personally id like other animals over a rat. i like things with fur. mice have fur i think and i might like them. but if i get something that my mom doesnt like it feels so disconnecting.
dang i love your gerbil cage. must of taken a long time. and if youse are commercial ones alot of money.
im hoping i can find them around here. im checking like classifieds and ive found a few. and i found a breeder in peoria and one in rockford selling chinchillas
. i found a forum and im waiting to be accepted. theres someone on there that lives around 25 miles from rockford that breeds chinchillas too. i think i the highest ill go is around 75 for 2 lol. but only problem is its more than that for one
i can always ask petland to order me some... but i doubt they can get them
