It's not a good memory for our Thanksgiving, that's for sure.
Everyone is very upset as he was the Good chinchilla -- the friendly one with lots of energy. Ariel, aka Ms. Crankypants, is still going strong. She's finally gotten used to us and actually lets us pet her. A bit. On the head only. She still fights when we try to get her out of the cage, but it's still progress even if slow.
On a good note, our dining room table is actually cleared off so we can start eating off it again. It's only been about 3 years since my business took it over.
