OnTheWight reader, Kay from Cowes, has been in touch with a query she hopes other readers may be able to help with.
Remember the gas cloud from a factory in France that passed over most of the Isle of Wight last week?
Sadly, the following morning Kay, discovered that two of her guinea pigs, kept under the cover of a large lean-to and well covered, had died.
Coincidence or not?
This fact is not unusual in itself, however, a few hours later, Kay’s sister, who lives in East Cowes reported that two of her daughter’s guinea pigs, who were kept inside, had also died.
The next day, a friend who lives in also lives in East Cowes found their guinea pig had died too.
Kay was keen to stress that she didn’t want to start a panic, but was interested to know if anyone else had experienced this on the Island.
Did you lose a pet last week?
We said we’d ask OnTheWight pet owners whether they had experienced the same unfortunate circumstances as Kay, after the gas cloud – which the authorities were keen to stress was entirely safe – had passed over the Island.
Let us know whether this is a bizarre coincidence or if you have experienced the same.
