I've got a pet Degu. (a hamster like pet, that looks like a squirrel and a girbil) It is starting to get cold in Canada, and so is my room. He is also by the window this year and I'm not rearanging my entire bedroom full of furnature again.
I put my lava lamp beside his aquarium cause I was thinking it might be cold for him. I fell asleep watching tv, and woke up in the middle of the night to see him huddled up beside the lava lamp instead of his little hut. I decided to leave it on for him, and just slept with the covers over my head.
I can't leave that thing on all the time though. I'm gonna pull the aquarium back from the window as much as I can, and shove a blanket between it and the wall. I am hesitant to buy that fluffy white bedding stuff for him in the pet store, because it's so damn expensive, and you can only reuse it so long.
I was wondering if anyone is more experienced with little animals that would have some good suggestions for me.
