For those of you who have read my blog before, you will know that we all very much enjoyed our family member, Bud the Bird.
Bud was incredibly long-lived and, excuse the expression, truly a tough old bird. He survived many years with our cats, Xena and Zoe, both determined to eat him. But in addition to his stoic and brave side, Bud had a joyous side as well. Bud loved to sing. He sang a lot and his voice filled our house. He enjoyed singing with the birds outside. His favorite was to sing when Jim played the piano. There were several pieces Jim played that were irresistible to Bud.
Bud passed away last evening. He was simply gone. No lingering illness. I found him lying peacefully in the bottom of his cage.
