Skittles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Skittles
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Gerbil
Home: Knoxville, Tennessee, USA
   Skittles 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!
