On an island where hamsters and skunks run free, there was one creature who dared to be different. One creature who knew the importance of fur maintenance.
His name was Digger: furball by day, fur dresser by night.
During the day, Digger the gerbil slept in his cage, like any domestic gerbil would. At dinner time, he ate carrot and played on his wheel. When his owners went to bed, Digger would sneak out of his cage and run around the bathroom.
Obsessed with fur hygiene, Digger often saw scraggly mice and rats running around the house and he knew that he had to do something about it.
One night, Digger decided to kidnap a mouse and groom it before releasing it back into the wild. He held a small comb to it's mouth and said, "come to my cage, or I'll kill you."
The mouse nervously agreed. Digger dragged the mouse to his cage and strapped him to his wheel. "If you move, I will spin the wheel upside down." Digger began nibbling off bits of the mouse's hair and then gave the mouse a mohawk. He then released the mouse back into the house.
The next day, a gang of rats came to the bathroom. Digger was frightened. Were these rats friends of the little mouse? Were they going to beat Digger up? Actually, these rats had seen the mouse's hair cut and wanted Digger to cut their hair too.
So Digger's hair cutting business was born.
