Bittersweet 16

Kyla was a rescue and her papers (papeles) from Mexico said her birthday was July 26, 2002.

That was Kyla on her birthday in 2013 at age 11.  She will never be forgotten by those who knew her. Today would have been her 16th birthday and none of us here forgot. Kaci patiently waited

and waited

and finally the birthday celebration began with Frosty Paws for all (but me-go figure).

I’m the one who knew Kyla the longest and all I got was an extra sunflower seed. It wasn’t Kyla’s fault for cheep peeps so

Happy Birthday, Kyla

You still live on in our hearts

About Kismet

I'm a 16 year old Indian Ringneck parrot curmudgeon in New River, Arizona in the wild west country. If you're a sunflower seed, you're dinner.

  6. What a beautiful and expressive picture of your dear Kyla. You must still miss her every day. Still celebrating her birthday – what a lovely way to honor her.

  7. I know what it’s like to miss your puppy.

  8. Celebrating a life that was well lived. A life filled with love, kindness, caring, adventure, and camaraderie. Yep Kismet you were the sisterhood camaraderie. Well comedy for sure. Love you Kyla forever and back.

  9. The comment from Kaci is the best. So precious.

    Have a woof woof day and weekend. My best to your peeps. ♥

  10. They may be gone but are never forgotten. I still honor McKenzie who passed away at age 13 nearly 16 years ago. Still miss you, buddy.

  11. We love you all and wish Kyla a happy 16th. She will never be forgotten as all the others that steal our hearts. Mom has been having dreams about Duffy this week. He’s only been gone 2 months. She thinks he is just letting her know he’s around still (or Mom needs to lay off the summer sangria)

  12. Happy Birthday over the Bridge to our dear friend Kyla. Keep on celebrating her day. We do with all of our companions over the Bridge.

    • It comes to all of us-We couldn’t save Kyla from her fate and we can’t even save any living thing from it. As a long lived parrot, I predict you’ll be remembered fondly also and I’ll make it my business to see to it..

  13. sorry I am just seeing this now…such a sweetie and we are so sorry. I know how hard it is. (((hugs)))
