Em loves animals.
As you can see here, she is holding our gerbil Gus Gus, with tender loving care...
I was unfortunately forced into an impromptu anatomy of a gerbil lesson as she is holding him upside down. I begged her NOT to give kisses, while I tried not to pee myself from laughing so hard and of course get the one in a million photo.
* Disclaimer, no gerbils were harmed during this hands on moment. Gus Gus is very welled loved in our home.
