Today, my pet “green parrot” named Mr. Mithu expired due to some health issues. The parrot was with us since four years and he was a talking parrot used to speak at least 60 plus words and sentences in English and Urdu language. He was sharp and intelligent as well as innocent always mix up even with the strangers. He started plucking feathers in July this year and doctor gave him antibiotics with anti depression medicines but health deteriorated day by day. Doctor diagnosed high typed virus and finally he lost his life.
I never knew before his death that how feelings are developed so strong for the animals or birds and you consider them as part of your family. How you miss them even after their death. He was with us since he was just 15 days old. I have posted two of his videos on my YouTube channel.
Also, one thing that i found is that these animals are the gift of God because they in form of a tool / toy help you in overcoming your own depression and loneliness may be because of their actions and physical presence in form of a true companion.
