scratching the bottom of cage
« on: May 20, 2012, 09:11:47 PM »

Charlie have spent the last half hour scratching the bottom of his cage.
He was covered as normally and 15 minutes later he started...
and he is still going.
Tried to ignore it but scratching on plastic is VERY hard to ignore.
Tried changing his paper in the bottom of the cage since he had scratched through the paper that was already there.
I put in a food wrapped up thinking he was bored and not tired yet
BUT NO!!!
he will have scratched his way down to the neighbours by tomorrow the way he is going.
Heeeeeeeelp

Exactly what I did to Archie the Miner about 2 hrs ago. He digs for England and does some shredding whilst he is at it...all punctuated by 'Shhhhh....Night!!!'

Charlie have never done anything like that before.
He loves his sleep cage and his sleep so he will ALWAYS settle straight away.
The door was shoot and light out and i could still hear him going.
So loud!!!!!
Either he got tired ot there was no more claws left cus he did stop eventually :rofl:
Why are they so weird sometimes... most of the time :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
