The APERTURE PEASANT ENRICHMENT CENTRE features tissue hanging from various areas, cardboard tubes and a mass of shredded newspaper that they will have to negotiate in order to reach their food bowl. This is newly filled in addition to new sawdust and a nice clean tank. Lucky little buggers.

(Less lucky later tonight when I send the Roomba around to pick up all the stray sawdust.)

Among my (blood and honorary) siblings we call gerbils 'peasants', or 'pezzies', for obscure reasons connected to, of all things, Golden Axe high scores.
