I woke up this morning and Pan didn't look good. Phoned the vet and got him an appointment for 1pm, but I wasn't sure he could wait five hours, I was really scared. He didn't make it. At 9:15 he started to have a seizure and flipped his head back, with his wings spread out and began to shake. Phoned the vet again and they said we could take him in asap, but as soon as we started the car he began to thrash and try to fly. Then he died in my hands.
I really miss him so much, he was my best friend, and I'm really depressed. I dont know how to feel about this, I know there was something I could've done to prevent it and I'm really upset he was so young.
He left behind his mate Chiquita who I feel really sad for. They were so bonded you couldnt even take one to another room without the other squawking on the top of their lungs. She doesn't even know she will never see him again. What makes me even more upset is that he leaves behind two chicks, five and three days old. I was not planning on breeding them... The eggs were unexpected.. I feel so bad he had to die this way/ The vet said its most likely he exhausted himself and ate only for the chicks and not himself, as well as the avian biologist I know who said he was most likely nutritionally depleted. I'm so sad I didn't realize, he never showed any signs and I didn't want to bother him during the nesting process.. I feel so irresponsible and like a very bad bird owner. Just two days ago he was puffing up and splashing around in his mist shower...
rest in peace Pan, I love you so much. I will miss your songs and singing with you, your cute face and eyes, your soft feathers, and just knowing you exist...
