I would call the shelter and see if they take gerbils. If not, post on craigslist in the lost and found to make sure no one is looking for it. Maybe put up a sign in your complex just to be safe. It could be some little kids pet.

@NoOneYouExpect:  Doh. That’s a tough one. I think a shelter might take it. If not, craigslist maybe?

Humane society. They usually have a section for small pets like that.

Get a snake? j/k

I know the SPCA shelter here has small animals, including gerbils.  The US seems to have a much wider range of shelters, so maybe there’s one specific to small animals in your area?

The secret to keeping gerbils with cats is to get a screen top with locking clips! HOURS of kitty fun!

@trueblue14:  We essentially did this with a fish. MY cat LOVES the fish.

if the shelter does not take them I know the local petstores (not like petco, a private place) always took them back
