So glad you got a spot so the family can do that together, I'm sure Angel is going to be super happy!! It's good to get out of your comfort zone every once in a while

Thank you Gail, Jo, and Tracy

Welcome Tink & River Country. Thank you both so much

Chewy continues to get worse, and is eating even less. I had to take his wheel out of his tank, because he managed to climb into it, but couldn't get back down, and fell on his head before I could get to him.

I didn't go to the post office yesterday, but DH brought home a Mickey Mail envelope last night. Angel didn't get a chance to open it though. Thurs. night DH went to the old house & brought me the luggage, and I cleaned it up yesterday, and the only place I had to put it was where we've been taking the pictures. DH is going to help me take it to the basement when he gets home from work this afternoon.

I'm so sorry to hear about Chewy. So sad about the wheel. Is he able to eat and drink on his own or do you have to hand feed him?

Sea Lions sound like fun!

Since my mom hasn't seen them yet, I thought I would answer the questions for her.

Yes, it's the one at Blue Lagoon.

He's only able to hold very small, light food, but he is eating on his own. Since we lowered the water bottle, he is able to get water, but it's very difficult for him to be upright long enough to get a drink and we haven't seen him get very much water.

I'm sorry about Chewy, you guys :-(. Have you tried giving water with a small syringe just to ensure he's getting enough water? Big hugs.

Thank you Tink, Melissa, Michele, Jo, and Judy

We do have a syringe, but I've been scared to try it because I've read that it's easy to do it wrong & it goes into their lungs. I've been feeding him food soaked in milk or water, so he is getting some fluid, but he's eating less every day.


Thank you for the St. Patrick's Greeting Judy. Angel especially loved that it was Aurora.


Sorry I didn't get the last Big Give pictures posted yet. I've been staying up too late trying to care for Chewy, and it caught up to me yesterday. I hope to get them posted today.

Big Give mail arrived on Friday.

This one is from mommy2mrb


It doesn't show up much in the picture, but there's a little pink Mickey head in the corner & says Mickey Mail. She loved that it was addressed to "Princess" Angel.





Thank you so much Lisa & Megan for the adorable card & gift card!

Thank you to mommy2mrb for the wonderful pixie dust. The card you made is adorable. I'm looking forward to using the gift card on our trip, and adding it to my collection afterwards.

Thank you.





Chewy had been getting worse everyday. Yesterday was really hard for him, and us too.

I came home from school and saw his empty tank on the floor, so I figured out that he died. It was sometime between 11 and 12 this afternoon. Chewy was our oldest gerbil. He always thought he was hungry and would beg for food by standing on a high area and looking at you until you felt sorry enough to feed him lots of treats. He was also the only one that would let me pet him, even though it was probably because he thought I was bringing him food. I loved all of my gerbils, but I think that he was my favorite, probably because he was the friendliest.

Here's an older picture of him.
