Izzy the Degu,  the Pet of the Day
Name: Izzy
Age: Six years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Degu
Home: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
   This is my degu Izzy. Not a lot of people know what a degu is, but they sure are cute and fun! She has loads of personality, loves human contact, especially cuddles and kisses and she looooves running around. Izzy and I live in Ottawa Ontario and she is coming up to seven years old this summer!

     When we first got Izzy, her name was Ozzy and she had a brother. Her brother unfortunately ran away and we couldn't find him. But a month later, I found a little surprise in her cage ... three little baby degus! So she was no longer Ozzy... but Izzy :).

     She made a great mom and was very sad to see her pups go to their new homes, but she's recovered and is a very happy little girl! She's very fast like a squirrel so sometimes she gets to run around my room. I just moved her to a larger cage, so she's ecstatic. So, this is my "weird rodent thingy" as people will call her, but you can just call her Izzy!
