This reminds me of the photo I took of the first time Dexter was put in his ball!
This time around he is much more impatient and rearing to go!
As soon as the ball hits the floor he zooms off!
Hes mapped out the floor and knows exactly where to run now – clever boy!
His favourite spot is by the door (we keep it shut because we don’t want him running too far) but that doesn’t stop him sitting right up against the shut door and running along it in his ball!
I personally don’t see the excitement with a shut door but each to their own!
I cant help but looking at more recently photos and thinking I may have indulged Dexter a lil bit. He has most definitely grown – in the belly department mainly – and Im thinking a hamster keep-fit class may be in order…
In other news, got a few new toys on the way for this lucky hamster – which will posted about all in good time!
He is spoilt rotten!
We have also been shuffling his cage around, I believe the term is feng shui… ? Just to keep him active and exploring as well as make the cage easy to clean and look at. The cage Dexter has is a pretty standard two floored plastic cage (http://www.petsathome.com/shop/mini-duna-hamster-cage-by-ferplast-15984) which was £25.00 and came with all the basic starter stuff like sawdust, food, bedding etc.
Me and the bf have discussed reasons for this.
(my favourite excuse is that he hates us both and is trying to hide from us)
but its more likely he prefers the security of having a “roof” over his head – an instinct thing – which makes me feel super guilty about taking away his plastic house in the first place!
But we’re working on fixing up his bachelor pad in the best way to suit everyone.
He is so very very hard to please.
I have raised a diva of a hamster….
Just a quick question..
Do you let your pets do their own thing in terms of arranging the furniture?
Or do you decide yourself?
(I need to know I’m not being a selfish owner and wanting it all my way!)
