||Deceased, One year old|
is my beloved gerbil Priscilla. She and her husband Cacino were my
boyfriend's Christmas present two years ago and I was her mum and her
best mate. She was so cute and so smart ... I loved her so much! I used to
prefer her to Cacino because every time I opened the tank she was always
the first to come out. She used to sit on the bottom of the tank and
stare at me waiting for some treats or sunflower seeds. Her favorite
treats were a kind of small biscuits in the shape of fruits ... she loved
the strawberry! Every time I held her she used to slip into my sleeves,
climb on my arm and all over under my shirt! When I let her and Cacino
go around in my room she always stayed near to me, climbing on my legs,
staring at me in search of cuddle or treats! If I had been a sorcerer
she would have been my familiar!
We were best friends! She was so cheerful, so restless in running around
the cage, chewing paperboard or hay and so on ... She was a good mum too!
She and Cacino had beautiful babies and Priscilla had been
the best mum ever for them!
When she passed away, a few days before Christmas, she was only one year old
and it was terrible. I loved her so much and I could not bear to see my
little princess go away! My boyfriend and I made her a little grave in
my yard under a big tree which I can see from my window. It was a very sad
day for all of us. I'm sure that Cacino misses her as we do ...
The day Priscilla went away from us she left four puppies, they were
only three weeks old and we were so upset about them! Thankfully they
survived and now I have three beautiful ladies so similar to their mum
Priscilla: Mafalda, Magò and Scheggia! They are the cutest ladies in the
world and I love them as much as I loved her mother. I hope Priscilla
will be happy to see that her human mum loved her so much and that her
daughters are loved as she was. Cacino now lives with two of his sons,
Ferruccio and Norberto, and I hope he is happy ... because since Priscilla
has gone away I'm very fond of him, maybe I feel guilty because I used
to prefer Priscilla to him, or maybe because petting him It appears to
me to still have Priscilla here in my hand.
It is so hard for me to talk about my little princess because the sorrow
is still so loud in my heart, but I hope all of you to understand how
special was Priscilla to me. She was the best lady gerbil ever and she
will be the pet of the day in my heart forever.
