MONDAY!

This squirrel buddy was very busy grooming its tail but afterwards I found him lazing around on the branch… perhaps the dinner party invitation got cancelled? :D

Photos will follow!

Midnight being tall and adorable feat. Mystery pretending to be a blur instead of a gerbil. They’ve grown a bit since these photos were taken, especially Midnight.

…Gemma and I may have started calling them Midnight Snack and Mystery Novel.

I see so many posts in the gerbil tags where gerbs aren’t being cared for properly, whether majorly or just minor things, and I want to let the posters know things like where they can find accurate information and how they can fix the issues. But I don’t want to flood this or my other existing blogs with stuff about gerbil care - like it has a place on this blog but I don’t want nearly every single gerbil post I make to be a reblog stating that this is not the right habitat, that is dangerous, they need more substrate, have you checked their health lately because their fur is very matted and a bit greasy, etc… and I see all these problems and more so often. I’m not really sure what to do. Maybe I could make a separate blog about their care or something? As it is, whenever you see a rat not being taken care of properly here, it’s almost a guarantee that at least one person will mention it to the rat’s owner, and that’s awesome. But there’s not really the same level of support and education going on with gerbils right now, and I think that there really needs to be…

I also don’t want to come across as obnoxious or like I think there’s only one way to care for gerbils and Everyone Must Obey Me (hey, if someone else wanted to do this in my stead, I certainly wouldn’t say no if they were knowledgeable!). It’s more that gerbil info can be hard to find if you don’t know where to look, and I hate to see gerbils (animals in general) in conditions that could prove dangerous or unpleasant for them. 

Anyone got an opinion on this ramble?

Both snubbing the comfy bed but Mantequilla goes a step further.

What could be better to rest your head on than a wire pot stand?

Mmmmm…comfortable.

Does anyone else know what it feels like to stick your face between two chinchillas?
