Goodbye Dora... :(
I have tried getting on this forum the last few days, but the internet said it wasn't here?
Anyway, Dora was doing better, and I started having hopes of her living longer. For a long time she would go back and forth. She lived for her 3rd birthday and past it.
Then today was my b-day, and was so happy she was still alive and doing well, and energetic and full of life.
Just earlier, I was cooking dinner for my boyfriend and walked by her cage and realized she had past away. In away it is bittersweet, sad that she died on my b-day, but sweet that maybe she knew and wanted to stick around for this day for me.
I will miss her so much, she was my last gerbil. I am leaving her tank alone right now, can't bring myself to take her out of it, but I know I will have to before I go to work tomorrow or my apartment will start to smell. I guess tomorrow I will clean her tank out. I just cleaned it for her this past weekend, she was so happy and so energectic. I don't understand why one minute she could be fine, then the next gone.
