Dexter is a bit unusual in the fact he wont go scoffing anything and everything you put in front of him. Hes a very fussy boy in reality.
As you can see from his food bowl, there is an array of titbits in the hamster muesli which Dexter will pick through.
The sunflower seeds are the first to go so I think we know what the favourite treat is there.
Then the peanuts, followed by the dried banana slices, then the green flakey things which eventually leaves the bowl with these little green and brown pellets. I think its normal for pets to pick out their favourite bits of food so Im not too worried about the fact he despises these green and brown pellets.
Im also trying a range of fresh vegetables in his diet to make sure he stays hydrated throughout all that playtime!
Dexter then discovered broccoli.
He loved nibbling the end bits and munched away until he realised there were shoulders to climb up nearby which was distracting.
Fresh greenery always needs to be given in moderation as too much of the good stuff and they’ll get upset tummies and diarrhoea.
We then put the stalk into his cage and waited until he rediscovered it on his explorations – which didn’t take very long at all!
He prefers the ends rather than the stem but seems to have enjoyed it all because checked again on the progress of the broccoli shortly after and realized it has all been gobbled up – little piggy!
Were going to keep giving him different treats over the next few weeks to see what is the favourite!
Next on the hit-list is baby corn so we shall let you know how that goes down!
🙂 Comment, like or follow Dexter!
Still so much more to show you all! 😀
