Scrunchy the Gerbil

Scrunchy the Gerbil


This is our newest family member Scrunchy. She is a gray rat gerbil. We decided to go with a gerbil instead of another hamster this time. Gerbils are a little more active than the hamsters. Unfortunaltely, to me they look more like rats! But the same house rules apply: Mom never has to do anything with it!

R.I.P. Marshmallow


October 2007 – November 13, 2008
Today our pet hamster Marshmallow went on to run in the Big Hamster Wheel in the Sky. Marshmallow was a good little hamster. She never bit anyone, except for the oldest daughter who always poked at her and probably deserved to be bit. She spent most of her life running around in her little wheel. The rest of her time was spent eating and sleeping. She traveled  out of the house once to go to church this past October for the Blessing of the Animals. Marshmallow was preceded in death by Fuzzy the Hamster.
A graveside funeral will be held after school on this the 13th day of November, 2008.
In lieu of flowers please send prayers that my children will not talk my husband into buying an Iguana!


This song has been in my head since I found out that Marshmallow passed away!
