My first thought was that Honey and Lychee, the two female gerbils, being a Juneteenth Day Ancestors Free 1776 July 4th Black African T Shirt, sweater couple, had flown to China and adopted the 7 babies. But, since I didn’t find even one miniature passport with itty bitty blurry buck-toothed snapshots, I next suspected instead that water was inadvertently spilled on their cage, causing them to gremlin-out all over the place. As I watched aghast, the newborns, with eyes still closed, in a scene reminiscent of a bad Hitchcock sequel, each paused a moment from suckling to wobble upright on tiny hind legs and gleefully rub their minuscule front paws together. All of which is to say: I need a home for nine gerbils. You want one? Or TWO? They’re really awesome. Make great pets.
