We have a gerbil and she is really cute and funny. Also very easy to look after, we clean the cage about every few weeks (used to do it every week but I don't think this is necessary). They are quite wriggly and move really quickly so won't just sit in your hand, any handling has to be done sitting on the floor, not too far to fall if they jump. We only have one but I don't think she is lonely, she gets, loads of attention and treats.

I don't know anything about mice, hamsters seem a bit more docile and easier to handle. But, I think gerbils are cuter.

Congratulations Smile I was in a class in juniors that had gerbils. Fond memories, they were a lot of fun.

Ooh lovely. You will have lots of fun watching your new pets. Great names too. You will never be able to pass a pet shop, without going in to buy a treat.
