. . Four months after this video, Velcro was killed by a hawk on 5/20/14 as she flew to the deck to visit me. 2.5 became totally depressed (me too), withdrawn, she mourned for months, day after day staring out her window for hours, desperately waiting for Velcro to return. 2.5 would come in the house and call and call to Velcro hoping she'd answer. It was so sad to see. They had spent much time being in love in the house.
. . Eventually, many months later, 2.5 finally slowly accepted Newbie as her new partner, but... It's - just - not - the same. The intense loving and non-stop hugging and kissing is just not there with Newbie. There is NO doubt that 2.5 still continues to mourn the loss of Velcro (me too).
2.5 is a Homer Pigeon now 9yo.
Velcro was a Voorburg Shield Cropper 8yo
Newbie is a Modena 3yo.
2.5 and Velcro on hutch. They'd come in the house and spend most of the day enjoying each others company.
