i basicaly saved my gerbil

when my baby gerbils reached 4 weeks they started to eat gerbil food and drink water but a couple of days after four weeks one little gerbil wasnt moveing or running around and she was dehydrated (i think thats how u spell it) so i thought i would take her to the vets but before that i tryed something.



i knew that gerbils lick the sides of there chambers they dig out in the wild for water and i saw her lick the side of the cage so i had a idea and put water and my finger and guess what she wouldnt let go, there minnie was licking away at my finger!! and i slowly moved it towards the water bottle and i kept tapping the end of it and minnie started to lick that and i moved my finger away and there she was drinking!!!


i felt so proud i helped my little gerbil to know where to get water
