Pets :-)

Meet Brain, Lonesome George's new friend! I guess George isn't so Lonesome anymore, lol.

Here's Charlie's new pet, a female argente gerbil. No name yet.

This is my little girl gerbil, a pied agouti. No name yet either.

They love each other :)

Gideon being all sleepy.

Bams sleeping on the bed with her daddy (Charlie is passed out behind her, he's had a long week at work).

Colt being bad. He loves the bathroom... drinks from the toilet like a dog and sleeps in the bathtub like a silly boy.
