I'd like to make a sort of tongue in cheek acceptance speach, if you'll bear with me
I'd like to encourage people to get in touch if there is anything they are unhappy with or if they have any concerns at all, particularly at the moment while changes are happening on the forum. I'd like to reiterate that it's good to ask any questions you want on the forum, especially silly ones, the ones where your degu has been doing this weird thing for ages but it seemed too stupid/ embarassing/ unimportant/ complicated to ask about - the ones where it turns out loads of people have noticed the same thing and are really glad you brought it up! I think there is more than one way of keeping degus happy and healthy and that it's good for humans to openly discuss all the different ways. Let's bring back the happy!
