I adopted two handsome degus boys, Arthur and Merlin (formally Pinky and Brain) in late July.

They are very funny and entertaining boys with strong, bold personalities. They love being talked to and are very gentle with taking food and being stroked. They love to snuggle with each other in their hammocks and hut. Arthur is the bossy boots and what he says goes whereas Merlin is more silly and tries to annoy Arthur who begrudgingly puts up with his naughty antics.

I had never owned degus so ARC helped so much to make sure I was prepared for these little cheeky boys. I don’t believe that ARC would rehome any of their animals if they were not 100% sure that it was a good fit, which I really respect. A big special thank you to Nicole and Joan who gave me so much helpful and invaluable advice. 💖
