some firsts! Empty some firsts!

Post by disastervibe Sat 21 Nov 2020, 1:09 am

My babies figured out a couple of their foraging toys today, and Dandelion figured out how to climb to the top of the ladder! I'm very proud of them because where they came from they didn't have any foraging or climbing toys, and yesterday I remember one frustratedly trying to figure out how to get into this little hanging glass terrarium I stuck a little food into as one of their foraging toys. Today they've figured out both the terrarium and the plant pot thing I stuck some millet sprays into, as well as a swinging ladder.

Sorry they're a little blurry.

I'm finding mice to be intensely curious. They seem to never give up when they want something and will eventually poke their noses into every nook and cranny of their homes. Glad your girlies are enjoying their new, enriched lives and fun toys! Smile

They sure are! And they're so much fun to watch.

I just realised looking at the photos I posted and back at the cage now, that they've managed to figure out how to lower one of their hanging toys a bit, and it's the one they like to pull bits of loofah and stuff out of as nesting material... like they've made it easier to go back and reach. So clever!

They're a lot of fun to watch - so busy! Always racing around, arranging their stuff, and hoarding treats. I found it amusing to watch mine grab their ripped-up tissues and drag them all up their tubes into their beds until the space is so stuffed full I can't even see them sleeping in their nests. They're so funny and cute. Mine apparently spend much of their nights trying to bury their wheels. Laughing

Didn't get any pics of it, but I just wanted to say that for the first time today, Dandelion sat her whole body in my hand and comfortably ate there for a while! Before, she always kept at least one foot on the ground.

It's been around two and half weeks since I brought her and Tulip home (Tulip is still much more wary, but that's okay), and I've been spending time every night trying to earn their trust. They were completely untame when I got them, and probably hadn't been handled for the purpose of bonding/socialising... ever, so I'm very happy and touched.
