R.I.P. Cricket

Early this morning our Maximillian Pionus parrot Cricket suddenly passed away. We don't know why. I found her on the bottom of her cage (she occasionally fell off her perch, but didn't like to climb her ladder so I would put her up where she belonged), acting like she might be choking. She was weak, and couldn't grasp her perch, so I tried to see if I could dislodge anything from her throat.

She bit me several times while I was trying to help her (something she never did), and vomited some. We worked on her for about a half hour, and I gave her mouth to beak. Alas, we finally admitted she was gone.

With the kind of year we've been having, Cricket's death is just one more crushing blow.
