    It's been a very tough 36 hours.

    Yesterday morning, Roy brought in to me my beloved Cheeky (cockatiel). He was having breathing problems with tail bobbing. Cheeky has also had a lot of feathers removes with blood and Roy thought that he had been attacked by Elsie. Roy kindly dropped everything and rushed him on a 3 hour round trip to Toll Barns an avian specialist vet.

    The Vet dismissed the injuries as a cause of his breathing problems and said that as he is 7, that he could have a tumour, but without Xrays to confirm it, the only other thing was to treat him for an infection.

    His breathing didn't get any better today and after lunch time today, Cheeky sadly passed away.

    Looking back, and going by what other members who have kindly given me support in this very difficult situation, we believe that he had a nigh fright during the night of Wednesday.

    I would also like to thank all the other forum members who have given me their full support and being there for me during these difficult couple of days

    Cheeky was my very first bird and he meant the world to me.

    I'm devastated.

    I can understand how you both will fill and my thoughts are with you, the cruel thing about birds is that they can go down so quickly. Fly free Cheeky you will always remain in the hearts and minds of your family

    Thank you all so much.
    I miss him more and more each day :crybaby2:.
    Today would have been his 7th Hatchday. I had to put all his presents in a box, I can't cope with seeing them.

    I want to say a big thank you to Cheeky's three Aunties for being there for Cheeky and me, Auntie Jude (@TomsMum), Auntie Di (@dianaT) and Auntie Tasha (@DizzyBlue) thank you xxx

    I did this for my little Cheeky.
    I miss you my baby xxxx

    I still can't believe he has gone. He may be a small bird but my word he has left a massive hole in my heart.

    So sorry sweetheart. The pain of losing a loved animal is so intense - and those who have never had that bond just don't understand.
    That little face was just beautiful, and you could tell he knew how much you loved him. Those photos towards the end of the video, of him snuggling on your shoulder, are just precious.
    Sending you lots of hugs and love. x

    @Rain He always loved a good snuggle up. X
    @plumsmum He will be well cared for with Plum and Jaffa. Cheeky loved all my birds appart from Elsie (my cockatiel) so he will be very sociable with Plum and Jaffa and all the other feathered beauties.
