    North West England, near Manchester... i'm not sure if i'd be able to take them on yet though cos I need to buy a chest of drawers/table cos I don't have any surface space to keep them on :laugh:

    what colours are your girls? :)

    This is why i make people sign a terms and conditions form etc....so that none of my gerbils end up in rescues.
    It's always so sad when people give them up for stupid reasons e.g. my child has lost interest :rolleyes:

    i agree it is sad when things end up in rescues

    i wasn't too impressed with my friend that was meant to have my 2 females...she told me last minute as in like 1/2 hour before she was meant to come to get the pups that she wasn't having them because her land lady said no...i assumed she had already asked if she could have them!

    i'm glad shes not having them in a way...i don't really trust her tbh =/

    I'd love to have some gerbils. There was one when i went to get Leo from the RSPCA. He was in a tiny cage all on his own. He looked so sad :(
    I want to go and get him but i have never had gerbils, only hammies. I want to do a bit of research as to what they need etc first. Are they easy to look after? What kind of cage will i need? I just won a Freddy 2 rat cage on ebay that i was going to use for Leo. Would a cage like that be ok?

    i keep my gerbils in a tank as you can really fill them with sawdust so they can dig

    they are reasonably easy to look after yea :) they don't smell like hammies either :p

    best person to ask would be marica :)

    Hi, our gerbils have tanks that are filled with sawdust, this helps them keep fit by digging round the tank and making a mess of it all lol

    We tend to change our tanks sawdust every few weeks as this gives them something to do and also keep the talk clean. Usualy after we change the cage round the gerbils will get to work in makin it there home "Make a house a home". Hope yr gerbils are all well
