Things that go “Thump” in the Night

26 Feb

No matter how careful you are, no matter what you take out of their tank before you go to bed, no matter how many ways you attempt to cover your ears with a pillow,

Your gerbils will wake you up at night. 

Whether it be thumping their little feet because they heard a noise, chewing, digging, running on a wheel, “talking” to one another, they will drive you to the edge of insanity and then push you right off.

Unless you particularly enjoy laying in bed with murderous thoughts running through your head, I highly suggest keeping your gerbils in a room other than your bedroom.

I have no where else to keep mine, so they are all on my desk, just two feet or so away from my bed. I’ve gotten pretty used to it by now, and have taken steps to avoid at least some of the noise. Such as applying a dab of Vaseline to the joints of their wheel to keep the squeak at bay. Taking the wheel out seems to just drive them to do other obnoxiously loud things, so controlling the squeak has been the best solution so far.

Have any noise reducing tips? Please comment and share!
