Default Re: To move or not to move?

Good advice from Souffle. With our Syrian, I leave him in when I am spot cleaning, but put him in his pet carrier in another room when I am doing all the substrate, as he gets stressed by hearing the cage noises and seems anxious about what's going on. So he goes on our bed in his pet carrier, goes to sleep, and then goes back in the cage when it's done (with familiar smelling bedding on top as Souffle says). He usually approves. He gets more upset if something is put back not in the same place! I don't clean anything else when doing the substrate change though, and leave toys, wheel etc to be cleaned another week.
