Hey everybody, I'm sorry I have to make my come back with this news.
But my Dad woke me up this morning by calling my cellphone, and he told me to call him back because it was an emergency.
Right away, I knew something had happened to the birds. I thought maybe one of the cats got them or something.
So I called him and he told me that they were trying to get the birds back into their cage (they were having an open house), and they got over excited. It sounds like my little Chi-Chi had a heart-attack and died.
I'm really numb right now--I can't even believe it. Here I am, 200 miles away--I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye. I haven't even registered that he's gone.
So RIP Chi-Chi--I hope at least it was fast, and he wasn't afraid, and it didn't hurt. And poor Nene--my Dad said it didn't look like he had realized that Chi-Chi was gone yet, but I hope he'll be ok.
RIP Chi-Chi Bear
