Casper has got oodles of energy. And by ‘oodles‘ I mean serious amounts of energy! In the picture above he had been running about on my bed for ages and then proceeded to lay down with my iPad as a pillow. CUTIE!
(Ps. Did you notice the About Casper page? I finally got round to putting it up the other day 😛)
So Casper has some funny habits but the majority of his habits are improving.
He has settled down his nest building habits – before he would build a nest in each corner, but now he favours the bottom right corner now – the first sign of normality for this hamster. He has also starting hoarding his food, burying it in sawdust so it looks like he has no food and I feel like a big meanie for starving him. Its his sneaky way of me filling his bowl up again. He gets a second helping of muesli and I wonder why he’s getting a tad porky 😛
But there is one ‘behaviour’ that I still cant get my head around. When he was out running like a loony bin on the bed (from the same time as the photo above was taken) he starting
scratching dancing freaking out acting oddly.
I have made a video of the ‘event’ but almost seem to have caught him doing it by accident. I wanted to take a video of him cleaning himself – if you have never seen a hamster grooming you are in for a treat – but seem to have caught his funny dancing. I want to call it dancing because he was soooo over-the-top 😀
Okay Im not really making sense… Just watch the video, here is Casper being a hyperactive hamster whilst out to play the other night. I start off by shaking his paw (like a Sir), he does his little dance, has a scratch and then has a big clean and continues running around like a mad-ham. Its cute, it made me laugh hard and its cute.
Got something AWESOME lined up for real soon too 😀 Keep your eyes peeled!
