My beloved Angel 2 passed away on June 8, 2010. I’ve had a very hard time accepting that he’s gone. He had the sweetest soul.
Every night I would turn on the television in my bedroom and tell him, “Jay’s on.” He and Mozart would hop onto their favorite perches ~ like a couple of old men plopping into their favorite recliners with a cold brew in hand. It was hysterical, and I deeply regret I never caught it on video.
They absolutely loved Kevin Eubanks and knew Jay Leno’s theme song by heart. They were amazing music critics with definite tastes. If they didn’t like a tune, they’d squawk something fierce. If they loved it, they quickly picked up on it and chirped along.
The bird lady at the pet store said his beak issues indicated he probably had kidney issues. I think he simply decided that Jay Leno without Kevin Eubanks wasn’t fun anymore.
Rest in peace, Angel 2. You brought us all tremendous joy.
