Everyone's doing okay. Mao seems to be completely better, eating like a horse today and we got a new partner for the dowager. A little green guy, I hope they get along. The blue one's always been a little bit hostile and spazzy, I hope he doesn't bully the new parakeet. I got a sore throat and a haircut. How're you doing?

It's so good to hear that! yaymao!!
I'm doing well. Kiddo and I took a hike today, and discovered a beautiful area of the river.
I hope you're getting my emails too- and I hope the card makes it to you on your birthday. It might be a day late, I can't predict snail mail very well!

I hope they get along well, too. Budgies surprise me all the time.

Tea with lemon and honey, shoves. Tea with lemon and honey. Feel better soon, because you have to celebrate!

I'm so proud. *tear*

I will! And I haven't been checking my email but I will. I drank so much tea today and watched the parakeets try to get along. They seem to be warming up a little- the size difference! The new guy's sooo much littler.
I'm getting my first tattoo tomorrow,this [link] on my wrist.

oh baby.
i read what you wrote to cheeky and i'm so sorry she didn't make it. you did the best you could for her and i'm sure there's no birdie who would have lived a happier existence than with you.
and you gave her a beautiful send off too. i'm so proud of you. she's got a little bit of you and your family to take her back Home.

and your cat's a toughie, yeah? i hope she pulls through. i'll be keeping you both in my thoughts. hang in there while she needs you, and i'll be there when you need me.

(i'll be online today as much as i can. we've got a big filming gig starting tonight so i'll be travelling, but i'm trying to put skype on my phone so i can call you when we're there. i love you. <3)

Oh sweetheart I love you so much
I was so scared at first but my cat seems to be eating a little again. We're still giving her medicine and force-feeding her, but she also ate a bit of her food and some hamburger my dad cooked and it feels a bit like a good sign.
I'm gonna see if I can send off your hat in time for your birthday.

I saw it but I can't really read it properly at the moment
My parakeet passed away just a couple hours after I wrote you
My dad took the cat to the vet today and she's having liver problems again, the same kind that nearly killed her before. We had to force feed her and give her medicine with a syringe.
I don't know what to do I really can't handle this

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know your parakeets are very dear to you. You're a good owner- don't feel bad about that aspect of it.

Take deep breaths, cry, call your friends, and go outside. Swings. Music.
it's ok- really, it will be. You have friends to lean on, and we're all here to support you.

What's your cat's name? Is it ok if I say a little prayer for her?

I could tell my parakeet wasn't going to make it through the day, she just got quickly worse. At least she's not struggling any more. I wrapped her in one of my grandfather's handkerchiefs, put her in the cigar box where I kept my marbles, and put in the acorns and leaves I picked up from the park. We buried her this morning. The worst part was just watching helplessly as she was dying...

And yes, please say a little prayer for her if you can. Her name is Mao and she's like a little sister.

She knew who you were, and she understood. She knew you were there, near her, and did the best you could. Birds understand so much. She was likely so glad you were there.

You gave her a meaningful and honoring final rest.
It's painful, but that is also a gift. You're not dead inside, and that makes you a good person.

I lost a tomcat that was like a little brother, so I can kind of understand.
I will do that.
