Parrot died, grieving partner
I have had my two female blue & gold macaws ages 15 & 16 since babies...same Goliath cage. Yesterday, (Sunday) I returned home after a few hours, and my 15 year olds leg was injured and bleeding. I tried to clean it, there was a lot of blood...then I rushed her to the emergency animal hospital. She seemed fine when we got there, and then they said she went into cardiac arrest and died while we were there.
They tried CPR. I am so heartbroken, I don't know what to do. But my main concern now is her female partner. They loved each other, slept on the same perch...In a huge cage...many toys and perches...a human can stand inside. The cage is in front of a big window, so she can see outside. I have soft music playing. I am home with her most of the day and we have two dogs...so all other activity remains the same. But the two birds practically moved as one. Preened each other...talked...everything.
My question is...how do I deal with my 16 year old baby that is left behind? How can I help her with the grieving process? Is there anything else I can do? My heart hurts. Thank you.
