Pets have really worked with our son. They provide so much fun and relaxation to him. Since he lost his mum they brought noise and life into the house again. That’s before we even consider the help they have provided with his Aspergers. Best parenting decision ever to bring them into our house. Not such a great financial decision but fiddle sticks to that.
One day we will get a sensible pet. It certainly isn’t the walking dinner plate which is our boy cat. It most certainly isn’t the mad pup currently outside trying to play hide and seek with the butterflies. The hope was that the three gerbils would bring some much needed sanity to the house. Team Gerbils maybe a super hero team ready to assemble but they are also a unrivalled demolition team.
The first house they had was plastic and lasted minutes. The second house was compacted straw and met a similar fate. We upped the anti for the third house with a construction of wood and wire. It has lasted longer however last night Team Gerbils got to work.
To be fair to them they did stack what was left of the house neatly to one side.
Dad we need to get them a new house don’t want them to get angry. You wouldn’t like them when they are angry.
So it’s wooden house version 2.
Notice that in the time it took me to get my mobile to take a photo Team Gerbils have got stuck into the roof.
If this house fails then it’s a phone call to Tony Stark and it’s time for Ironman Armour.
