Hi humans, rodent types, and anyone else reading this.
This is Jacob the degu.
The human caretakers took this photo of me soon after my fur started to grow back, and my sore patches started to heal up, so I thought I'd post it. Here you go:
My fur still hasn't grown back properly, and I still have some sore patches, but I'm doing better than I was a couple of months ago, which is what matters.
Plus, not having quite as much fur was kind of a good thing with all the hot weather we had this Summer. Not that I'm pleased I lost some fur where I was sick and stressed. I'm just looking on the bright side.
