Yoshi passed away around 10pm tonight. He'd been ill for a day or so, and was really weak. Despite syringe feeding, Antibiotics, and heat pads, he was extremely weak, and eventually had a fit and passed away in my hands. Yoshi was one of my first gerbils who made me fall in love with the species. He came to me as one of 10 gerbils, kept in a tiny hamster cage, when he was around 3 weeks old. Yoshi, Flash & Toad were the first three I kept, Toad was his sister (Then thought of as brother, woops) and Flash was the only boy from another litter. He lived most of his life with Flash & BamBam until Bam had to be seperated from the other 2 for being violent. He was a cute, chubby little chap, and him and Flash were thick as theives from the start.
