RIP Elmo

Yesterday our pet chinchilla Elmo bit the dust. He had been ill for several weeks. He'd stopped eating and a visit to the vet and some drugs didn't help the little fella.

At least I wasn't to blame for this death unlike our last chinchilla, who I accidentally stood on as he ran down the stairs. A similar fate befell my brother's cat who ended up under the wheels of his car.

I was worried how our daughter would handle his death, but in fact she was very cool about the situation, mostly concerned about when we'd be getting another pet...
