Quick update:

I do not have an active gerbil purposed email anymore. I have way too much going on in my life to manage it, so I deleted that email.

As previously stated, I am no longer breeding gerbils. I am leaving this blog up to provide info for those doing gerbil research.

To all of my adopters, I am so happy you found me! I love you guys!

Due to extreme business, a full time career, and many other things, I probably won’t be posting here much. I do however have another personal blog that I post on slightly more often. If you would be interested in following that blog, leave me a comment or shoot me and email and I’ll get you hooked up with the link.

Short update. Sadly I’ve lost a gerbil over the weekend, not sure the cause. He had been getting picked on by his brother and I think he just got depressed because of it. Also, my oldest gerbil Henry is looking like he is on his way out as well. He’s lived a long life and he doesn’t seem in pain at all, just tired and ready to pass. He is such a sweet boy, I will definitely miss him.

With his passing I will be left with just three gerbils. I’m not intending to get more, with my new job as an Ophthalmic Technician, I don’t really have a whole lot of time to spend with them, not as much as I would like. So once they’ve lived out their lives, I’ll just be gerbil-less.

I hope all my gerbil adopters are doing well, and their fur babies also. 🙂 Thank you all for following me on Facebook, being so supportive in these last few months as I’ve gone through so much, and being such loving homes for my babies! You guys are great!!

Last Goodbye

I lost my mother this last weekend. If you’ve been looking to get gerbils please feel free to email me and reserve them and even pick them up still, just excuse me if it takes me longer than usual to get back to you. Thank you.

That Quiet Girl You Sort-of Know

I love you, Mom. I don’t know how I’m going to do this without you and your gorgeous laugh, your knowing gaze and your corny humor. I wish I had said I love you one more time, given you one more hug. Friday night was the last time I really laughed with you, when I told you I’d seen a cute male nurse and you said you’d give him my number and tell him he had to go through you first. I’m holding tight to that one last really good memory.

There is A LOT going on in my personal life right now, but I wanted to post a quick update reminding my followers and visitors to my site that I still have six gerbils waiting on homes! Yes, the two males are the same color, but as someone who owns twin spotted Siamese boys, being the same color doesn’t mean you can’t tell them apart. They have such unique personalities and shouldn’t be passed up just because they look alike. They’re very sweet boys. 🙂

I would prefer that my PEW (Pink Eyed White) female and her black sister go to a home that has gerbil experience, as they are very unique girls with some funny quirks that may bother someone who isn’t dedicated. They are very sweet, no behavior issues! But the PEW sways when she stands (which is normal for her color) and the little black girl is a bit of a runt and will always be kind of small. I’m just concerned that someone who isn’t a true gerbil person will find those quirks kind of worrisome.

Anyway, please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in adopting any of my babies! Looking forward to sending them off to their forever homes! 🙂

Gerbil Update

I have five babies left, not counting two that are on hold and one that is showing some odd behavior that I’ve taken off my sell list until I’m sure what exactly is going on with her.

I still have my five macho males who I am keeping, Henry, Rory, Stormy, Alfie and The Doctor. I also have a hedgehog named Rumplequillskin. ^_^

I apologize that I haven’t been keeping you up to date lately, it’s been crazy. I love my fur babies, but I will definitely be glad when I’m down to just my keepers.

Anyway, those of you who are reading this because you’re looking into adopting, please shoot me an email and let me know if you’d like to see up to date photos! I’d be happy to help you with any gerbil questions! 🙂

Craft Time!

So blessed to have a Dad who helps me with the ideas I come up with to make caring for my fur babies easier. Today, shortly after two of my six week old girls got picked up by their new mommy (YAY!) my dad and I went to Home Depot and got $15 worth of wood to build this shelf system for my largest bin, a 110qt tub. LOVE how it turned out! Perfect hight, lots of storage space. Very excited. ^_^

Available Gerbils as of 01/16/15

Adopt as Established Same Gender Pair Only:

1 Lilac (grey) Female (DOB: 7/11/14)

1 Pink Eyed White Female DOB: 8/20/14– As is normal with PEW gerbils, this little girl has a sway when she stands up or sits back on her haunches. Tilts over to one side slightly. Many PEW gerbils have this, a common quirk of their color variety.


I am no longer breeding gerbils. The above are ALL I HAVE LEFT. Due to difficulty placing gerbils in homes, I can no longer afford to breed them. Once these guys are gone, I will just have my 5 males as pets. Feel free to contact me with comments, questions or concerns about your gerbils or gerbils you’ve adopted from me in the past. Thanks!
