Lazy Sundays are the best. A nice lay-in is what my whole week is waiting for!
Not having to get up at 7am is also lovely when Dexter has been super noisy the night before.
Its like as soon as the lights go off he can make as much racket as he wants – and he takes advantage of the fact hes undisturbed in his playtime.
He never touches his wheel during daylight hours, he barely even looks at it! But soon as Im in bed and ready to doze off hes running a marathon on the worlds squeakiest wheel.
At least hes nibbled all of his chewstick now. Its once full honey and seed coating has all gone and were left to the wooden skeleton. This was noisier than everything else in that cage! Biting and scraping it across the plastic base makes such a loud noise – but okay it was pretty cute watching him turn upside down just to get a mouthful!
As you can see from the picture anyway, hes not given up on it yet!
I sound really bothered by the fact he was noisy last night but I’m not. It was kind of soothing to be able to hear him play and exercise and eat and drink, all whilst Im in bed (even if I am trying to sleep!)
Ive only ever seen him drinking from his bottle once – I know he does drink because the water level goes down – but I dont actually see him drinking which is worrying. However when I hear him attacking the metal dispenser thingy in the middle of the night, I know I have nothing to worry about. Hes just a bit shy!
Shy?! Who am I kidding – he loves the attention!
We have bought Dexter a new toy. Its called a “Hamtrack” and basically its for when hes in his exercise ball theres a little track underneath to stop him going too far. Its perfect size for when Im sat on the sofa and he can be in front of me so I can keep an eye on him. Letting him roam free in his ball isnt too much of a bother but he disappears into cubby-holes and into places I cant see him and I freak out that hes going to be nibbling a wire or chewing up the carpet.
I did have a video of the Hamtrack and Dexter not quite grasping the loop idea but I have only now realised that I have to be a paid member of WordPress to post these videos which is something Im not too convinced in doing right now. 😦
Ill set up a Youtube account or something and just post links perhaps, if people really want to see them? Let me know?
Are your pets noisy at night? How do you deal with it?
