Gracie - RIP

Rest in peace my feathered friend!  I've had Gracie since the early 80's and she has traveled with us to Florida for the past 11 years!  I will miss her!!!!!




Gracie loved her whipped cream or ice cream!!!



And she loved to get her bath outside!



She would play with anything she could get her claws on!



And she loved Mandy!  This is outside while in Florida one year.  Gracie would throw food down to Mandy for her to eat!



And she traveled so well...she would sit in her crate at the hotel and talk up a storm!!


My heart is broken but I'm sure Gracie is playing with Mandy!

 No, it's "not just a bird"...they are our feathered friends......and I will miss her (and her mess!).....

Sorry to hear this Robbie. Gracie & I were not close, but I surely did respect her space. And such a pretty (girl?)

So sorry to hear this Robbie.
I lost my grey a couple of years ago and I know how sad you must be. I'm pretty sure she was older than me and I'm...well...no spring chicken!
I think people don't realize for long these feathered kids live. If only our fur-babies could live so long.
Sending you healing thoughts.

I am sorry to read this post. It's always so hard when one of our pet family leaves us. I always thought she was a cool bird!
