Losing our closest loved ones is never easy. It does not matter if we are “prepared” for it or not. The sorrow that we experience is not strictly limited to the loss of a human loved one, either. Animals also have the ability to grieve. Did you know that parrots are some of the most emotionally intelligent creatures on the planet? When they experience a loss, they feel a deep sense of sadness.
Sinbad the parrot was recently forced to say goodbye to his owner of 25 years. The two have developed a strong connection and share a close bond. While Sinbad is normally a more chatty bird, he understands how serious this situation has become and is remaining silent. This is a sign of the immense empathy that birds feel for their owners.
They experience depression when they lose a loved one, in much the same way that a human does. There are even anti depressant medications for birds that are designed for safe consumption. The moment that you are about to witness was captured by the woman’s daughter. She is getting ready to say goodbye to the world and Sinbad is not going to miss it for the world.
He will remain by her side and let her know just how much she has meant to him. Sinbad even makes his way onto the woman’s chest. She lets him know that she loves him very much and if you can make it through this part of the clip without bursting into tears, you are much stronger than we could ever hope to be. The clip has already generated over one million views and for very good reason.
The bond that we share with our pets is not a bond that can always be put into words. That is why videos like these exist. They serve as a way for us to relate to others who love their pets in the same manner. This is one of the most tender moments that we have ever seen and anyone who has ever had a pet that they truly cared about is certainly able to identify with this woman.
Please share this video with your closest friends and loved ones. They will definitely appreciate the bond that has been formed between this bird and his owner. We wish Sinbad all of the best going forward and hope that his owner will resting in peace
