Meet Our New Buddies!

Here I am meeting my brand new buddies for the first time. Can you guess what they are?
Gerbils! Meet Bert and Ernie. They are just about 2 months old. They don't eat good foods, just nuts and grains and boring stuff like that. Oh and they like to chew on sticks.
Ernie is more active than Bert. He is already running and running on his fancy wheel.
Bert is black, but he has little white gloves and a white bib. I guess he is a tuxedo gerbil! He is a little bit friendlier so far, and already climbs into my Mommeh's palm.
I think Ernie wants to be a circus gerbil! I like the puff at the end of his tail.
Harley got to meet Bert and Ernie, too. Harley was only a little bit skerred. We are only allowed to watch Bert and Ernie inside the cage, on account of we might accidentally get too rough with them.
Welcome to our family, Bert and Ernie!

Eric and Flynn said...

They are cute. We can see you both find them very interesting.

Karen, author of "My Funny Dad, Harry" said...

That's cool. I'm sure they will provide you with lots of amusement. I bet Harley would love to play with them--maybe even EAT them up! They sure look like mice to me.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Oh how cute! Maybe yoor mommeh will get them a hamster ball thingy, so they can play wiv yoo safely? Under soopervision of course.

Marg said...

Wow, your family has increased. They are too cute. What good entertainment for you and Harley. Can't wait to see if they will wear some costumes. Have a fun day.

Forever Foster said...

Oh. My. COD! How did you guys talk your mum into THAT?!?!?!?! Aren't they just the cutest little gerbils :)

Sweet Praline said...

This is going to be very interesting. I love the stare down that Harley and Ernie are giving each other in the last picture.

weaverpat said...

Hey Daisy and Harley!
Those gerbils are going to be great pets!
Our Mommy bought us a mousie in a cage, but we can't take her out and play with her. We like to sit on top of the cage and imagine! Then we have to go and play with our fake mousies.

Pandafur said...

OMC! you iz SO lucky! If i had noo anipals like dat I wud be SO happy! i can tell you likes to watches they play but I wish you cud take em owt an play too! KEWL!!

Junk Drawer Kathy said...

How exciting! Did you make sure to tell Bert and Ernie that you can't just appear on the blog without being hilarious? It'll help if they wear underpants hats.

p.s. to Harley: Gerbils are not food. Stop looking at Ernie that way.

Lin said...

Oooooh, they are very cute! I hope your Mommeh lets you sniff them and lets you know that Bert and Ernie are family members and there is NO eating family members! We used to have hamsters and none of our kitties ever bothered them--even when they escaped, which they all do at some time. Have fun with your new friends and tell them we said "hi"!

crazykittykat1 said...

oh they are soooo kyoooot! They would be nommed on in our house so no gerbils here. Your mom must have wanted more critters to take care of, haha.

I can't wait cuz I know there will be new bloggy posts about these guys and you kittys.

Furkidsmom said...

"Lois Grebowski" said...

What cute furry widdle brudders!

Caren Gittleman said...

I love gerbils!! They are sooo cute! Welcome to Bert and Ernie!!!

I had a Teddy Bear Hamster when I was in college and I just adored him!

Hmmm...I think your Mom didn't let you play, not because you would be too rough but because you may EAT THEM FOR LUNCH!! lol!!

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh wow you have a super new TV to watch I bet you are never away from the cage. What fun and yes I think your mum is wise to just let you watch from the outside. MOL. Love that last picture. Hugs GJ x

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

What great entertainment Bert and Ernie are going to be! We hope you and Harley let us see a movie of them with your Mommehs' Flip!
Happy Thursday to you..

Kea said...

OMC! Breakfast and lunch! We'd be in a frenzy, trying to "play" with them if they were in our house!

Cara n Crew said...

Cory said...

Oh wow. I want a pet too! I mean, are you the first kitties in the CB to get your own pets??

carouselofliesandotherfunthings said...

Ooh! I wondered yesterday if it might be gerbils. I've had both brown and black ones and they definitely differ in personality. They're so cute and lots of fun! Welcome Ernie and Bert!

Hannah and Lucy said...

You and Harley are allowed your own pets - we want some pets now but mum said NO. She is a very mean mum.

Angus Mhor said...

OH MY GOSH, MISS DAISY! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! YOU'VE GOT A VERITABLE SMORGASBORD! YOUR VERY OWN DREAM COME TRUE! FOOD ON THE PAW!

I CAN'T STOP YELLING!

Of course, you're far too sophisticated, tenderhearted, and nice to even THINK of Bert and Ernie in those terms....aren't you?

AttieCattie said...

teehee, how did i knows Harley would be a little bit scaredy of the gerbilses! it is okay, Harley, they is way smaller than you. i keep trying to tell my mommeh i wants a pet but she is not listening, maybe you can talks her into it Daisy. the kittehs who Came'd Before hadded a pet mouse, named Herman. he would go in a ball and roll all around wif them.

The Island Cats said...

Wow, you got your own pet gerbils?? That is cool!!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Ah, your mom got you your own entertainment center.:)

Sylvester, Camille and Ava said...

Raymond and Busby said...

Hello Bert and Ernie! Harley is probably happy to have a couple more dudes in the house.

Grace said...

And what prompted this?

BeadedTail said...

Sparkle@sparklecat.com said...

Wow, do they ever look... uh... tasty! Yeah. Hm. You sure they're family members, Daisy, and not lunch? Maybe this explains why my human won't get any gerbils for us.

StarSpry said...

Pumpkin said...

Ooooo, noo toys... uh roommates! We don't have those in Hah-why-eee but Aunty Lynette used to have pet rats a long time ago. We only have Quincy but he's too big an skeery to play wiff. Momma sez he bites really hard too!

Pricilla said...

Oooh, the publicist had gerbils when she was a girl. They were two male gerbils.

uh-huh

She ended up with 17 gerbils.
She loved them all.

Team Tabby said...

We think Bert and Ernie will provide you with hours and hours of entertainment!

CCL Wendy said...

Now this is going a little bit too far! I know your Mommy likes to feed you raw meat, but live meat???

I'm just kidding. Bert and Ernie are very, very cute. I just hope they never get out accidentally -- or that you never get in.

Can't wait to hear all the stories about them!

Mr. Hendrix said...

OMG OMG OMG OMG *faints* wow wow wow dinner!

just kidding, kinda. mommy had gerbils growing up. make sure they are both boys cause mommy's "were" and yet they were little breeding machines. then the mom ate the babies twice. wierd.

she said they are adorable!

Ann said...

Katnip Lounge said...

Oh crumbs! The Kats will NEVER let this one go. I can see it now, one gerbil for each of them.

*sigh*

Mommy Trish

Cloon said...

Oh boy! I thinks we'z onto something here...congrats on the new mousies! How exciting! Daisy & Harley, you'z going to have LOTS of entertainment in the future. Way to go!

Camie's Kitties said...

Those look like really neat pets/toys. Little things like that are fun to play with if your mommie gets them an exercise ball. You can chase them, and they are still safe. We think you are very lucky to have two new pets/toys.

Cody and Gracie

OKcats said...

Gerbils are cool! Our mom and her brother had gerbils when they were kids. My mom's gerbil was named Pepe, and her brother's gerbil was named Messy James. Pepe was friendly and liked to be held. Messy James was a biter.

GrammyMouseTails said...

Hey I tfink those guyz are my cuzins!
they almost match the colors of you and Harley, cool. ernies little gloves are cute. I hope you don't ever run out of kibble at your house and tfhink your new pets are food!!! they should keep you entertained wif all their runnings around in that glass house box.

Uncle Bobby said...

Harley,

Uh ... no eating Bert or Ernie, 'K?

Uncle Bobby

And no scratching or rough play in case they ever get out of their little home. Make sure they always have fresh water, clean bedding and food. One time I forgot. Decades ago but still sad. :(

The Furry Bambinos said...

Oops, we thought they were mice! They sure are cute!

Purrs,
Padre, Panda Bear, Meerkat, Cookie, and Caramel (& fosters Sunny and Sky)

P.S. Panda Bear thinks they might be very tasty, in addition to being cute.

THE ZOO said...

do ya spend alot of tyme watchin them?? we kuldnt be trusted.

Maureen said...

AW welcome Bert and Ernie! Did you know that those two names are characters in "It's a Wonderful Life?" But most people will know them from Seasame Street. I wonder if Seasame Street got them from the movie...

Too cute!!!
