lol I picked the name Phillis cause my friend by the name of phil actually picked her up and bought her for me I had just had a hamster and rat pass on me and I needed a new companion.
my one older rat is still around but I am not sure just for how long.... I know my mom doesn't want me getting another but I would like getting a new baby...after him. I am just so accustomed to having rats around I can't imagine not having one.
Phillis is very cute. Too bad you didn't get two female gerbils from the same cage – gerbils love to have the company of other gerbils but are very difficult to introduce if they're not from the same litter.
She is one lucky girl. Any more pics – would love to see more.
My two gerbils, Ember and Fawn, passed away last year – one in August and one in September. Both were over three years old. (I had been given them for free by a pet store that said they couldn't sell them because they were too old. I think they were around 6 months old at the time.) I loved those two and miss them.
