Meet The Gerbils

DSCN0303

My clan of gerbils is relatively small in comparison to most breeders. However, It allows me to spend a lot of quality time with my fuzzy friends. I never want to become overwhelmed by numbers.

The In-Laws

These two lovely gerbils are not mine, and these are not my photos. These are the parents of my two females. Photos are from Ashley, the breeder from whom I acquired my girls. They are truly lovely.

The Doctor & River

My first lovely pair, The Doctor (Spotted Black) and River (Spotted Siamese, Now passed). Both had sweet, gentle dispositions and lovely spotted markings. River has passed away after having only two litters, but they were gorgeous litters. I will miss you sweet River. The Doctor now lives happily with his two sons, Alfie and Stormy, who look just like their mother.

Rory and Amy

My second lovely pair is Rory (Spotted Red Fox) and Amy (Burmese). Rory is a sweet and calm boy while Amy is a spunky, “I want it my way” kinda gal. These two are now separated, Rory now lives happily with Henry. Amy had four litters.

Henry (Red Fox) and Clara (Spotted Burmese) were only allowed two litters. Both are absolute doll babies and love to be loved. Clara is the daughter of The Doctor and River. Henry now lives with Rory having done his job of producing sweet little babies. 🙂

 

Blast from the Past

Last time I bred gerbils was in 2005. I did not breed selectively for color at all, just for temperament and health. Here are some pictures of the babies from those litters.

I also own a hedgehog named Rumplequillskin, Rumple for short.

Rumple is an African pygmy hedgehog.
