    Sometimes you have to draw the line and you can't save them all.
    Someone will rehome him and hopefully he will end up with a friend too.
    I do hate this pets at home rehoming section especially as most that end up in there are originally bought from the shop in the first place.They can't lose as they get paid twice for the same animal:mad:

    I agree with toddy, you'll have to accept that you can't take in every animal. It's horrible but you just can't :(

    I agree. Plus, keeping a degu all alone isn't a good idea. And they can be fairly difficult to introduce at a later stage :(

    Sometimes enough is enough, can you afford to buy him, a friend, all the needed accessories? If not then it may be better to let someone else take him home.
