The gerbils were definitely one of the best ideas I’ve had. I love having them keep me company on my desk while I write and stuff.
And they are now at the stage where the little one can cuddle them and get quality time with them. Pinkle is the friendly one
And he’s lovely and soft. He always comes to say hello if I open the door to the cage and is pretty easy to catch for a cuddle.
Twinkle is a bit more grumpy. He’s hard to catch and scrabbles with his claws and gives you a nip sometimes. He doesn’t do it hard – just a warning really
But somehow the little one manages to cuddle him. They are both really lovely little characters though
