Bert and Ernie at PetMeds

As the official cat reporter for the Pet Talk segment of this blog, it is important for me to cover important breaking pet news stories. This week’s hot news is about Bert and Ernie!

Daisy the Curly Cat shares some news

These are my Mongolian gerbils, Bert and Ernie, when they were just babies.  I think they were about 8 weeks old in this picture. Bert and Ernie are two and a half years old now. They used to live in a big glass aquarium in my home.

December 2010

I admit that I did not pay much attention to Bert or to Ernie, but Harley loved them greatly. He was always trying to get them to play games with him.


Sadly, the glass kept Harley and the gerbils forever apart.


Still, Harley  never gave up. One time Ernie even tried to bust out using his 4-wheel-drive vehicle. This plan did not work on account of his vehicle was made of cardboard.


But guess what happened? The gerbils busted out after all! Now they live in my Mommeh’s office at PetMeds!

Even though Harley and I do not get to see Bert and Ernie any more, they have lots and lots of visitors every day now.


Do you have any exotic pets?

  1. I am sure Bert and Ernie appreciate not having all those tappings and unexpected appearances. Not that Harley isn’t lovable….

    The gerbils are having a ball with all the new visitors and activity for them to check out. They’re quite curious little fellows!

  3. I would love to have gerbils (I used to have a hamster I loved her so much), but now I have 2 cats in the house (one of them quite the hunter), and I can’t imagine the tragedy if he was ever successful in getting them from the tank. Too risky. 🙁

    Bert and Ernie are cuties!

    You’re smart to be careful!

  5. I have bene meaning and meaning to ask after them! Good to know they are well and happy and that photo of Harley asking them to play with him just is the BEST ever!

    LOVE that 4 wheel drive vehicle they own!

    I have some bad news for you Katie: Ernie already chewed up his 4WD vehicle…

  7. My most exotic pets would have to be my humans…

    Hi Bella! They get lots of attention there, I think Bert & Ernie are happy 🙂

  11. Congrats to Bert & Ernie on their new home, we are big fans of theirs! We bet Harley will really miss them for sure (love the pic of Harley watching them).

    Yeah, Harley does miss them a little bit. But Bert & Ernie are having fun in their new home!
