NOMS Day



My Not of My Species Special Friends are Pickles McHushpuppy and Go-Go Gadget, Miss Steffy's two guinea pigs. Unfortunately, I haven't learned much about them. They are about a year old and participated in Skeezix's Halloween contest last year. They are also very cute, but that's all I know about them. I have decided to extend my NOMS friendships to other of Miss Steffy's rodents and tell you a bit about Gerber the hedgehog.


Gerber is a domestic hedgehog and is probably a bit lonely now, as his best friend, Baby the Blonde Hedgehog, went to the Bridge recently. Gerber got his name because he absolutely loves Gerber's banana baby food. Gerber is a friendly little fellow and he loves to sit on Miss Steffy's shoulder, under her shirt. He also really enjoys getting an outing in his ball. It really rolls around well on the hardwood floors.

Gerber's a hedgehog who likes to have fun.
Across the hardwood floor he will run
All safe in his ball
Until Steffy will call,
"OK, Gerber, that's enough of a run."

Those crazy hedgehogs - they love baby food! Our cousin Columbus loved baby food with meal worms mixed in (he was a hedgehog, but he went to the bridge a couple of years ago).

Gerber looks fun to chase. Does he have kittys at home that chase him in his ball? That would be neat!
