Just some questions because I am a first timer with my new fuzzy little man.
But 1st I will tell you a little about him. I just got him on Friday (8/31/2012). At a pet store. He had been at he pet store for about a month, they told me he was from a local breeder that comes in from time to time. He had a brother or sister with him that had got bought within the first week. They said he was born on Thanksgiving. He seems perfectly healthy and happy. I just want to make sure I am doing everything right... I have a big cage not sure of the size, but I know its big enough for him to grow and even have more room. He also has is dust bath, water, food, ramp, hay ball, and some chew toys for his teeth, the bedding is recycled paper I believe called "Critter Care". I still want to get him a ball to roll around the house and a wheel for inside his cage. So here are my questions for now:
1.) Is it normal for them to sleep a lot?
2.) He seems to drop pellets NON STOP.... I cant even hold the him without them being all over the place! Any advice?
3.) If he's not sleeping, he is sooooo full of energy its impossible to even barley hold him. he runs around and goes in circles, or jumps all over his cage until he makes himself exhausted.
4.) Is there any helpful hints for the bonding process?
Thats all for now, thank you for reading this. <3 Responses will be MUCH appreciated!
