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! πŸ™‚

Available Gerbils as of 01/16/15

Adopt as Established Same Gender Pair Only:

1 Lilac (grey) Female (DOB:Β 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 theirΒ 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!

Available Gerbils as of 8/10!

Hello gerbil lovers!! Thought you could use an update on what’s what at The Happy Gerbil!

My males and females are separated now, so these are my last litters! I was expecting one last litter from Clara, but as it is 5 days from her due date and she is showing no signs of pregnancy, she may not be expecting.

 

I have one litter available now and one that will be available on 8/22. Two males from the currently available litter are going to be picked up this week, not sure which two yet, but their colors are as follows:

1 Black female
1 Sp. Siamese Male
1 Mottled Agouti Female
2 Pied (spotted) Black, Boy & Girl
2 Sp. Agouti Males

The August 22nd litter are as follows:

1 Pink Eyed White Female
2 Lilac (grey) Females
2 Sp. Burmese, Boy & Girl
1 Sp. Black Female

On September 15th, I have a litter of seven that will be available. Currently they are still furless and genders cannot yet be determined.

I also have a Polar Fox girl and her Agouti sister who need homes, they both suffered from upper respiratory infections when they were pups, and the experience of being medicated made them slightly less trusting of people. They are still able to be held, but they do occasionally nip. If you would be willing to provide a loving home to these two little survivors, please let me know. They are available free of adoption fee, since I have been bitten by both of them, and it did draw blood. They are not biters, they just require a gentle and patient hand. πŸ™‚

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today was my birthday! And here to help me celebrate are all six of Clara’s babies with their eyes open! Already I can tell that they will be big sweethearts like their parents, and especially like their Dad, Henry. Contact me if you would like to add two little furry friends to your family! They are ready to start their new lives on August 22nd! πŸ™‚

Though I will miss having little baby gerbils running around, I will be thankful when all of these pups and the final two litters are placed in homes–it does get stressful when you don’t have enough potential adopters.

I will try to take pictures of all the little cuties here soon! πŸ™‚ Stay tuned!

Sorry for being so slack in the updates! Hopefully you follow The Happy Gerbil’s Facebook page, I’ve been much better at updated that since I can access it from my phone.

After the Doctor lost his precious mate River Song, I have decided to keep his last two sons, both look much like their mom. After much deliberation, I’ve decided to name them after yet another Doctor Who character! Alfie, known to himself as Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All, is a baby in an episode of Doctor Who. Cutest little kid. These two gerbils look almost identical, so they are now named after this adorable baby. Alfie & Stormy! πŸ™‚

Available Gerbils as of 7/7/14

Quick list of gerbils that are currently looking for homes!

 

Females:Β 

Spotted Siamese Sub Adult (Light creamy brown with white markings and a dark tale. Very friendly)

Spotted Dove Sub Adult (Ruby eyes, light dove gray, white markings. Very friendly)

Spotted Agouti Sub Adult (Dark brown w/Black ticked fur, white markings. Very friendly)

Agouti Sub Adult (Dark brown w/Black ticked fur. Friendly, slightly skittish, needs to get to know you before she trusts)

Agouti Six week old (Dark brown w/Black ticked fur. Runt, very friendly.)

Polar Fox Six week old (White w/Dark Grey ticked fur and a dark tale. Very friendly)

Males:

Spotted Siamese Sub Adult (Light creamy brown with white markings and a dark tale. Very friendly)

Mottled Black Six week old (Black with white markings. Friendly.)

Spotted Siamese Six week old (Light creamy brown with white markings and a dark tale. Very friendly)

Agouti Six week old (Dark brown w/black ticked fur. Friendly.)

 

Please contact me for details and pictures! Need to find homes for these babies asap! πŸ™‚

The difference between “friendly” and “very friendly” is just how quickly they are to approach you and hop into your hand. Some of my Agouti’s are a bit closer to their wild relatives in temperament, they’re just as sweet, just take a bit more time before they want to climb in your hand. πŸ™‚
