Well play fighting turned into rough fighting, then aggresison attacks and squeals so I quickly split them up(i would take out the one that was more of the victim) for a break then introduced them together again but when i did the aggresison was way worse and aggressor bit me very deep when I got inbetween them. Not even spraying water would have seperated them from fighting. So the victim degu came running up my arm from inside the cage and I cuddled him in a blanket for about an hour, he was scared to death and when i bring him into the room, he smells that cage and hides. So now I have to set up another cage which i dont have, so a degu(the aggressive) is in a cat carrier!
This is not my week. I sure hope someone adopts them b/c I'm loosing my patience fostering degus. I mean they got along famously for over a month, cuddily, grooming, etc then all of sudden they just turn(or I should one turned, the other was just defending itself) on eachother.
The poor survior has a patch of fur missing from his face, no other injuries that i saw or felt as he wasa bundled up with me in the blanket. He's so harmless and just cuddled in my lap and let me calmly pet him. Such a darling. Taking the bite for him was worth it.
