Stump, the Pet of the Day
Name: Stump
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Gerbil
Home: Orlando, Florida, USA
   This is my gerbil, her name is Stump, and, although obscured in the photo, you may be able to make out that she only has one forepaw. The other one was missing when I discovered her. Rather than have her live her (possibly short) life in a pet store, I purchased her and a sister for company, and she has lived a full, rich (for a gerbil) life in my home in Orlando for about two years. Her hobbies include chewing cardboard and burrowing, and her favorite foods are pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
