Yesterday, early afternoon, I came back inside after being handed a package with things for my budgies, and the room was eerily quiet, and the budgies were nowhere to be found.
I then remembered, that whilst outside, I could hear parakeet type noises, and realised thay had got out, which has never happened before.
I rang the RSPCA, and the local wildlife hospital, that take in pets where the owner is unknown, in case they were handed in, at some point, and gave them my number. I also called our lcal vet practices, and put the cage outside.
My Mum and I searched, and at times they called out.
We then saw something, taht made my heart stop. A magpie was chasing one of my budgies. Luckily after 2 attempts he gave up.
At 9:20pm, I went outside, as I could hear one of them, and I wanted to see if I had any idea what tree they were in.
To my surprise, one of them (Lightning) was sitting on the path by another block, looking totally exhausted.
I quickly scooped her up, and took her inside.
The vet checked her over today, and said to keep her rested in her cage.
Thunder is still oustanding 24 hours later, and can no longer be heard in the nearby trees, so I am loing hope of finding him.
I really miss him.
Above is the picture I use for my avatar.
