My Gerbil Needs Some TLC
Hey guys, first post in the Gerbil forums. I have a question about my Gerbil. I got him from a former friend of mine who if I didnt take him she was going to just let him run out the door in the middle of winter! She had him seperated from the other gerbils (because he "fought") and part of his tail is gone(I have no idea what happened) and she fed him bad foods for him. Physically he doesn't seem sick, but over the past 2 months or so he still hasn't warmed up to me or anyone else in the house. I've tried just putting my hand in the cage and letting him smell me a couple times a day and give him a treat sometimes. But nothing, he always clenches his eyes closed when we go near him and all he does is hide in his little burrow. How can I help my little Davinci cheer up?
