Rest in peace, my Kitty bird.

My sweet Kitty bird passed away today at 6:00 pm. I'm so sad. I'm going to miss her so much. She was such a good bird.
This is a repeat of an art journal page I did last summer after I had a dream that a hawk ate Kitty. I wrote that I would just die if anything happened to her. I know she's not suffering any more, but I am just so sad. I want to tell you all a little more about her.

My parents gave Kitty to me for Christmas when I was 13, and we grew up together. She was really feisty and liked to bite. She didn't bite me because I knew her so well and understood her. One of her favorite things to do was shred paper and a lot of my homework in high school was handed in with Kitty bitemarks all along the edges because she would hang out with me when I did my homework. She was really curious and loved finding little nooks to climb into, and especially drawers and socks. She laid a lot of eggs and when she would lay an egg, I'd call her a big fat hen. She wasn't afraid of anyone or anything. Every night when I turned off the lights, she made a hooting whistle sound to say "goodnight." I think that's what I'll miss the most, is her saying goodnight to me every night. She was a good bird.



My friends and I made this video featuring Kitty for a project in high school. I'm going to miss her so much!

I'm so sorry Kira! :( It is hard to lose a pet, especially someone you've had in your life for that long. I"ll be thinking about you.

I'm very sorry about Kitty, Sweetie :( I recently lost my cat, Princess Franki and I understand how hard that is, so I'm sending you lots of good vibes from CA.

I did love your video though, so cute (especially during the end credits). I'm sensing a bit of a Tarantino influence ;)

Aww, Kira, this made me cry. I'm so sorry. I wish there was something I could say to make it all better. I am thinking about you!

I'm really sorry about your bird. I know what it's like to lose a pet, there's not much anyone can say to make things better, just keep your chin up!
