Felix “Squish” the Budgie (4 May 2013–30 December 2019)

My budgie of six and a half years died peacefully on 30 December 2019 in Sydney, Australia. He lived a full life; he was clicker-trained and spoke over 40 words and phrases; he travelled to three states and had been on countless road trips singing along to Prince I Wanna Be Your Lover.

He was very loved by friends and family, adored by those who met him. He left an oversized impact on our lives well beyond his micro size. He will be missed dearly.
