One of the things that is really fun about doing maid service is getting to see many different pets and I have a load of cats and dogs in my life as well as many other kinds of pets.
This is the tale of Chili the chinchilla.
This is Chili.
He belongs to one of our newer customers and is very friendly.
He also enjoys rolling around in his little ball.
Sadly, a couple of weeks after filming this little video, when we got to our customers home we discovered Chilli had past away. And by discovered I mean that our team was the first ones to see that Chilli had passed.
When we told the lady of the house what we had discovered she informed us that Chilli had been their daughters pet and that she was at camp and would not be home until the following day.
The daughter is between 11 and 12 years old, her brother is between 8 and 9 years old. When the son heard about Chilli he started to put together a little box with all of his sisters favorite treats. He also made her a condolence card to giver her when she got home from camp and found out about Chilli.
It makes me feel good to see this kind of caring between siblings it is so rare.

So touching, the son’s consideration of his sister. I won’t lie, I teared up a bit reading it. Sad to say, it’s things like that, that we don’t see or hear about often enough. We need to change that, I think.

It is true there is not enough of this kind of compassion amongst our youth. It is very heart warming when it is seen.
