How funny! Maybe she had them on Wednesday night - she's probably already pregnant again grin.

Aargh Hogwash wash yourmarf aht! No, we removed Mallory before Mickey gave birth, so at least I don't have to worry about that. Omg and I opened the front door to the gas man earlier, without realising I had a gerbil turd on the front of my cardi!

Just to warn you, sometimes they eat their babies sad

Well, all six are still alive! Tried to post a photo, but can't convert to the correct format.

We are having to keep them in our bedroom at present, away from noise, cats, kids, and DH's farting. Noisy little turds they are at nightp!

sad Chipped. Can anyone give me advice on how to ensure they're rehomed to decent homes? Maybe I should ask potential adoptees to bring the cage they intend to use, etc?
