By all accounts, lemmings have the Four C’s. No, I don’t mean color, cut, clarity, or carat weight, but cute, cuddly, colorful, and cool. Pictures of them remind me of a guinea pig or large gerbil, sans the long tail. Their fur looks soft and pet-able, but watch out for those large, rodent incisors. Like guinea pigs they come in a variety of colors—some sporting coats that are a blend of white, caramel and black. And yes, you have to be “cool” if you make the Arctic your year-round home (Rhode Island readers: this Arctic is not located in the center of West Waw-wick. Jus’ sayin.’).
