I recently bought two Degus home from work (pet store), they recognised me everyday and I just fell in love! They are two brothers and about 15 weeks.
I have only had them a few days but they are so friendly... and hilarious!
Everytime I open the cage door, they leap at me! I don't even have time to really put my hand out, they both just want to come out and try climbing all over me! It is sweet but I am worried they will jump off me and run around the house - which would be great although I am super worried I won't ever get them back!
So at the moment I only allow them on my hands. I worry that even if they climb up my arms or shoulders they will leap of and run away but they are desperate too explore and I want them too.
If I trust them to climb on me, are they likely to leap of? Do they immediatly scamper when they are out of the cage? Will I get them back?!
I want playtime with them!
Thank you in advance for any advice
