About Us
Kahlua, Bailey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kahlua, Bailey
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Gerbils
Home: Pennsylvania, USA
   This is Kahlua and Bailey, Kahlua is the orange one, Bailey is the brown/grey one. They were taken in as their previous owner had become allergic to them. They are gerbils, and as gerbils are very social creatures it is always good to have two so they can keep each other company. They are both fast and funny. They love to dig through all their bedding and chew on anything cardboard. They spend a lot of time rearranging and tunneling, and are quite industrious girls. Their favorite treats are sunflower seeds but they do not get them often. They also love to play on their wheel which is magnetic and is on the side of their cage. Did you know their tail can fall off if you grab them by it! WHOA! So they are not the best pet for a small child who might accidentally do that. This helps them in the wild, as a predator ends up with just a tail, and the gerbil gets away safely. They are very very sweet girls and love to be petted, but not held. They live in Pennsylvania with me Tara, and their human daddy Paul. We love them both very much.
