Itchy

Postby Godfrey Parks » Thu Jan 01, 2009 2:52 am

Itchy passed away on 31st December 2008. Itchy had been steadily losing weight since the end of October and had blood in his urine. His vet decided it was time to refer him to a rodent specialist. Thus, we had to travel to Cumbernauld (a fair distance from where we live). Itchy was admitted to the veterinary surgery overnight and was scheduled to have exploratory surgery early the following morning. So we said our goodbyes to the wee man and hoped for the best. Sadly, the vet phoned to say that Itchy was riddled with cancerous tumours which were inoperable. The vet estimated that he only had around 2 weeks to live and would be very ill most of this time. I therefore made the decision to let my wee boy slip away while still anaesthetised. The wife and I collected Itchy and brought him back home. He is now at his own vet and will be cremated (as was Scratchy) in the next few days.

I now have no gerbils, I loved the boys dearly and we had tremendous fun and of course, they were spoilt rotten. At the moment I'm too upset but perhaps one day, I may let some new little critters burrow their way into my heart.

A tribute to Itchy's brother Scratchy. Scratchy escaped from his tank on so many occasions he was nicknamed Steve McQueen, so this video is very apt –



Awww... how I miss them!

God :(
