I feel terrible that I am letting my blog go to the wayside. Our move is approaching quickly and just so much other life related things but I miss my space here!! All my critters are well. The gerbils bin was not safe enough. As their substrate got higher they were reaching a curve and groove at the top and gnawing on it. I broke down and got a Really Useful Box for a cheap $14 dollars with Amazon points. Normally for this size (64 litre maybe? I cannot remember!) it is about $26. Not bad for such a well made, thick and sturdy box. The inside is smooth and flat with no grooves for the boys to gnaw on. I hadn’t planned for the topper (a cage top to a small commercial cage) to fit so perfectly on top of the lid. As if it was made to sit there. This is smaller than the last but they have slowed down a lot. ( I will have had them for 2 years in September I think) It will do well for our travel over halfway across the country and for the limbo before and after the road trip. My sweeties before the cage change.
