New Gerbils!!!

i just wanted to brag about my new birthday present hehe
after dropping little "did you know" facts about gerbils for the last month and talking non stop about gerbils my fiance finally got the hint AND to my surprise when i got home today i had 2 new male gerbils sitting in a cage waiting for me they are absolutely adorable all black with white feet and SUPER friendly they already step onto my hand i absolutely love them beyond belief cant wait to do some sewing and make them some beds, tunnels and toys i decided to name them Bently and Cooper
just needed to tell someone that actually adores animals as much as i do

Congrats on your gerbils!

I used to have a gerbil and have recently considered getting them again,but not sure when.And yes,they are a lot different from hamsters.When I got mine,I just got one because at the time (years ago) I didn't research and assumed they were solitary animals like hamsters.I would of done things different if I could go back with her.That is why some day I want them again,because I know how to take care of them now.

PICTURES?

Congrats!
Don't put too much effort into sewing their little beds... Trust me, they will be completely obliterated with in a week.
I has a gerbil a long time ago too... I adopted her because her sister/cage mate attacked her, and the owner didn't have room for 2 cages. She was always very jumpy and nervous, but I guess that's understandable LOL.

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

Congrats on your gerbil boys! I am so glad you have two, as they definitely get lonely if they are alone. I love gerbils! My husband and I had two wonderful agouti brothers, Mick and Keith, several years ago and we just loved them so much!! They were such sweetie pies. Definitely different than hamsters, for sure. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did. You sound like you will be a great gerbil mommy!
