Customer Question

Hi, we found a baby outside by the front door, but am not sure if it is a
mouse or gerbil. It has certainly got the long back legs of a gerbil and is not afraid of us.
We did bring him in as ther are lots of cats around here. He is eating gerbil/mouse food.
He is dark brown and has clean ears and eyes. Any ideas on what he could be please.
