Peculiarities of cage selection for degus

Degu or Chilean squirrel are incredibly cute fluffy animals with high mobility, easily tamed and trained in various actions. In the wild, degus' natural habitat revolves around many endless burrows. In fact, wild degus have been observed to form what researchers call "digging interlocking tunnels" to create a woven network of underground burrows, degus working in a coordinated manner.

In these dwellings, the animals can safely care for the young, rest, eat and communicate. Therefore, when caring for a degus in captivity, it is important to choose and equip exactly that cage, house, showcase, terrarium, aviary, which will contain all the amenities your pet needs to become a happy and healthy member of your family.

Degu needs a lot of space. Choose as large a cage with a solid bottom as possible and place it in a dry, draft-free room out of direct sunlight. The height of the house is just as important as the length and width. Degu loves to climb. If the cage is at different levels, the shelves should be covered with untreated wood to prevent the degus from injuring their legs. Cover the floor with special bedding such as aspen or pine shavings, recycled paper, or corncob bedding. Do not use cedarwood shavings that contain harmful oils.

You can buy or make a degu house like a birdhouse, that is, a box made of untreated wood or an old cardboard box that your pets will happily chew on. The degu food is best served in a ceramic bowl and fresh water in a bottle.

Deg needs a lot of exercise and stimulation, so it is important to provide the animals with a variety of toys. A large exercise wheel is a great choice.

Many degus like metal wheels with crossbars, but you need to keep a close eye on your pet to make sure it doesn't injure its legs. It is pleasant and comfortable to climb to the height of the degu with the help of branches of a maple or fruit tree. A large deep box filled with soft sandy soil provides a digging space.

Cardboard or wood is a favorite material that degus love to gnaw so much, by the way, this is what helps them keep their teeth in shape, grind them down correctly.

Keep your degu's habitat clean and remove dirt and debris daily.

Thoroughly clean a glass or plastic bottle of water once a day. You need to wash the dishes and the bottom of the cage once a week. After rinsing the cage, dry it completely before adding any shavings to the bottom.

Health

If you want your pet to stay healthy and active, you need to choose a cage that is wide and quite high so that not only a wheel can fit in this house, but also climbing ledges, a hammock or sleeping mat, a treat, food, shavings and other necessary toys and accessories. As the bottom of a cage with metal grates, a plastic pallet is considered an excellent solution.

DIY room decor from scrap materials

Home interior with a twist and a cozy atmosphere is everyone's dream. Did you know that it is not so difficult to create it? It is enough just to make an extraordinary decor of the room with your own hands, using your talents and materials at hand.

Harmonious inclusions will certainly give the interior a complete look, but only if they are adequately selected and thoughtfully made. Let's figure out what methods of arranging living space are in fashion today.

What is where

Do-it-yourself room decor from scrap materials can really enrich the atmosphere, but what and where will be appropriate? Here you need to focus on the functional purpose of the room.

This is a zone that unites all household members. In such a room, it is permissible to implement any ideas from painting walls to decorating furniture facades. The lack of artistic talent more than compensates for the ability to use stencils. Empty space on the wall can be used as a panel or painting with a “tasty” theme.

"Ideas for decorating this room with their own hands are usually embodied by the whole family"

Ideas for decorating this room with their own hands are usually embodied by the whole family. This incredibly brings together and helps to improve the family microclimate. The easiest way to decorate a room space is to cut out a figurine, symbolic for the whole family, from cardboard, perhaps even a capital letter of a surname, and beautifully decorate it with rhinestones, beads, paper flowers or in any other way. The decor for the room created by your own hands is inserted into a frame and a place is found for it on the living room wall. You can make several letters in this way and assemble them into words.

The capital letter of the surname will decorate the interior of the living room

Crafts from bottles, homemade vases, furniture covers, sofa cushions will help to transform the hotel interior. All these little things bring comfort with them.

This is the relaxation zone, so you shouldn't overload and litter its space. It is enough to add a couple of cute trinkets to the setting and the desired effect will be achieved. It can be a photo collage on the wall, or some kind of painting.

In my posts, I talk about the warm lamp world of my childhood. The topic is narrowly niche, and therefore not everyone will be interested.

As a child, we (90s), like all boys, raved about all sorts of ninzdy (these are such spy warriors). My friend and I even drew a cartoon in a notebook called "Ninja Fight" (1991). The pillar in the center of the screen is not really a pillar, but a wall in profile, such as a border. Accordingly, one ninja jumps over the border wall and attacks another ninja who was training at that time. And the battle began with the use of all sorts of bombs, stars and all kinds of edged weapons.

Improved the quality of the cartoon "Laughter and Grief by the White Sea"

Hello everyone, dear guests and subscribers!

This time I have a fairly popular cartoon, or rather a series of cartoons, which you asked me to improve.

Finally he got his hands on it. A wonderful cartoon, which I personally watched more than once in my time, and the wonderful voice of Evgeny Leonov instantly comes to life in my head when I just look at the title ????

I cleaned the picture from noise and scratches + slightly improved the clarity.
