searching for advice....

hey degu lovers like me (i'm searching for all advice/input) i put this in the chinchilla section but would also like all your guys' feed back as well if you have any... THANKS



well as my title says...i may be bringing home a chin tomm. (i'm in dillon, mt my hometown and i live in missoula, mt which is about a 187 mile drive) but a family friend is selling their chinchillla w/the cage to me for $40 i don't think i can say no...i'm gonna go see him/her later today and get some details.... he currently doesn't have a wheel and doesn't have a dust bath sad for the lil chin.... so i think that i have to buy him just to make sure he/she lives a happy life. they don't have time to hold him anymore now that all their kids moved away to college and they know he/she's not getting the attention needed.
well i will post more info when i get it
but when i looked at the lil chin on saturday it kinda 'spat' at me and jumped at me a lil but the came up and nibbled on my nails and licked my fingers a little and was really looking at me like who are you!?! haha. but hopefully the lil chin will confirm to me that it wants a new home....

any input/advice would be wonderful! (as i've never owned a chin and i currently own a degu (for like 3 weeks now))

Thanks you all!!! (ahead of time )

THNX My new chin is way exciting and cute I just got him and me home (to missoula) and we are all good. Before i owned Jager, my degu i had bought books and etc. on Chinchillas and planned on owning one...then *poof* my degu was cheaper and caught my eye so now i own both and i have plenty of time and space....so it looks like a chin is 'in tha house'
