Amelia

Amelia

The Lilypad is a little emptier and much sadder tonight. Amelia, our chinchilla, passed away overnight. She is going to be very missed.

Amelia has been with me since my senior year of college. She survived many Thursday night rugby lineouts in my room, then moved with me to my first apartment, my condo, and finally to the Lilypad. She was afraid of everyone and everything when she first moved in with me, but soon loved standing on my shoulder, chewing on my hair while I studied. She and Sydney always got along fine, and she quickly taught Forster his place when he tried climbing her cage. Amelia loved Lilypad Princess, LP liked to share her treats with Amelia and Amelia loved when LP scratched behind her ears. Dried fruits and veggies were her favorites, especially her dried carrots from Nana and PopPop, but she also enjoyed any sort of cracker, pretzel, bread or nut. She also liked to chew the windowsills, hot tub surround, furniture, and anything else made of wood.

Amelia, we love you and miss you.

We will miss Amelia so much. Who will we "cook the carrots for?" But you gave her a wonderful life Sweetheart and that means everything. Now go and give some extra hugs to Princess and Sydney and Forster. They will make you feel a little better.
Love, Mom

Amazingly, that chinchilla was originally my sister's pet. She gave it to me, and I in turn gave her to Emily. I'm so sorry for your loss... but also so grateful that she had such a long and happy life. Thank you for taking care of her.

Best,
Doug
