Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
The lounge is now the untidiest it has ever been. I have spent the last two hours (last 45 minutes with quondam) attemtping to recapture a most uncooperative gerbil who escaped some time this afternoon by chewing a hole through a SOLID PLASTIC WALL.

I am not happy. The sofa is propped up on a printer; the chinchillas are out of position, the armchair is on it's side cornering off part of the door.

However, as I calm down it is impressive to watch a gerbil run full pelt in one direction, leap into the air, turn 180-degrees then land running at full pelt.

A Bentley may be able to teach pax_draconis a lesson at the lights, but she could really move.

I blame the original parents for breeding troublemakers. The only consolation for how my back aches is the look on her little gerbily face when confronted with her latest prison.

After DoubleDarkAngel I sense I will be taking advantage of the carpet I can see and hoovering. What a life eh!

Erm, no...

I'm not sure when I do actually.

Perhaps this is why you are so annoyed this evening.

Ooo, your post took me back to happy childhood memories. Our gerbils escaped so often they managed to build secondary nests in the furniture, complete with food stores. Years after the last little furry chap departed for the great Gerbilarium in the sky, sunflower seeds were still dribbling from the upholstery.

Re: gerbils

The armchair has been well hollowed out by rats. Previous generations would disappear in there for hours - then it was a matter of on with the strong gloves and pulling about a dozen annoyed rats from their holiday home.

Re: gerbils

Don't get too confident, we used to give our gerbils their food in one of those little ceramic Shippams meat-paste pots you used to get - they chewed it into tiny pieces! How they managed that I have no idea.

Re: gerbils

Maybe the gerbils have evolved some kind of special ingredient in their saliva that dissolves ceramics and plastic.
