This is Baggins the gerbil; taking a break from my current digging project to say "hi" to you all.
I LOVE to dig! My brother, Bilbo, enjoys digging too, but he tends to be more interested in constructing burrows that are pleasing to the eye, where as I dig for the pleasure of digging.
The humans say if I keep it up at the rate I'm going, I'll break the gerbil digging world record. I'm not sure what that means, but I haven't broken it yet... At least, I don't remember breaking anything... *Looks confused*
Anyway, when I'm not digging, I like to have a good nibble on whatever's to paw; even if it's just the metal bars of our cage. Never under-estimate the feel of a good bar between your teeth!
If I'm not digging, nibbling, or bouncing over to say "hi" to whichever human - or degu - comes close enough to the bars of my cage for me to know they're there, it's because I'm sleeping.
OK, I'm no good at staying still, so I'm off; got more digging to do if I'm going to make my daily digging goal!
