We got them each a gerbil. Yep, I said gerbil. I know.....two rodents live upstairs now. (again, dirty faces, this time from Krispy Kreme doughnuts with icing from Grandma Debra)
They are so funny to watch. The first three days they carried pieces of bedding up to the tippy top and chewed it into shreds to make a bed.
G has a brown one with a white stripe named Rocky. S has a black one with a white tummy named Weezel.
Note: this cage, although looking simple to assemble, was NOT. If the store will pay to assemble, let them, lol. Also it was very loud and time consuming. If this were a Christmas gift, do the assembly somewhere else beforehand. We barely got through before the bus came.
