Some of you are multiple pet owners, right? I'm considering getting a pair of gerbils (landlord permission and birthday money pending), and my question is this: Do I have to worry about petstore gerbils bringing home diseases that my keets (or finches, for that matter) could catch?

Thanks!

I myself have had all kinds of animals at the same time. I cant imagine you letting your birds play with other types of animals so use cation there. Wash your hands after dealing with one animals before touching the next.
The only combanations that I have come across that have proved dangerous other than cats and birds is ferrets and small creatures. My friends ferret got a hold of 3 mice I once had, and the same ferret killed 2 of her birds. This was a long time ago when we were still teenagers so i have learned what not to do. But once her ferret killed he seemed different after.
A gerbil should pose no threat, but always use common sense.

I have a hamster and a parakeet, I keep them separated at all times and I have never had a problem. So, since gerbils are similar to hamsters you PROBABLY shouldn't have a problem. smile

Cluck - Do you have a pet squirrel??? (just wondering)

Yes I do! I found it in my front yard. When it was yelling I thought it was a bird. My dogs also heard it but luckly didnt eat it cause she was hidden in cobras old cage. The old cage was for to keep the baby chicks(chicken)from going to the neighbors house. Now there is no more chicks or chickens cause the dogs ate them,infected them,ripped their heads off,bleed them to death,scared them to death and also the bird flu killed 3/4 of the chickens. So Dino(squrriel)felled between the fence and the cage being safe from the dogs. So i apodepted him. Now he inside our home and got fat cause he went outside but he is sad also cause all the squrriels are hiberating i think. We called him dino cause when he was a baby he walked like a dinosaur.

So, he just roams around your house freely? What do you feed a squirrel? Acorns... laugh
(sorry about all the questions. Just very interested in your pet squirrel! :p )

yes he does roam the house freely. yet her sleeps in my moms coats and fills them with tolit paper(clean) and napkins. I fed Dino almost every thing I eat. Not chocolate or any posion for him though. Sometimes I got to my School and collect lots of acorn and give him th left over corn from the chickens when they died
