Gerbils?? Aren't those nothing more than glorified rodents? >_> (My sister use to keep those things, and I remember one incident where I woke up in the middle of the night, felt something "gnawing" on my big toe...and one of those gerbils had escaped and was there at the foot of my bed...nibbling on ME! *Shudders!*
Caxi? Are you still around?
