The latest crazy habit of our Dexter has emerged.
After a very hot few days and a very flustered hammy we gave his cage a thorough clean out.
Replaced the majority of his sweaty bedding, removed the leftovers hidden in the corner of his bed, topped up his food bowl, changed all his sawdust, gave him more cool water and even treated him to a new chewstick (honey nut of course!).
So when we returned excited and newly fresh Dexter to his cage we observed the most entertaining behaviour!
He scuttled up to his bowl,
sat in it,
then rummaged and rooted around in it like a bargain-hunter at a car boot sale!
Bits of hamster muesli went flying everywhere in his excitement! I couldn’t help but say ‘Dexter, elbows off the table dammit!’ but I think hes in the rebelious stage as I got ignored…
Its almost as if he thinks that it was going to be taken away any minute so had to find all the best bit and stuff them in his cheeks before we had chance to steal his food.
The picture looks a tad blurred however this was the only snap of him I managed to get without his head buried in the bowl!
Also I apologise for the clashing food bowl and cage base – what am I like!
So you should all check out the new layout of the blog.
<<< got a fancy new side column and everything!
(I wont mention how long it took me to figure out how to put everything together because its embarrassing!)
My question for readers is: What are your pets table manners like? Should I introduce a naughty step into his routine or am I over-reacting? 😉
