Unhappy Lost everyone yesterday

I was so upset I felt like I would be sick. I'm moving across the country and I had them all in mason jars in a styrofoam box with no lid and one heat pack. We had done this every day before and had no problems, I was changing the water every night with water from home that was treated with stress coat and we only ate drive through they were never left in the car without the AC on and we had it cranked up hence the heat pack.

Well yesterday the heat pack got way hotter than the packs from previous days and it killed both my boys, Castiel and Gannicus, and the one girl, Lilith, who survived being cared for by my soon to be ex for a week. I feel horrible and I have no idea what caused that one heat pack to get so hot.


Castiel


Lilith


Gannius

My Dad felt so horrible that he took me to a PetSmart in Phoenix AZ and bought me two new boys and they got to ride in the cup holders up front with us all day.

We had the AC on full blast in the car and it was one with no lid on the other side of a styrofoam divider so I figured it would just be a little heat.

I'm so sorry. But bravo to your dad.

My condolences. And I hope your little buddies are swimming peacefully in Animal Heaven. And maybe my Scratchy met Castiel and Gannicus there and they're showing him around.

Itchy was here.
Bon voyage to the other side, Scratchy.
