Sorry, no etymologies found.
The Daily News, the Brit version thereof, reports that Miss Lowery spent more than 100,000 dollars on chemotherapy treatment for her pet parrot Areba.
Areba, a Wagler's Conure, underwent chemotherapy for almost a year but the 42-year-old bird passed away on Tuesday evening at Tampa's Florida Veterinary Specialists.
Cared for round the clock by Dr Teresa Lightfoot and her team at the Avian and Exotic animal ward, Areba had been battling a form of skin cancer since October of 2008.
It does sound crazy to spend over 100K on a pet but Areba had been with Miss Lowery for thirty plus years and the money squeezed an extra nine months out of her life.
Sadly Areba has passed so Miss Lowery has said a tearful to the bird after it lost its battle against cancer.
