Last night I moved the cage over by my daughter's bed and left the
cage open. One by one they slowly came out and got to the bed. After
they felt comfortable, I started chasing them with my hand and
wrestling with them. Oh what fun we all had! They are about 3 months
old now and they can run FAST! They had a lot of fun when I got on my
hands and knees on the bed. What fun they had running up and down my
arms and legs and wrestling with each other on my back.
After about 2 hours of this (yes!), they settled down a bit and
started grooming me and then one by one they went back to the cage.
It was great! I guess I'm just going to have to keep changing it up
for them to stay interested!
Thanks for the advice.
