Sami was abandoned, along with 12 other gerbils, in such a way that they were inflicting serious injuries on each other. Rabbit Rescue Inc. took them in and gave them the second chance they deserved, along with the medical care they needed. I adopted Sami when I was looking for a buddy for my other rescued gerbil Zeus. In the beginning Sami was a very frightened little guy, he spooked at the sound of my voice, cringed at the smell of my hand when offered treats and stayed hidden most of the time. Today he is the most relaxed and fun loving gerbil who loves to hang out with his buddy, zip around his exercise yard, sit on my hand for a treat, and climb up onto my shoulder for a look at his new world.
