    Just been to pets at home with mum for dog food and they had the most adorable degu in the adoption bit, I fell in love.

    Came home to sort out a cage and place to put him .. off to get him in a bit :D

    Do you already have a Degu? As they need Degu company and should not be kept alone. Although sometimes of course there is reasons they are alone :)

    If you are new to Degu ownership feel free to ask questions etc.

    My pair are currently cuddled up napping :lol:

    How old is he?
    Longer you leave him alone/ plus his age will make things harder when it comes to introducing a playmate.

    Also make 100% sure he is male alot of people get confused by the cone mistaking it for a penis. But both males and females have this cone.

    It's just that there is so many things they can not eat or be housed in etc that I always feel the need to jump in with advice etc :lol:
