New Gerbils!!!

I am dee-double-lighted to breathlessly report that my polycule and I are adopting two beautiful Fat-Tailed Gerbils (the tails make them easier to remove).

We shall take delivery of them upon a fortnight.

Any tips, suggestions, or advice will be welcomed.

Are they rescue gerbils?

Will these gerbils have a better quality of life than most of the posters on DL?

Don't put one up your ass!

Fun fact: It's illegal to own a gerbil or a ferret as a pet in California.

They pair well with prunes.

OP is the Tucker Carlson of pet rescuers and I refuse to look up any of those words!

You cut off their tails?

It’s guinea pigs, r10. A lot more meat on the bone than a gerbil. I think consumption is mostly confined to Peru, where it appears unabashedly on the menus of even the most tourist-friendly restaurants.

Trim their claws

One correction, one response, and one question:

[quote] —The ghost of Julia Childs

Correction: It is Julia Child.

[quote] You cut off their tails?

Response: No, R13. The OP meant that because of their fat-tails, these gerbils are easier to remove from one’s ass.

Question: How many of these gerbils will fit in my Instant Pot?

Just bouncy rats.

Well I guess he had it coming.

But remember when you feed trolls they keep coming back.

Thank you, R13.

I, too, am an actual Back Bay resident.

I have no clue what this thread is mocking but, yep, OP sounds like that boring, pretentious twat to a tee.

R20, you might want to brush up on your expressions.

Fit to a T.
