I'm so sad. So so sad. Oh so oh so sad.
:( :( :(
I know just a few days ago I didn't have very many nice things to say about Jadis (okay, none at all), but I was just trying to be funny. I really did love my bird.
I got a phone call a few hours ago from the boys who are taking care of our pets and he said that when he went to take care of them today he found Jadis drowned in the toilet. That's the second beloved pet I've had drown in a dang toilet. The first was sweet Li'l Chinchilla's three week old baby, Li'l Chinwilla:
|I know, accidents happen. I never left instructions that said to keep the toilet seat down. Then again, I never thought Jadis would drown. He loved taking baths!|
The poor boy was so distraught when he called. He's an animal lover just like me and I know how terrified and sad he must have been to call me with the news. In a way having him be so sad is comforting. If the person taking care of my pets hadn't cared, that would have made things worse than they are.
I just keep playing over and over in my mind Jadis struggling to get out of the toilet, there wasn't anything for him to grab onto with his beak or talons, and eventually succumbing and drowning. My poor heart. I can't get it out of my mind. I hope he didn't struggle for hours. My poor Jadis.
Why oh why did I get his wings clipped?
I took a video of him a few weeks ago. Whenever we took a shower he'd "fall with style" into the bathroom and climb up the curtain to be right next to the nozzle.
