Smile Nuka & Luna

These are my degu girls, Luna and Nuka
They are 5 months now in August

We bought them three months ago, in May, to accompany our 5 year old degu, Hertta.

Her sister, Hulda, passed away in May, due to a respiratory illness
I miss her so much <3

Fortunately, Hertta and the new gorls get along great
At first, we had to go through an introduction process, and after a couple of weeks, we put them in the same cage

And, we had to build a larger cage, which is in one of the pictures

They have plenty of space there, and they get to be free in a safe room sometimes, to take chinchilla sand baths

They are adorable together

And some more photos of my degus :)

The pictures, that where the little ones are in a plastic cage, were taken at the time when we brought them home

So, in those pictures, Nuka and Luna are only 2 months old

Hertta is in one of the pictures too
She will be 5 and half years this October, and she is doing really well.

Nice to see Nuka, Luna and Hertta. Glad to hear they are all getting along.

(I also have a 5 and a half year old degu. Her name is Lilac. She has begun to experience teeth problems – I think it might be hereditary because her sister passed away June 2012 from teeth issues. I am pleased that Lilac continues to do reasonably well. Might be because I am making sure that she and the others get more calcium in their diet via dandelion leaves, clover, grasses etc.)

Thank you
Yeah, they are like a little family

Hertta takes good care of the smaller ones.

I am sorry bout Lilac´s sister.

Hertta had some teeth issues as well, when she was 3 years old.
She didn´t gnaw enough branches, and her incisors had to be clipped a few times by a vet.

But since then, she has been gnawing a lot, and her teeth are fine

Yeah, I feed my girls dandelion and other grasses as well

And I feed them Bunny Degutraum degu food, and good quality hay everyday. And some grasses, variably.
And as treats, some rolled oats and seeds from time to time

Is Lilac by herself then, or does she have a new companion?

I was worried, when Hulda died, that Hertta might get desperate.
I had heard, that lonely degu´s might get really sad and apathetic.

So, I brought 2 babies to keep her company

Lilac has the company of her four daughters. (I initially adopted what were supposed to be 4 girls from a local animal shelter. Turned out they were actually 3 girls and 1 boy! I kept all of the offspring. Azure's litter were all stillborn but Lilac lives with her girls, her other sister lives with her 4 daughters and father lives with his 4 sons.)
