Nurk





This little fellow is called a Nurk. He's a domestic pest, typically residing between the washer and dryer (though they also have been known to nest behind dressers and under beds). His primary diet consists of socks (though he will only consume one per pair). However, specimens have also been observed grazing on ties, bobby-pins, pencils and pens, etc. Nurks generally avoid clean, well-kept spaces, preferring instead messy and cluttered homes to build thier dens. In such an environment they have also been known to snatch shiny objects such as keys or glasses and hide them at random (there is only one documented case of a Nurk actually eating a pair of glasses. Keys free of keychains, however, are more easy pray for a Nurk's insatiable appetite).

I love my Nurk. He is mine. I claimed him from the moment that you asked me to pick a name for him. *Sigh* JON, I MISS YO FACE. Get your butt back to Utah. It belongs here...
