Lights Will Guide You Home; We Lost Our Chinchilla Today.

I have a really awesome giveaway for you guys but I really can't write the post today. Within the past 2 hours we lost one of our chinchillas, the baby of the brothers, Killer. He died in my boyfriends lap. They were best friends, you would have thought I gave birth to a chinchilla at some point and not a baby.

 They always cuddled with each other under the blankets and he was the only chinchilla I let near my son. He was just a baby wrapped in fur who wanted nothing but love and attention.

It hurt watching my boyfriend in that much pain, it still hurts as were dealing with it off and on throughout the day. My strong man was broken down and I couldn't even help him except cry with him and stroke Killer's fur. There was nothing I wanted more than that chinchilla suddenly coming back and breathing.

However I am left without a furry friend and an empty place in my heart. His brothers were cuddling next to him trying to keep him warm. It's never easy to watch the other animals go through the grieving process as well. Everyone is just broken today. Tomorrow I will come back with posts but today I need to be there for my boyfriend.

Tears stream, down on your face. When you lose something you cannot replace.


  1. So sorry to hear of your loss. Hope you have a better day.

  2. So sorry for your loss. I think chinchillas are so cute.
