Ok, now that I've gotten that out of my system, I'll tell you why I'm freaking/happy/panicking. Our female gerbil is freaking pregnant. I noticed the bulging earlier today. So now we have 2 tanks set up with a tunnel running into both of them, but the gerbils haven't figured out how to use it. I hope they learn soon, they're each in their own tanks right now. She looks to be due at any time, I'd give her less than a week. They were 5 weeks old when we got them in April. I am so not ready for this, but I have to deal with it.

Wow Grandparents. lol I think I remember you saying it was hubby who wanted to breed them, if so then I am sure he will be excited and being the pet lover that you are you will be so ready and willing. Best of luck and hope all comes out well with the new ones.

That's great, then. Having pets at home can be entertaining most of the time. I have a puppy, the usual pet. I like it when he surprises me whenever I arrive home, it just feels great knowing there's someone (or something) more than happy to express his excitement over my presence.

I want to know what good gerbils have done that the rats have not. Don't they look the same? I had to run helter, skelter to get rid of the brood that some female rat left in my store room and here you are all ga ga about your female gerbil being pregnant![em]rofl[/em.
