Nook never showed any further signs of illness after I made that post, leaving me to assume her sneezing was due to the plasterer's dust that's getting all over the house right now and must have ended up in my hair.
Sadly, however, Nook died sometime on Sunday night. I found her yesterday when I went to feed her and Kindle. She was lying in her crinkle-tube, looking very much asleep, but her body was very much cold and stiff when I touched her to wake her.
I can find no sign of why she died. She still looked healthy on the outside, just asleep. The last time anyone saw her alive was when my sister gave her and my 8-month-old piggy Kindle some fennel to eat around mid-afternoon on Sunday while I was attending my daughter's First Communion party. My sister reported that at the time, Nook was scurrying around her cage and making squeaking sounds.
All of the fennel was eaten by both Kindle and Nook. Kindle remains in good health and just spent all night in the livingroom with me and my best friend watching movies.
Nook has been appropriately buried under some discarded pavestones which I had painted literary puns onto and set up as "gravestones" this past Halloween, but now have their painted sides down and make a little path around the base of a magnolia tree that is haunted by my grandfather's ghost.
