Badger, the Pet of the Day
Name: Badger
Age: Deceased, Two and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Gerbil
Home: Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA
   This is in memory of our gerbil, Badger. Badger died in June at the age of two and a half. She is missed greatly. Badger was a gentle and playful gerbil, plus she was a devoted mother too. Badger had five pups, two of which we kept. Her son Spot still lives with his father, Pip, in our home. When the other babies were given to new homes, Badger missed them sorely. Badger was so named because her colors and markings made her look like a badger. We have become devoted gerbil fans because of the wonderful experience we have had with Badger and Pip.
