I adopted 4 gerbils 2 years ago from my local shelter. I'd read up on gerbils first and knew they are rather sociable... they like company, but a strange gerbil can't be dropped into a group because they'll fight.<br><br><br><br>
2 or 3 months ago, one of 1 pair died, and the other pair started fighting so I separated them. They all seem happy living singly. Should I try to get two of them to live in the same cage (following the rules I've read about in pet care books), or just leave them as is? They seem happy living singly, and I still give them time out of their cages (one at a time).

I should have posted this in the "Companion Animal" forum.<br><br><br><br>
I forgot to mention... all 4 are female. The 2 pairs were adopted a month apart, and had been living as 2 pairs since I adopted them.
