it's just so random i had to post it
i've been kinda-sorta looking for a buddy for my single male gerbil, Bunker... when I got him i thought i was buying two females, and, well, suffice to say the pet store got it wrong. so he's been a bachelor ever since, but gerbils are social and should really have buddies.
so the other day i was in petco and thinking about that, and when i got home i found a "classifieds" forum on the American Gerbil Society (yes they do exist) website. it wasn't that busy there (several weeks between some posts) but on a whim i posted that i was looking for a single male gerbil in western NY.
ten minutes later i get an email from a girl in Syracuse who had the exact same thing just happen to her when she bought a pair of "females"... and i'm probably headed to the Syracuse area in two weeks for the SUNYAC men's ice hockey finals. the best part is, her sister goes to my college. so if she still wants to find a home for her male, i guess my Bunky's getting a roomate
just had to share!
