||Two and a half months old|
my name is Dumbledore and I am a baby Degu. I was one of four born to my
mom Daisy, but only two of us survived.
I am bigger than my brother, though not by much. I am also just a little
lighter in color too. I live in a big bird cage with my mom and brother, but I
get to see my dad and uncle all the time because they are in a big cage right
next to mine. Mom talks to them all the time.
Tammy and Ethan, and Jennie get me out all the time to explore around. I don't
think I like it much right now. It makes me nervous and I try and find my
brother by looking everywhere I can. I like it when they get us out together.
I like it when I can climb up and see where everything is on Tammy's shoulder.
She has long hair and I can hide in it and feel safe.
Right now I am still drinking milk from mom, but soon I hope she lets us try
the stuff she eats in the cold bowl in our cage, it smells really good but mom
keeps turning away from me when I try to taste it.
They put a big piece of wood in our cage today with holes in it and I really
like to climb on it. It is my new place to look out and see things.
Well I guess I better go for now, Thank you for listening to me. I had better
get back to mom before she starts to worry to much. My brother said I wasn't allowed
to be gone for very long.
