Whenever I'm in my room I leave Hikaru's cage door open so she can come and go as she pleases. Yesterday and the day before I took some pictures :). Ignore the dust...it's from her dust bath :rolleyes:. She gets it everywhere. Oh, and I know her bed is looking pretty ratty. It needs to be replaced...I just haven't been to PetsMart recently. She's been pulling out the stuffing and making it into a nest or something :p.

For those of you that don't know, one of her eyes is always almost closed...it seems another degu had scratched it. But according to the vet it shouldn't bother her at all and it's been that way for quite a while. And I dunno why her fur is weird on her head...I'm guessing because she's molting.

"Hi mom!"



"These are my toys!"



Eating a piece of carrot by the window:



"Go away, I'm about to take a nap!"



Eating lettuce on top of the cage, lol:







About to jump:

She's beautiful!:blush: You don't need to explain the conditions of your home and hers. We all know what it's like! I think a messy house is a great sign of a happy degu!:lol:

aaaaawwww :lovies: She looks a picture of health and you really don't notice her eye at all :)

Totally agree happy degu equal messy cage. I can clean my boys cages out and within 2 minutes they have spread hay, food and cardboard everywhere. Its not so good when you get people coming to look at rescues though as it looks like you don't clean them out :lol:

Have you thought about introducing her to a female friend?
They're a lot happier in pairs :)

It's fine :).

Eventually I probably will get another degu. They just aren't too easy to find here ;). No one has even heard of them...including most vets/petstores.
