Jager's Progress

yes progress!! that's what i said...hehe mommy's so proud of her little baby!!

tonite while doing the standard: put my hand in the cage and let Jager smell it and i talk to him...he decided that he would go up to the higher level and smell my face thru the bars and so then i talked to him some more and he sat there and listened and then he crawled back down to where my hand was and nibbled on my index finger a little...this was like a first for him to do this! then he put BOTH paws on my hand and nibbled all the tips of my fingers and my finger nails!!! THEN he put his full weight on my hand and stood up on his hind legs momentairly!!! i'm so happy!! i know it didn't last long but he just calmly crawled off then went back up to see my face and then would go back down to my hand and put his two paws on my hand again and smell and nibble around.... it's good that he's nibbling his mom right? good thing it doesn't hurt at all!!! i think him and i may beginning a beautiful relationship of owner and pet

so that is my excitement!!!!! :hpydance:

P.S.

He still chews on the bars but not as often as he used to... i play Tori Amos and he seems to stop or if i sing...i know this is probly negative attention that encourages him.... but i dunno what else to do *shrug* Mommy still loves him!!

aaawwwww thats great news, the chewing on your fingers is a very good sign as it's a greeting that degu's use for one another and only do it if they like you

I'm sure he will be fine, just make sure your boyfriend gives him lots of attention and if he has time it might be worth him doing what you have with putting your hand in and talking gently to him as Jager will need to get used to him and by doing this it will be less stressful to him and he will settle quicker
