||One year old|
||Knoxville, Tennessee, USA|
is the sweetest but most curious gerbil ever! He loves to chew
and climb and listen to music. My sister and I were playing with him one
day and we let him run around on the dresser. We were just talking and
not keeping a close eye on him when all the sudden the radio we were
listening to turned off. We looked over and saw Skittles on his hind
legs with his front paws on the power button of the radio! Now every
time we play with him he chooses the music. Skittles is also a big fan
of soccer! He isn't good but he loves to play! He is goalie and whenever
the ping pong ball comes rolling to him he charges it! Skittles is
fearless. That explains the Lab/Rottie puppy who is his best friend.
Skittles always loves to meet new people but you have to give him space.
He hasn't ever bitten anyone but will hide if there are a bunch of noisy
people. We sure love him! Sadly, Skittles recently became really sick
and we have been told there's nothing to be done for him but wait, but
we love him still!
