I Feel Terrible...
Sometimes I let my gerbils run around on the couch for additional exercise. Today I let one of mine run on it. She was all over the place and kept climbing up the backrest. As I was watching her, my brother placed a freshly painted canvas on the couch(I was un-aware he put it their at this time). My gerbil climbed back down and before I knew what was going on she ran on top of the canvas. Once she ran off the canvas. I pushed the canvas of the couch and examined her feet. They were covered in green paint.
I decided I would fill up the sink with about one eighth of an inch of luke-warm water. (Just so it would lightly soak her feet). This however, was not a good idea. She stepped in to the water and began to try and scramble of of the sink. Immediately, I put my arm in for her to climb on. She ran extremely fast up my arm and cuddled up on my shoulder. Some of her fur was wet from all the commotion so I grabbed lots of tissue and piled it up on the couch. She was fast asleep on my shoulder, I gently placed her in the mound of tissue.
The poor thing woke up and was still not dry so she once again scrambled up my shoulder. She remained on my shoulder for at half-an-hour and she woke up and was pefectly fine. The paint was all of her feet aswell. I just thought I would share this to you guys.
