Can I live with dogs?


Can I live with cats?


Can I live with small pets?


Additional information

There can be other pets in the home but the gerbil enclosure will need to be in a room that can be shut off from any cats or dogs.

Family and environment

What kind of family am I looking for?

Gerbils rarely enjoy being handled so do suit a family who are happy to watch them, over trying to handle them.

What type of environment would suit me?

Gerbils are best housed in a large fish tank or an Ikea detolf display cabinet as they prefer to live underground, so need the ability to dig deep. The ideal size tank for a pair or small group of gerbils is 100cm wide by 30cm deep by 30cm high. This will require a mesh lid constructing to keep them secure and well ventilated.

About Tom

Tom is looking for a gerbil companion to share his forever home with. His favourite activity is tunnelling into deep bedding and he can often be heard burrowing. He is an independent gerbil and is looking for a gerbil experienced home with confident handlers.
