Nyx the black gerbil, 5/1/2005-3/1/2008
Rest in peace, little guy. I'll miss you taking pumpkin seeds from my hand. I'm sorry we didn't have more time together. I'm sorry I wasn't the best caretaker you deserved. I'll miss you , little guy.
He's turned the larger of his 2 cages into a burrow. Literally. It's filled with shredded timothy hay. I have given up trying to keep his food bowl unburied and just put his food on the platforms up above. Anyway, one corner is his 'bed', where he curls up and sleeps when he's not running around and chewing on his toys.
He decided he needed a window.
Then he decides to poke his nose out and taunt Max who's laying right outside the cage. It was hilarious. (No Max never swatted him or even bared his claws, let alone went above the solid area).
When Max left, he closed the 'window' back up again.
As an aside- Nyx is currently residing in the computer room, because while I'm on midnights and sleeping during the day, he's too noisy for me to sleep with him in the bedroom.}:/
