The gingerbread house or the gerbils? The gerbils are not food.
I have 4 kids and all have them have had gerbils when they were younger. They all had two each.

I remember when my son was younger and it was obvious that his gerbil was on it's last legs.
I took the gerbil out of its cage and said to him "mate hold him in your hands because he's going soon"

So he held his gerbil, with tears in his eyes and his gerbil died whilst he was holding him and as I was hugging my boy. I cried with him too, not because the gerbil died but because my son was devastated.

Parents suffer twice:
Once for the situation
And once for their child's suffering.
