Those pics are too cute! Now I wish my daughter had gotten one of them instead of the hamster - I just can't warm up to him.

Our cats are really enjoying the Degus! In the first pic, the degus are sleeping and in the other pics, the cats can't even see them

BTW~the Degus are getting a permenant home on Saturday and they will no longer be on eye level with the cats. Although, the degus don't fear the cats at all.

Well I want some! Have you ever had a problem with escapees and the cats? And what kind of a smell do those little guys make? Is it better to have two? My daughter would love to get something like that!

Insanity.

Degus are social little critters that need lots of room. They like to climb and burrow. Apparently, they grow to be about the size of a rat. They cannot be feed very much sugar and must be kept on a strict diet. Tomorrow, my babies are getting a cage similar to this and one day get them this!

I have had my gerbils since June 28, 2004 and there was one mishap. Some of their tubing went crashing to the ground. Luckily I was home and the cats were very confused. The gerbils roll in kritter balls while I am home, but if I take them out to play, the cats are locked up. Yesterday, I had the degus in a pen and of course one climbed out The cats were put away, but I was looking in the wrong area of the house--those buggers are fast!! As for smell--all I have read is if the cage stinks, the degu stinks.
These are three links I have found most helpful so far:

I wonder if my husband would go for something like that. He really wanted a lizard, then he was thinking stick bugs. But these are really cute little guys.
