My Gerbils

Well I have finally got round to showing you pics of my 3 Gerb babies.

The first two are Bill and Ted. They are two males, roughly 12 months - 18 months old who came from a friend of my partner who couldn't care for them properly so they came to me. They are uber sweet and fun to watch, though they arent very handlable right now, as all he ever did was chuck some food in every now and then.


Bill


Ted


This is their gerbilarium looking alot tidier than it usually does as it has just been clewaned out, before they get chance to wreck it.


The third is an old guy called Alf who is roughly 4 years old. He came from my work, I took him as he isn't all that healthy and frankly does not have too much longer with us. He has a big lump on his side and wobbles when he walks and is starting to get a little groggy before he properly wakes up, but he is still going strong when he is awake so I am keeping him until he does pass so he at least gets some quality of life in his final months.


Alf

Alfs gerbilarium is the same as Bill and Ted's only smaller, just over half the size.

I'm sure my family will grow, in fact I'm sure it will so I will keep everyone updated.

Awww...thanks for sharing!
I like little Alf...it is sad that his health is not great though.

I know but at least he is getting some love now. And also just realised the gerbilarium is more of a mess in that pic than I realised. Bill and Ted are not houseproud.

Thanks Guys! Alfie saw the vet today and his lump is OK. I have to monitor it and if it gets bigger he has to have it removed, so fingers crossed it stays the same size!
