This is about a bird.
A few months ago my dad brought home a pet cockatiel he aquired from a client who was trying to find it a good home. Every weekend when I’d come home to visit my parents house, I’d sit and talk with it, feed it, and whistle and sing to it. I kind of loved that bird, and he was really responsive and would always sing back to me as well.
Cockatiels are really smart birds and need a few hours of attention every day. I did notice though my family was very busy and didn’t really have time in the day to spend with it. They felt bad that he was just stuck in his cage all day, and spoke a few times of letting it fly away, or finding it a new home, especially my teenage sister. I specifically told her not to let it fly away bc it would be unsafe for him, and he would probably die.
Well, when I went home this weekend, I found out that she had released him outside.
The problem is, for some reason this has really been bothering me for a few days now. Like i’m genuinely upset. I can’t get it off my mind and i’m having feelings of guilt knowing that he’s probably dead somewhere, or suffering. I keep hoping he’ll fly back home, but I know thats probably far from possible.
I’m even having freaking dreams about this bird now. Ugh. This may sound silly, I know, but Idk I just needed to rant…i cant seem to get over it :(
