About Us
Basil, Manuel, the Pet of the Day
Name: Basil, Manuel
Age: One a and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Gerbils
Home: Weston-super-Mare, England
   These are Manuel (light brown) and Basil (grey), our gerbils. Basil and Manuel are best friends! They share a cage together and love to sleep cuddled up to each other. They both enjoy having a treat of peanut butter and the occasional sunflower seed.

    Basil was a Valentine's present from my husband and Manuel, who was from the same litter, arrived a day later. I have had a great deal of enjoyment from these two, watching them play and explore. They are really super pets.

    We named them Basil and Manuel after the characters in Faulty Towers, though these two gerbils are nothing like the personalities in the TV show, Basil is much more kind and gentle! We hope to have these two for many years to come!
