Fingernails: Yup... my girls think they're my personal groomers. Wait until they try to clean your ears for you.

When you clean the cage, try leaving a bit of the old bedding/litter in it, just so that it still smells of them... it might help with the skittishness.

Are they truly skittish or just running around checking things out? Do they hide after you put them in and jump at small sounds instead?
