We started out with 3 baby girls, then went back to get their three brothers for reasons that are too silly to explain! Still who doesn't love a home full of happy gerbils - we certainly do.

After a little break form keeping gerbils we found an adorable litter of baby girls looking for a home. We tried to resist, but our love of gerbils won out and so three bundles of gerbily cuteness joined our family.

Wheatie

Wheatie

December 2013 - December 2014

A gorgeous little gerbil looking for a home, how could we resist? Well Derek certainly couldn't and so we adopted Wheatie. Only with us a short time, we had a wonderful and happy year with our little guy.

Berry

September 2007 - March 2010

We had popped to our local pet shop to look at indoor bunny homes, only to discover they ran a small animal adoption centre. Of course we had to have a look and instantly fell in love with a rather antisocial little black gerbil.

March 2005 - September 2007

We'd decided to take a little break from gerbils and had kept to our resolve for a few years. We were weeks away from moving house when a trip to the pet shop lead to a pair of free gerbils joining our family!

Barley, Syrup, Millie & Rogue

Barley, Syrup, Millie & Rogue

August 1999 - April 2003

Four gerbils, we must have been mad! Oh but what an experience, this bunch kept us very busy with their antics and cardboard chomping. Barley was very much in charge of her three sisters, though Rogue definitely earned her name.

Lumpy & Bumpy

Lumpy & Bumpy

October 1996 - July 1999

This little pair of female gerbils may have been identical, but their personalities made them very easy to tell apart. As their names suggest Lumpy preferred a quiet life while Bumpy, well she was a little crazy (even for a gerbil).

Fudge

Fudge

September 1993 - May 1996

I popped down the pet shop, while Derek was at work and look what happened, this handsome not-so-little chap found his way home with me. Fudge was a very large gerbil, but his temperament was incredibly soft and gentle.
