Default HELP!! gerbil

my gerbils tail was sticking out of the cage and my cat came up and ripped half the tail's skin off!! The bone and flesh are still there and i know it should dry up and fall off but i need to know a few things.

i have my gerbil in a pair should they be separated at least until the blood is gone? Should i clean the cage to make it more sterile? Can the tail get infected? if so then what should i put on it to prevent infection (neosporin), also anything else anyone can think of.

I know they should be in an aquarium not cage but I've had gerbils for 8 years and this has never happened, i feel so stupid, PLEASE HELP!
