Hi humans, rodent types, and anyone else reading this.
This is Jasper the degu.
We've really had lots of human visitors lately!
First we had the furry Carl human bring his Tory human for a visit, as well as this other human that our humans were calling "Dad" for some reason. That was a fun weekend, despite us being a bit confused by the two types of humans with similar sounding names.
Then, a couple of weeks later, this other human came to visit. This one was a Kevin human, and he brought a dog named Trigger with him.
The Kevin human gave my ratty sister, Star, and my degu brother, Jacob, cuddles. Then he talked and talked with the Mummy human, while the Daddy human tried to convince the Trigger dog that there was no way he was going to get to play with us; no matter what he found to use as a trade item.
Mostly we degus just pretended the Trigger dog didn't exist. Our ratty sisters were more curious about him though, since they've not met dogs before and wondered what he was. Our gerbil brothers thought he was much too big and scary, so their cage got moved out in to the kitchen so they could have some piece and quiet.
Anyway... It's certainly been an eventful few weeks!
