    :D8 weeks ago we bought 2 male Gerbils [as my son found a poorly mouse in the garden and tried to adopt it by bringing it into his badroom in a shoe box! We thought a pet would pacify him]
    We actually went to buy a hamster but were told gerbils were tamer and more fun!
    We had to buy 2 as they hate solitude, so decided on 2 males.
    They played piggy back [hmmmm] so went back to the pet store to be told Males do that!
    Guess what we have now got 6!
    Been a great Biology lasson for the kids but it could only happen to me!
    We have had to separate the male [petshop let us have a free cage]:wave_cry: and poor old Jakers is quite sad on his own!
    Just hope the babies will be ok with their mum!

    gerbils ahh i hate them lol,
    mine use to chew my hands off

    in my opinon the best cage pet to buy a child is a rat,
    eeww for some but they are great,
    my kids have grown up with mine in the last 10 years god knows how many i had in that time, i use to rescue them to when no one wanted them, they are/can be realy friendly, pick them up put them in a massive ball, stroke them and so on, they are just great, even the 2 cats dont go near the one i have now :)

    No please!!!! Rats!!!!
    Yeugh - I am sure they make lovely pets but we have wild ones and they so scare me -I feel for your poor ickle pussycat!!!
    Actually the gerbils have never bitten me - even mum when I have handled her little ones has not bitten me, so I must have tame ones!
    Now the rabbit - thats another story - its the most unsociable grumpy thing ever!!!
    LOL!
