||Nine months old|

name is Luke, and I have two female gerbils, this is Marley. Her sister
is dark, so it is easy to tell them apart. Gerbils in the wild live in
groups, so my parents told me it is better to get two, so they will not be
lonely, especially when I am at school.
Marley is very curious, and she likes to play. She makes a pile of
shavings inside the tunnel sometimes and sleeps there, or she and Zoey
sleep curl up next to each other, it is so cute. She likes to run on the
wheel a lot, and sometimes they both try to go in the wheel at the same
time, usually Marley wins, because she is faster than her sister, or maybe
she just is more stubborn. They are fun pets to have, and I got them used
to me, and hwat I smell like, so after the first day, she didn't bite me
any more, I think she was just scared. But now we know each other, and she
likes to come out, and have a sniff around. I love Marley.
