RIP Marley the Gerbil

Marley the Gerbil (portrayed here by an actor)

I want to send a shout out to Marley, my gerbil that passed away this morning. We will miss you tons and loved having you as a part of our family. Tell your sisters we said hello and I hope you are having a groovy time in gerbil heaven!

After being with us for 4 years, Marley the Gerbil gave her ghost up. She was the coolest little thing, although a bit of a mutant for having lived so long (outlived her sisters by 2 years) - my husband called her the "Terminator". Sad though I am, I feel better after having a talk with her this morning before I left for work. I told her that it was okay to go now and that we would miss her and I guess she listened. Love you little girl!

  5. Aww thats a sad day, the picture could be my little giblet, whose name is marmite, him and his brother are 2 years old. I adore them and know having lost other gerbils how sad it is. Hoping you can take comfort in the good memories.

  9. Awwww, that's so sad. I am afraid that our hamster Suzie will be leaving us soon too. Although she's a little Terminator like your Marley was :). It sucks big time to lose a beloved pet though. Glad you had a chance to speak with her.

  15. I'm so sorry for your loss Amy. It sound like Marley had an impact on your life. It's not fair that pets have such a short life.

  16. It's so sad when our 'animal' family members leave. Marley sure was gorgeous! I cried when my son's whole family of hermit crabs died & they certainly aren't the cuddliest things.

  17. I'm so sorry to hear about Marley. She lived to a great age! Clearly, she was well cared for, loved, and had a love for life. My deepest sympathies on your family's loss.

  18. Godspeed, little Marley. She was quite a beautiful little gerbil, wasn't she? So sorry for your loss...it is hard to say good-bye to our furchildren. I had my share of guinea pigs, hamsters and (yes) rats over the years. Four years old is a good long life for these little critters. *hugs*
