Today my sister, Katrina, called to tell me that my degu, Dusty, has died. I'm sad. But
he has been sick for a over a week now so it is probably best that he died. Dusty was 6 six years old. Degus typically live for 6-8 years in captivity. I got him for my birthday in gr. 11. He was so cute. Degus are very social animals and love attention from their people. Dusty loved to be held and used to just sit on my shoulder. He would also give kisses. He loved to get let out of his cage for hours of running around the family room. Although, his all time favorite activity was spinning on his spinning wheel. He would spin for hours and hours. He was quite the fit degu. His favorite treat was, of couse, sunflower seeds. He was a great pet and I will miss him very much.
