Macaroni and Cheese are being adopted as a pair.
A gerbil will take little space in a home so you can enjoy a gerbil's company whether you live in an apartment or a house. They are busy little rodents, who if well cared for, tend to live 3 to 4 years. Gerbils are very frisky and can easily escape from a cage that isn't closed securely or set up properly. They are social animals and it is a good idea to have at least two (do not keep males and females together or they will breed). Gerbils love to play, chew, dig and tunnel. Like all rodents their teeth grow continuously. Its important to provide appropriate items to gnaw on, keeping their teeth in tip-top condition will prevent dental problems. Like all animals gerbils can sometimes become ill and require medical care.
