A Memorial for Our Fuzzy Friends: Kiki, Nikki and Robbie.

It’s been a sad couple of weeks for the Dustbath Beauty herd. Two of our chinchillas, and the family dog all passed away within a week and a half of each other.

Nikki (chinchilla) and Robbie (dog) had been with is for nine years. Kiki (chinchilla) was almost thirteen. It’s a bit of a shock to lose so many pets in a row. Two were not terrible surprising. Robbie was very old and had been struggling with his back legs and sight for quite awhile. Nikki was born with a seizure disorder, and we never expected her to live nearly this long in the first place. (but we’re glad she did)

Kiki, however, was something of a surprise. She went from perky to barely responding in the space a few hours. My best guess is that she had a large seizure. It would explain the sudden decline. Hopefully she wasn’t in pain in her last hours.

I put together a small memorial video of the three of them, and I thought I’d share it with you. They all had unique personalities, and I feel like the clips I choose showcase them well.

Thanks for reading and watching. I hope to back with a much happier topic very soon.
