Happy Degus Now!!!!
Thanks for all the tips in my last post. My little ones are doing great today. They enjoyed all the romaine and mushrooms last night and emptied two food bowls full. Have gone to work on the bowl full this morning already and had their morning snack of sweet potatoes.
As for socialization, they are both running around in my lap now and they actually let me give them a quick rub now before jumping back into the safety of their cage. We are making quick progress.
I do have a sore finger this morning, as I made the mistake of reaching down to pet my male with sweet potato smell still on my hands. They have nipped at us several times, but just curious nips...nothing hard until this morning. Darwin bit down hard, but in his defense he thought I had another piece of sweet potato for him...that is what he was looking for and hoping for.
They are so sweet, I'm so glad we adopted them.
