone and things will be back to normal before too long. Miss you, sweetie!

Gee-I am sorry to hear about your Dad..hope he is feeling better, but it must have been exciting to ride in the big red truck! Commando Birdies? No, I haven't heard of them, but Mom says I'd fit in just fine, especially this morning because I am having fits about everything that gets anywhere near me! Except now that she's typing (which I normally hate) I'm on her shoulder grinding my beak. Go figure!

  Hi Patticakes--
Thank your mom for all the info. It pretty mmuch confirmed what my mom thought. I don't think she'll be getting any more Parrotlets soon, because we have 6 zebra finches too. They really belong to my other mommy, but two big cages in the house is all we can fit right now.
I'm surprised you tolerate Dirty Harry. Sometimes my Mom takes me to visit her friend who has 2 'teils. Mostly they ignore me and I hide from them, but sometimes they get curious and try to get a closer look. That makes me nervous!

  Hi Patti--
I was thinking of you this morning, while I had breakfast and chewed on the newspaper....Does your Mom keep all of her P'lets together in the same cage, or do you have your own houses? Are you paired off? Do you get along with each other? My Mom secretly wants to get me some friends, but she's afraid I'll be jealous!

  Good Morning Patticakes--
Boy, you're up early! I was, too. My Mom was surprised--she thought I'd sleep in, since the Uncles keep way later hours than my Moms do. But I was rarin' to go--flew a few laps around my cage and right out onto Mom's shoulder before she could even stick her finger out.
Mom loaded one other picture for your Mom, but a lot of my pictures are on discs, so she has to look them up to load them. OR your Mom could go to Zootoo.com. I've got gazillions of pictures there...some of them are photoshopped, too, so they have me and some of my friends doing weird things like being knights, or watching the Kentucky Derby with the Queen. Can you tell my Mom gets bored at work sometimes??

  Hi Patticakes!!
I think you're pretty, too!
Wow,what a week! My moms came and got me real late last night, and I almost didn't want to get up and go home with them, but then one of them made a nice warm cup for me in her hands, and I got to ride home in that, instead of my travel cage, so it wasn't so bad! At least I don't have to worry about that big green eclectus landing on top of my cage anymore!!My Moms were away, and I stayed with Uncle Mikey and Uncle Timmy and Einstein and Copernicus. Einstein is a LOUD eclectus, and Copernicus is a psychotic lorikeet. They're both way bigger than me, but I don't let them know that....
About my name..well, I'm a biter..I mostly just nibble and chew now, but every morning when I wake up, I make sure to bite my Mom a couple of times to make sure she knows who's boss...and if I get annoyed, I bite. I used to bite all the time...My Moms had to always have a bitey-rag handy for me. Now I'm a lot calmer, but I still get my chomps in every now and then! Last night I put a hole in Mom's new T-shirt that she just bought, just to let her know I wasn't pleased about her being away.....I have to be careful, tho, cuz if I bite too hard, I get banished to my cage for a time-out!

You sure are a lot like me!! Except I dunno, do you have a blue rump? Mine is sort of turquoise...everything my mom reads says that females aren't supposed to have a colored rump patch, but since I don't really have a blue eye-stripe, sometimes she worries about my gender identity. Parronts are so silly sometimes.....
I'll tell you about my name next time--my mom's at work and she has to keep it short!
Anyhow it's nice to meet you and all your brothers and sisters--you must have lots of fun with them---here's a vote from me!
