Does anyone have experience with gerbils? I heard that they are very easy to take care of and that their droppings don't smell very much since they originate from a dry climate.
Lol, 8 months later. I told all of that to my mom already but she said no. I took her to the pet store a few times and show her the gerbils and ask her "Aren't they cute?" and she would say "it's disgusting." My mom isn't a big fan of rodents.0morrokh said:Nope, they don't shed at all. They're also very clean, nearly odorless, and very friendly. Probably the best rodent to get for those of us with...pet sensitive mothers.
yea, my mom isn't a big fan of rodents as well. so I asked her: "what if I kept it in my room? so it won't bother anyone?" she still said "no!" then we went to the pet store together to get something and I showed her how adorable gerbils can be, but unfortunetly instead of being the little angels they could have been, they were fighting violently over the wheel and my mom had a "great" impression : then she told me not to stick my hand in there to stop the fight and we (or at least she) proptly left with our stuff.0morrokh said:...to me they're just plain adorable. ;D
