9. Gerbils don’t live very long – getting a few isn’t a huge commitment
It can be a difficult decision to get a long-lived pet when you have young children in the family. You won’t know what kind of pets your children really want until they grow to be five or six. Gerbils can make great starter pets. By the time a set of gerbils passes away, the children should be old enough to choose the kind of pet they really want.
