is my gerbil Harvey! He is ten months old and lives with his brother.
When I brought home Harvey for the first time, he didn't have a name for
him! I already had his brother's name, but couldn't think of one to go
with it! But in the end I was sitting on the sofa watching them explore
their new home and a Harvey's furniture delivery van drove past the
window! And that's how he got his name! I have five gerbils and Harvey is by
far my biggest. He is a big, long and slightly chubby ... cute gerbil.
Harvey loves food! His favorites are ... well where should I start!
Raisins, oats, dried carrots, fresh carrots, peas, scrambled eggs, toast,
apple! I could go on forever! Harvey is very cuddly gerbil he loves his
hugs which he has at least three times a day. His brother is the more
energetic gerb out of the two, Harvey more relaxed. Every day when I
come in at 2.30 pm he is there on the top of his cage waiting for a nut
every day like clockwork! and sometimes (this is extra cute) he has fallen
asleep waiting. He is such a lovely gerbil. So loving and enjoys his
hours of exercise running around in his playpen with his brother. We live
in England and they were born and bred here too.
