    I treated him quite a bit over the last few weeks but today he was really quite ill and had another tumor - he struggled to get to the platform he sits on to see me when I get home so I thought the best thing to do was to take him to the vets.....

    Oooowwwww, poor thing. 3 years is pretty good for a Gerbil thou. Strange how you get so attached to such a small creature - I had gerbils for many years when I lived at home.

    I'm sad for you mattx

    Three years is a good innings for a gerbil, but I remember being devastated when mine died... I had two, Bubble and Squeak, they both made it to 3 as well.

    I'm so sorry mate.
    We've only had our Gerbs for just over a month but I know how attached the kids (and me if I'm honest) have got to them, so goodness knows how you're feeling.

    So sorry to hear that- he lived to a good age and he had a lovely life, so be sad he is gone but happy that he was here..

    Took one of my guinea pigs to the vets today - he has bladder stones and an infection, apparently. Poor Midnight Squeak.. You get so attached, don't you?

    Go in peace, Gerby

    I'm sorry, Matt. We shouldn't get so attached to our pets but we do. I still haven't got over having our two very elderly dogs put to sleep and that was over six years ago. RIP Gerby. Hope your kids are okay.

    Gerby was the inspiration for the internal gerbil-cam we now have at my school that watches the gerbils in the senior biology lab. RIP.
