Oh, I love them! The color variety is pretty fantastic.
Thanks for the pattern links- I may make stuffed versions of my own rats.

Hi all. Just to to let you kn ow that my stuffed gerbils were a big hit at the gerbil show in May. I am still knitting gerbil but I improved on the pattern. I made the tail look better and more fuller like a gerbils. I took 3 strands and threaded them in the back and braided them. Works like a charm. Did anyone make any of the rats or gerbils? I would love to see them.
