So we let the girls adopt some rodents. They are cute though. Bridget really, really, really wanted a guinea pig. I tried to talk her into a hamster, but she knew what she wanted. Becca told me she wanted some mice. I said NO WAY! I just spent the last 5 1/2 years trying to catch or kill mice, we are not adopting any. I showed her the gerbils and she loved them. The guinea pig has been named Freddy and the gerbils are still nameless. Any name we suggest to her she just rejects because it wasn't her idea. My only real concern is that we don't know if the gerbils are the same sex or not.
