Life sucks


As the header suggests, I'm having a rotten day.

This morning, one of my pet gerbils, Honey, died. Honey is the little ginger and white one in the pic, the black and white one is Kizzy.  She was absolutely fine yesterday but this morning, she had a fit of some kind and there was nothing I could do for her. At least she didn't suffer for ages and she wasn't sick for days or anything like that. And she was three years old, which is pretty good for a gerbil.

Kizzy seems fine at the moment; she's not searching for Honey too much so I'll see how she gets on being on her own.

Thanks.
At least Kizzy seems fine with being on her own (though the poor thing keeps getting woken up by me every time I walk past her tank, just to make sure she's still okay...)

{{{hugs}}} I'm so sorry for your loss. I couldn't imagine how I would feel if I lost one of my furry babies (dogs). Those pictures are really cute, though.

Thanks. Those pics are my favourite ones. Pets are as much a part of the family as people, aren't they?

Oh, honey. I'm so so sorry! I used to keep gerbils, before I switched to rats, and they're awesome! I'm so sorry you lost Honey. *hugs*
But I bet she had a wonderful life with you!

I've always kept gerbils- they're adorable.

Thanks.
They become as much a part of the family as people are.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I have kept gerbils too, and losing one is so very sad :( Honey was a beautiful little thing!

Thank you. It is awful to lose one.
At least Kizzy still seems okay without her little friend.
