Hi,

My friend wants to get gerbils so I told her that the rspca millbrook has over 100 gerbils. She went home and found gerbils at a breeder for £5 so she told me that there were 4 or 6 in the add. She said she wanted cheapest possible. And she found a tiny cage from pets at home for £10.

So I told her that the cage was too small and that she should get gerbils from a rescue because they are tamer and healthier and you are supporting breeders.

I also said that if your attitude is ' I want to spend at least money as possible ' then she isn't ready for a pet.
Then my friends took her side as one of them has any excuse to go against me.

What would you have done in this situation?
Was I in the wrong?

Edit: I was saving her from the mistake I had made getting pets from a breeder.

you are right.. pets cost money, just because they are tiny animals it doesn't mean they just need a tiny home :( you can only do your best x
