Our sad news


Our wonderful little cockatiel Mr. Kaja died yesterday. We had him for 27 years and he was an absolute pleasure to have around. He was smart and entertaining. We humans underestimate these birds intelligence. He was a big part of our lives . Although we knew that one day we will have to face this moment it did not make it any easier.

Rest in peace our little friend. We will miss you dearly but you’ll stay in our hearts forever.

Losing such a dear pet and companion will leave a big gap, I'm sure. Mr Kaja will have understood he was much loved and cared for, Klahanie, and you can take consolation from that.

Wildrose, he was incredibly bright and curious little bird and wanted to be involved in our daily life. It's still feel awkward without him and probably will for a while.. Thank you for your comment.
