It is with such a very heavy heart that I bring you news of our little Birdie's passing on Tuesday, April 26.  For three weeks prior to that we began a fight which sadly she just couldn't win...  We learned that her time was short due to congestive heart failure but hoped that medication might ease symptoms and help sustain her happiness. Sadly, pneumonia set in and sonograms/bloodwork also showed that her liver wasn't looking well at all.  We could see her happiness and spirit fading and knew that even with further testing, poking and prodding that we had little chance of keeping her comfortable.  My husband and I worked tirelessly to ensure we weren't cutting her life short before making the most difficult decision of our lives.  It has rocked our household and I think it will be quite a long time before the aftershocks are gone.

Birdie was able to be with us for her final moments, in her home, in her little bed feeling safe and loved.  

I want to thank you all for being so helpful and supportive when we brought Birdie home.  She was the matriarch of our home for the past two and half years.  Not only was she a rescue, but she also rescued us.  Yes, one of THOSE...she was life altering.  Wonderful.  Wise.  Simply happy.  Therapeutic.  Larger than life.  We miss her dearly and will continue to love her beyond all boundaries of time and worlds.  

Thank you for making it all possible for us.

Many hugs to you!
