I lost my little gerbil Cloak yesterday morning. I think it was some kind of infection. I didn't catch it quick enough to take her to the vet. I had a vet appointment sheculed for Tuesday morning so I took in her buddy Dagger to be sure everything was ok. The vet did find a slight wheezing and we got her on meds right away. Poor Dagger was upset all day looking for her friend. I was so upset that I took the entire day off for work.
I wasn't as bad as when I lost my little Gimpy back on February 14th. Yep. Valentine's Day. She was my first gerbil. But I still cried.
