I have always been an animal person. As a child we always had a cat, dog and even fish in the house. Then when I became an adult, I discovered the wonderful world of gerbils.
My road to gerbils began a little over 10 years ago. I recently moved into an apartment and wanted a pet. I did much research and decided on gerbils. My co-worker was a breeder at the time. She gave me two gerbil pups. They got me started on a lifetime of loving these little fur-balls. My hobby of knitting and recently sewing steered toward making stuff for my gerbils or gerbil related merchandise. When I found the American Gerbil Society, a whole new world opened up to me. There are people that love gerbils as much as I. They are now my gerbil family.
