My little peanut and pickles

Sunday, 16 December 2012

I thought I would share with you two little guys that are a big part of my life.
Peanut and pickles, my two gerbils!

I've only had them since september, but they are just the best pets!
They are very, very, very curious, everything I do, everything I put in their cage they have to explore!
They thump their feet when they get excited and stand up like meerkats to have a little nosey!

They are burrowing animals, so live in a gerbilarium which has a big tank at the bottom for tunnelling.
They chew a lot! Ill spend lots of money on toys, but they would much rather have a cardboard box!

They are very social! Hence why I have two, they get very depressed without a cage mate :(
They also love humans, especially pickles, who loves to climb up my dressing gown sleeve. 

They are like two peas in a pod, they always play, sleep together and groom each other.
They are so cute and I'm so glad I got them! 


  1. Having a pet that is yours is the best thing! I have a snake, admittedly not as furry but she's still quite adorable, and loves cuddles.
    Your fuzzballs are adorable :)
