I don't like rodents, Curried or otherwise! Doc may be an exception to that dislike!

I love kids but Rodents gerbils are not kids..

 I don't own any myself, but they have invaded my property We have huge river rats and wood Rats here as pests they destroy everything and they give me the creeps... Beavers don't bother me.. but rats and gerbils I never had a fondness for.. my kids liked Rats and my family as children all had gerbils.. mostly hamsters... They scare me with their squishy little bodies and the smells are really bad! I think baby mice are cute but I don't want one anyways! LOL

hehe...my gerbils donīt smell.
Just got them out of emergency 3,5 years ago.
I dont want any again after these two, but now that I have them, they are kind of cute [8)]

Oh, and I know that gerbils are no kids  [;)] ...just wondered if the kids of doc (if he hase some...dont know) brought these rodents to his house, or why else he has some now...


oh...sorry doc, mixed some postings up I think

Yes, I think they are not really something for me either... somehow poor little things...
But my "caged animals" (ok, well, my rabbits are not really more caged than me...we share my room) are all second hand... think they have a better live with me than in a shelter or something...

At least your schools aren't off as long as ours.  Our schools are out almost 3 months for the summer! [xx(]

I am sooooo ready for them to go back!

Are you trying to curry favour with me?

LOL.. I have just reread this thread and owe everyone an apology as my head is not what it used to be and I seriously had thought we were talking about real rats and gerbils, rodents etc.. LOL.. I had no idea you all were talking rug rats(children)

Humble apologies!!

I think its time for me to leave ..... My mind is a mess..sorry..
