Default Re: Hi from a little scaredy cat xD

Forgot to mention - they also respond to your tone of voice. Keep talking to her - remembering she's a baby. If you sound cross she will pick up on that and be defensive back. Just keep telling her she's clever and lovely - I swear they respond to positive talk!

To tempt her back in the wheel suggest putting a nice smelly bit of food in it - eg a little tiny piece of cheese or a little cube of cucumber.

They grow out of these baby habits quite quickly and get more tidy and organised! The other thing that can put them off using the wheel is when you've just cleaned it as their scent has been removed, but putting a treat in it should tempt her back.

Do check if the wheel spins properly though.
