R2 The Cockateil, 199? -- 2005

This morning I went to feed my cockateil, and found that he had passed away during the night.

 

R2 came to me 1999-2000ish when I was at Oberlin. We have no idea how old he was then, but I'm guessing he lived to be 10 or 12.

He loved to be scratched on the back of the head, he loved Sponge Bob, and he had a weird affinity for people's toes.

He really liked the one time Mike gave him a cheese ball, and although he hated his bird diaper, he liked the fact that it meant he got to eat Grape Nuts and hang out with the people.

He loved the color yellow, though he always ate all his pellets except the yellow ones.

He was more than just a little queer.

He liked singing songs of increasing complexity with Zayn, and he liked shiny things.

 

So, goodbye, littlest R2 friend. :angelwings We'll always think fondly of you.

I have 2 cockatiels myself, and LOVE them to death. I'm very sorry for your loss. They will usually live at least 20 years, so I wonder what took his wonderful life so soon.

I don't know why he went so soon either. He was on great quality pelleted food, so I don't think it was nutritional. But, I adopted him from someone who had been using him for breeding, and didn't know his age, so he may have been way older than we thought. He was a tough little guy, so if he was having problems he hid them well!

 

Thanks for all your thoughts!

I'm so sorry to hear about R2. :( I have always had birds in my home, but mostly budgies, and they were all so sweet in their own unique way. I'm sure he'll be missed. :bighug

I'm so sorry. :(

 

Cockatiels make lovely pets. I had a 'tiel called Zebedee who I absolutely doted on. He loved music and eating bits of toast. He died a few years back and I still miss him.

 

Rest in peace, R2 :grouphug:f_red
