Today was one of my rare days off. I was glad, because today Donna found her beloved pet cockateil “Emily” motionless on the bottom of her cage. I don’t even need to say how terribly upset Donna was, and those of you who know Donna, know what a compassionate and kind hearted person she is also.
I’m gone much of the time, and when Donna would come home at night, Emily was the one to greet her “hello” when she walked in the door. I know the silence now will be very difficult.
If you would like, you can leave an uplifting message, and although it won’t bring Emily Back, it will be encouraging to know that her friends do care and don’t think she’s being silly.
