Though we take care of our pets well, there will come a time that we will need to say goodbye to them. And more often than not, we outlive our pets. Though, some species of birds can live as long as us, maybe even surpassing the lifespan of some of us.

If they have a shorter lifespan than you, then you have little to worry, but giving them the best life they can live.
