    I couldn't find my old thread so I decided to start a new one.

    So....


    On 28/12/15 I bought home 2 precious little babies. We instantly fell in love and named them Pip and Squeak.

    Pip is the black gerbil with the white chin. She is the shyer (if that even a word?) one of the two.

    Squeak is the brown one and she is just likes to chew anything that goes anywhere near the cage.

    This was the day we got them:

    They have also had a cage upgrade :)

    I will try my best to keep this updated but we all know that probably won't happen haha

    Indeed.;)
    However it is lovely to hear from you and see Pip and Squeak again.:<3:
    They're looking great and so's the enclosure.
    Shyer is correct, though more shy is also acceptable. especially for extra emphasis. Shier is also used, especially in American English, but is correct in British English too.
    Personally, I would use more shy or shyer here and reserve shyer for someone lobbing something at something else as in a coconut shy. :)
    Sorry, i just finished teaching an English lesson. Can you tell?:oops:

    Well, Squeak looks really cute, but it's rather hard to tell with Pip! ;)

    Love them! I have rats, Desdemona and Cleopatra, and they won't let me take their pictures! Your babies are so cute! Do they bond with you?
