    Sorry to heat about Jake. It's always hard to lose a friend.
  • So sorry to hear the news. We are in a similar situation as our cat of 17 years is in the final stages of chronic renal failure and his demise appears to be close. We just need to be thankful for the time we have shared with the beloved members of the family and treasure the memories.

    My heart felt sympathies to you.One of the things that make parrots so special is their longevity, which also gives them plenty of time to find their way into your lives and hearts, making their passing like loosing a long time friend and family member. I'm sorry. :(

    I shall miss him on your pictures! Never had to look to see who was posting the great looking food when I saw his little green form perched on the glass.

    Real sorry for your loss. 25 years is a long time and must be really tough. On the other hand, 25 years is a really long time and you're very fortunate. ;)

    I am so sorry I hate that you lost a member of your family!
  • So sorry to hear that Deane. Jake was indeed a fixture of this forum and he will be missed. See you in 6 weeks or so, and we'll raise a glass in his memory.

    What a wonderful tribute to a lovely creature. You have lived better because of him. RIP.
  • Sorry to hear of the loss of Jake, JL. You have given him a wonderful life. It is a loving tribute to him that you have shown us in all those great pictures you have posted.
    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    I can relate to your loss... I few of my "buddies" have gone 'west' over the years, and my consolation has been the love & trust that was shared while we were companions. May God bless you!!
  • Sorry to hear that, JL. I remember the sad day my blue-fronted Amazon, Louro, went on to Bird Heaven. Condolences.
  • I am sorry to hear about Jake. I enjoyed seeing him in the pics of your cooks. Pets are a special part of our lives.
