For anyone who keeps a gerbil in a cage... how the heck do you do it?
OMG what a pain in the tush!
I have seperated my 3 males permenently (after a de-clan), at least untill we can build my split tanks for them.
I only have 2 10G tanks left and 3 gerbils. So I pulled out the emergency spare, a Habitrial Safari Cage I purchased a long, long time ago.
I put Peej in there, since I new he would not chew the bars or the plastic wheel (the other boys would). But holy smokes WHAT A MESS!
I am vacuuming up everyday now, i have to wear slippers into the gerbil room, he tosses the litter everywhere out those bars!
It's only been a couple days and the absolute mess is driving me crazy!
I'm going to make my boyfriend walk in that room with his bare feet, maybe it will help him understand how bad i need a split cage built! (And i need his help!, But he's a procrastinating engineer
Oh and I also tryed putting cardboard in the bars to keep the litter in, he pulled 2 of the three peices into the cage.
