How Does THAT Work: Gerbils!

You know I LOVE my gerbil pals BERT and ERNIE. Today I am going to EXPLAIN where GERBILS come from!
Bert and Ernie are MONGOLIAN GERBILS. This means they come from MONGOLIA. They live in SEMI-DESERT and STEPPES. I am pretty SURE it is very BORING there. Once Bert and Ernie got TOO BORED, they decided to LEAVE Mongolia.
So they PACKED up all of their STUFF and LEFT! I am pretty SURE they WALKED because HITCH-HIKNG is DANGEROUS.
When they first got to AMERICA, they went to a PET SHOP. There were lots of TOYS and and lots of FUN stuff to do there. So Bert and Ernie were HAPPY for a while. But then they got LONELY and wanted a REAL family. So they came to live with US!
Now Bert and Ernie are HAPPY all the time!

Lucky Bert and Ernie! They've come a long, long way!

Lin said...

Hooray! I love a happy ending. :)

I like the "hobo" look on Ernie--that is very cute. I'm surprised they don't have little pouches like hamsters do. That would be really handy for carrying your stuff while you are traveling.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I did not know they traveled all that way! Did they need passports or anything? And what about all that talk of getting rid of illegal immigrants? Are they legal?

Amber-Mae said...

AHHH great story! So Mongolian Gerbils came from Mongolia huh? Who knew that! I can imagine how bored they were in the dessert. They are so lucky to have finally found you as their family!

I expect that's exactly how it all came to be...

Eric and Flynn said...

Thanks for explaining it to us Harley. That was a very long journey for them and must have worn their little legs down. We bet they had long legs like kitties when they started.
