Sadly, this morning my gerbil, Kizzy passed away.
She was ill- I took her to the vets on Wedesday and she had been on antibiotics since then but it didn't help. She wasn't doing too well last night and, this morning, she died. I lost my other gerbil, Honey, a couple of months ago and from ones I've had in the past I've seen that they rarely survive long without each other. I don't know why. Not that it makes it any easier.
Still, I know that Kizzy had a good and long (for a gerbil) life here.
