To leave the wheel in or not? Empty To leave the wheel in or not?

Post by River Sun 26 Jun 2016, 9:39 pm

As you all know, I'd ordered a flying saucer wheel once I noticed the current wheel getting too small. However, complications always seem to pop up with my luck, and now I've been forced to order the wheel all over again.
The current wheel is too small now, and I really don't wanna risk their backs... So what should I do?
How do I keep them happy while we wait for the saucer??

What size is your current wheel?

You could just make sure to give them a lot of play time and fun toys and MES to keep them busy and active until your flying saucer arrives.

They won't die without a wheel for a week. If you are talking small like 4 1/2", then take the wheel out. It's really harmful for their backs. Like Callalily said, lots of playtime and toys will keep them occupied until the new wheel comes.

It's a very small silent spinner - I got it as I thought I had a larger one I'd upgrade to when they got bigger, but I don't have the standalone piece for the large one, apparently.

Alright, wheel is out.
