I have 2 gerbils and 2 cats. the older cat likes to watch the gerbils but doesn't jump on their cage. My younger cat on the other hand no matter what the punishment doesn't learn his lesson and just keeps jumping on their cage trying to get the gerbils. we have to keep the door shut when we leave, when we go to bed, or just plain not even in the room where the gerbils are because of my younger cat.
We yelled at it, threw water on him, took him out ourselves and nothing works. any body have ideas for how i can get my cat to stop harassing my gerbils

We had the same problem. What we did was put the gerbils in a 10 gallon fish tank. It has a hard top and the cat couldn't get in to them and if the cat stared and they didn't like it, they had little places to hide. We haven't had gerbils for several years, but I loved to watch them scurry about!
