Mr. Zippers passed away this afternoon after a heroic fight to cheat death which began back in July.
We thought he had made a full recovery, but he began to show signs to the contrary right after hurricane IKE. I suspect the stress of that event and the days that followed were probably too much for him.
We adopted Mr. Zippers in 1999. He came to be a beloved pet and member of our quirky little family. Ultimately, he was Cynthia’s bird. Mr. Zippers hated me and tried to bite me any chance he could.
Still, I loved that little guy.
We both did.
Mr. Zippers will be sorely missed.
Fly High, Mr. Zippers

Sorry for your loss. He seemed like a great little guy.
I’m sorry to hear this, Jay. 🙁
Sad news. Sorry to hear it.
Oh no! Poor Mr. Zippers. I am very sorry.
Jay and Cynthia, I’m so sorry for your deep loss. Mr. Zippers will be greatly missed, but I’m glad while he was here, he had you to love him. Hug each other for me! xoxo, Angela
I’m tearing up just reading this. I am so sorry. You and Cynthia have my deepest sympathies.
Christmas Eve 1997 saw me have to put cat to sleep because of a nasty virus that got to his liver and heart.
Sorry to hear.
Every pet I ever have had that has passed, makes me appreciate the ones I have now a little more. They are a blessing in so many ways.
I’m so sorry to hear about Mr. Zippers.
From one companion animal family to another, you have our deepest condolences.
Cynthia, I must say I am shocked by this sad news. I’m so sorry for your loss. Jay, somehow I think Mr. Zippers loved you too. He just had a strange way of showing it…
Hugs and condolences to you both.
I am so sorry to learn of your loss. (hugs)
