The other night Poppy fell off the top of the cage in a box (should have seen that coming, box has been moved now).
She was hiding behind dressser and pile of stuff that is my floor, I got her back in the cage with a yogie.
They have allways stayed on and around the cage when its open-I guess they're eather home lovers or dont want to take the leap of faith to the floor.
Last night I took Poppy to my bed to put her flea medicine on but before we made it she jumped to the floor and diapeared behind the dresser again.
Is she trying to runn away cus she unhappy?
Just nosey?
I'm scared to let her out any play now incase she runs away cus my house isnt rat proofed. Im moveing soon and what my new room to be but in the mean time I have a problem :(

Nico is pretty hopeless when it comes to letting him run in a non-rat-proof room. He gets so excited that he's out, he doesn't even listen to me. When he's in his cage and I call for him, he comes, but out of it? Pffft. My room is filled with stuff he could hide behind and under, so on the bed he stays. Once he gets this "I'm gunna jump!" look, playtime's over. lol

The other night I had Peanut on the couch with me, and she was standing at the edge of the couch eyeing the coffee table. Then, all of a sudden she jumped, hit the edge of table, bounced of it, hit the floor, and then trotted, unphased, back to her cage. It was freakin hilarious to be honest. My male hamster does the same thing, except he'll try it four or five times in a row before giving up... it just cracks me up.
Haha. :lol: That's priceless.
