ISN’T HE SOOO CUTEE!
I have to admit the reason behind such a lack of Casper-Coverage; myself and the bf have been a tad worried about little his behaviour as it has been different to all the other Syrian hamsters that I have previously owned.
Casper is a very shy hammy. He plods along very cautiously and hasnt really ‘set up home’ for himself.
Its hard to explain but he has split his bedding into 4 piles and made a bed in each corner. So he sleeps everywhere and anywhere that takes his fancy. He doesn’t seem to have designated places to pee (as far as I can tell) and his cage just looks untidy. I may sound like I am being picky but Syrians are very meticulous about where they pee and store food and sleep so its very unusual for Casper to be so “spread out”. Its unusual for any Syrian in honesty!
I am currently putting it down to the fact he is a newbie to his environment. He may still feel a bit disorientated or confused but I am just a bit concerned as I have never noticed such a struggle to adjust.
I am even braving the hamster-forum to see if anyone has similar issues for advice (yes I seriously am returning to that critical community – that is how concerned I am!)
I just want to be sure I haven’t missed something.
When I hold him, he is absolutely normal. He explores, plays and crawls around like any other happy hamster. Its just when hes back in his cage is where my worries stem from.
Apart from that, I have three very happy hamsters. 🙂
I am still working on some crafty bits that should be posted in the next few days so hope you’re all looking forward to that! 😀 I shall also update you if I get any (non-abusive) advice on Casper’s little predicament. Fingers-crossed he is just adjusting. Dexter has been his usually hyper self and Eve has been walking on the ceiling more than spiderman could ever dream of. She is such a special one 😛
