2 days ago I lost a great friend, Loki. He was my second chinchilla to ever own and my first to lose. I'm taking this especially hard because if it wasn't for me he would still be with me and my other chinchilla, Zeze; I like to talk them into the bathroom because there are lots of ledges for them to climb on and room for them to jump, I looked at my phone to check something and Loki went under the door before I could stop him, I had forgotten to plug up the area under the door. The family dog happened to be passing by when Loki did this and went after him. While running Loki's heart stopped before our dog could catch him. I'm so sorry Loki, you'll always be in my heart forever.
I can't get the image to show up in this post, so for those who are interested here is a link to a picture of Loki.

I'm worried about Zeze now, hes acting a little strange and not moving around as much as he did when Loki was with him. I'm wanting to get another chinchilla for him soon but I know when I do I will feel like im just trying to replace Loki.
Thank you for your concern. I haven't ever been this upset over losing a pet before, but I've never bonded with an animal more than I have with Zeze or Loki. Zeze seems to be doing better after the first couple nights alone still not as active though. In whatever afterlife there is I hope I can see Loki again.
im so sorry for your loss i comepltly understand how you feel and with time youll feel better i promise as for a new chinchilla they wont replace loki but they can help you heal and help zeze feel less lonley once their bonded. lots of hugs feel better =o
