Struggle to Freedom

Beside my writing location is a little white gerbil named Olafimage

On occasion, he is allowed to leave his box and run around on the floor. We have allowed him to do this often enough, that he wants to get out every day, and run around.

His box has a lid which we keep open a small amount to allow fresh air to circulate, in addition to the air holes in the box. For Olaf, it is a struggle, to try to get out. Sometimes, he can be found trying to jump up the walls, trying to get out. On occasion, he makes it to the top of the wall, and can be seen sitting on the fence, as it were.

He is a good little gerbil, and with a little coaxing, we are able to get him to return to his box without to much difficulty.

    He’s so cute. My gerbil covers up his food bowl just the same after I refill it. It looks like a great box – places to hide and sand to roll in and a nice wheel. Nice 🙂

        Yes a lot like yours really, places to hide, chinchilla sand to roll in for his coat, a nice wheel and a little house to curl up in with some nice soft bedding. 🙂

    We had gerbils when my sons were young. They are adorable.
