Loss of a pet - Mike

We lost a loved one recently. It was Mike. He was a little over three years old. He was a wonderful little black gerbil. He started developing teeth problems so he had monthly visits with the vet. Then he started to develop a tumor on his belly. We was on meds and goop on his belly for awhile. It helped for awhile but something else must have been going on inside. He suddenly wasn't feeling like himself. Got into the vet the same day. He already started to feel cold in my hands. So we said goodbye. His brother Ike will miss him. They were separated a few months ago. Ike attacked Mike. Now we know why. Ike was always near. Ike hasn't been himself since Mike passed. That day all the gerbils were strangely quiet as if they knew. This is how I want to remember Mike. He loved playing with his wicker ball toys. He couldn't chew but he did try. Bless his heart. he enjoyed the gerbil life the best he could.

Gerbil Update

It has been awhile since I posted.  Much has happened in the gerbil world. Lost a few.  Got a few.  Very recently I lost my agility gerbil Dixie.  Then little Oscar.  He was very tiny for six months old.  He was the runt of the litter.  I put Sam and Felix together.  They are best buds.  I have Spot and Chewie together.  Chewie is my rehab gerbil.  I will tell his story in another post.  I currently have nine gerbils.  One girl Spot and the boys: Mike,  Ike, Jaime, Tyrion, Chewie, Felix, Sam and Connor.

Knit Gerbil Baskets



It has been awhile since I posted anything knitting or gerbil related so here is both. I have been making these cute gerbil knitted baskets as play carriers. They help you pick up a gerbil when you can't yet. They really love them as you can see from my models Mike and Ike. They make perfect play baskets when they are playing on your lap. They love to jump in and out of them. Sometime they chew it but not for long. They look so cute in them. I am planning on having them for sale at my Etsy Store Squeaky Knitting Designs. They will also be at the next AGS New England Show in May 2015.
