I was accompanying my family around town and we had to stop to help pick up some bathing dust for a relative. I went in and, as I've not been in a pet store for a bit, saw these "Degus" ... small rat like things for sale.
They looked intruiging, and after googling some, found out that they're a step above hamsers, but doesn't need the dedication of a dog/cat, and they can be somewhat clever.
Still, anyone keep any here and can share some stories/advice/information? Thinking about keeping a pair or 3-4, I got a enough room for the cage.
I was told by the internet/UK sites to not buy them but to go rescue them due to the huge number in circulation. This seems favourable and would cut costs down somewhat so I can invest in a better home overall. Plus it's likely they are pretrained too!
Going to bed now, will reply/monitor thread in 9 hours!
