    I have 2 hamsters. They are male and we have had them for a month. They were together at the pet store and we put them in the same cage at home and they got along fine. Played together, slept together, and shared food just fine. One got out (Bo) and was gone for 3 days. He came back today...
  3. Degu Discussion
    Hi Everyone, My recent 3 foster degus have been adopted, and so I have my 55G tank available, it can be converted into a split tank and I am wanting to do some degu introductions in it, as SARSBC has an overwhelming number of rescued degus, many of them singles. My thought is to pair up as many...

    Tonight I was on my way home from my parents house (about an hour away) with my gerbils who were in a split cage because I was getting ready to introduce them. We heard some noise in the back seat and when I turned to check it out Limmiewinks had somehow broken through to the other side and was...

    Ok, here's the situation. I have three gerbils, which I thought were all male and now I'm not so sure. I think the female is pregnant (that was the first clue they weren't all boys) she seems to have gotten really chunky on her sides. So I'm wondering where to put her to give birth. I've heard...

    Well, I just rescued a dwarf hamster from a home where he was neglected. I have had him for a few months and I have been doing alot of research about him but I still have some unanswered questions. I read that dwarfs are very social animals and need friends? See, I did not know that because my...

    I picked up Magic, he is from a girl i know who likes to get pets then give/sell them after she gets bord of them. He was posted on Craigslist. Poor little guy was being terrorized by their new cat (The replacment) and then her two small children. Anyways, here are a couple pictures of the...

    And he still scares me to death. :( I'm trying not to be so scared because he really DOES seem friendly. He runs up to the cage whenever I come close, and eats out of my hand. I'm far too scared to hold him, but he's starting to let me pet him...I just wish that neither of us was wary of the...
  10. Rabbit Discussion
    I'm starting to think Female bunnies are smarter then males. I litter trained Aniseed in 3 days, and this past week I have taught her not even poop outside her litter box and she's doing great. :) But I'm one not so happy camper tonight >:( I had Baby & Jackpot out while I was watching TV, both...
  11. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Hey, I have a litter of 5 eight day old pups, and I also have 3 adult gerbils. When time comes for them to be weaned from mom, would it be okay to introduce one of the female pups in with my solo female Gerbil, or would it be better to keep all the girls with mom? (Assuming there is more than...

    One of my gerbils, Remy, likes sleeping vetically in the Habitrail tubes I set up for them to play in. It's pretty funny to see actually, if not slightly confusing. Can anyone tell me why he does this?

    i went to the pet shop to buy 2 gerbils, but there was 3 in the cage and we coulnt leave the little white one on its own so we bought all 3. :dopey: well one died (freddie) and the other two (Alfie and Rooney) were left, well rooney was clearly the weaker gerbil, reluctant to attemt the tunnels...
  14. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    About 3 days ago, I was cleaning cages and to my surprise, I found a mess of Gerbil babies. They are really cute and I love them to death, but I'm not very knowlageable. I was just wondering if anyone knew when it was "safe" to start handling them?
  15. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Hey guys i have a few questions for the gerbil folks on here. I work at a pet store and a little girl brought in a black male gerbil as she could not keep him any longer. We usually dont accept animals that havent been purchased from the store but i bent the rules as i didnt want this little...

    I am really worried about my two gerbils, my older black female, will play nice outside of the cage, but in a new clean, different cage is mean agressive, to the younger female, if you can help please do. I dont want them to have to live separate forever. thank you.:)

    Here they are Monte my stunning Red Eyed White, and Carlo my adorable Champagne. I am not a ruby/red eyed animal fan what so ever, but I could not say no to Monte. He is pure white, no tinting or shading just white on white. He has amazing red eyes also. And little Carlo (you can see what...

    I had a gerbil that's in a tank with 2 other females escape on me, I'm guessing late last night. She had been running around free for 12 to 16 hours or so. I have found her, and before putting her back in the tank, I placed all three gerbils on my lap to smell one another and see how things go...

    I would like to know if you have had a gerbil escape in your home, what is the best way you have been able to catch them? I didn't do my regular gerbil check last night, I was tired and went straight to bed, now I see Alero has pushed her tank lid open and escaped! Her other 2 tank mates are...
