We've recently added two new critters to our little menagerie of pets. Two 8 week old gerbils.
They are really fun and entertaining to watch. The girls have named them peaches and fluffanutter, though Dom and I like to refer to them as peaches and cream.
I didn't really intend to add anymore pets but Kenzie kept asking even though I had hoped that the zhu-zhu pets she got for Christmas would satisfy her.
For approximately 2 days.
Dom had insisted he didn't want any rodents for pets other then the rabbits, so that was good. Then while he was at the pet store picking out a new fish for the tank with Becca they were looking at the gerbils and he thought they were cute. Sooo... he said he wouldn't mind getting them since they were active during the day and fun to watch. But it was up to me since I, of course, would become the primary caregiver. And I, of course, being a sucker for cute and fuzzy animals said okay which made the girls very happy. So we now have 2 gerbils, 2 rabbits, 1 dog,
1 cat, and 4 fish!
