Thumbs up Friendless degu :(

Aw...I made it sound so depressing! Mirou is actually pretty happy. Her (brother? Sister? Pet shop sexed them wrong, just like everything else!) died a few weeks ago, but I know I want to get a new baby girl in April/May. When I was looking at first, I couldn't find ANY degus in Peterborough! I have no car to go out of town with...but worst comes to worst my aunt said she's give me a ride.
Does anyone know any breeders in the Peterboroug ON area? Its not urgent...but it would be cool to know if a degu in the area was pregnant, then I could reserve a female. I think my baby would like a new friend. Oh well, any information would help. She's only a year old. And eventually when I have money, I want to get a bigger/better cage. Gotta do research..think I might get my dad to build one. Any tips on safety or cages? What's safest, and cheapest? Thanks!

Have you checked the Humane Society in the area? I know that the Toronto one gets some degus in from time to time.

That's where I adopted two of my girls as babies.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss.

Aw! Thanks for the site! Its funny...at thought Mirou was a male at first (Pet shop sexed her wrong), and I actually almost adopted stumpy...called the lady up and everything! But I thought 2 adult makes would fight. I'm really hoping for a baby...but definitely need a female. You guys are awesome!
