Default Re: Help! I think Rosies scared what do i do?

Hope everyone had a good Christmas. Thankyou all for your words of encouragement. I now see Rosie every night as she comes out when i put the food in. I think she is out more as i can hear her usually either at the water or chewing the whimzee. Shes still not on her wheel though so i am now looking to get a new wheel for her i have looked at both the karlie wonderwheel and the wodent wheel. Amity and cypher -They have 2 sizes the karlie showed 2 sizes on zooplus and the wodent i noticed theres also a robowheel. So i just wondered if you knew which size for a Roborvoski. Cypher could you also let me know where to get plasticote and does it just go inside. Thanks.
Daisy has now stopped going on her wheel as well for some reason nothing wrong with it and now doesnt seem to be up much. Has anyone else had this problem?

A 20 cm wheel would be about 8 inches(7.87402 to be exact)and would be more than big enough for a robo.That's the smallest I'm seeing,but it would probably work just fine for a robo.

Given the design of the wood wheels I doubt you'd be able to bury the stand though,which means you'd run into a similar issue as with a Silent Runner and it having a solid stand.

That such good news, Rosie does sound as though she's getting her confidence back now.
The smaller Karlie wheel, 20cm is the size you want, I'm not sure about wodent wheels but about 20cm is fine, not sure which wheel you mean by the robowheel either sorry.
You can buy plastikote from amazon & a few other places it may even be available in shops like B&Q, I get mine here just be sure to get the water based, it says on the jar & has a plastic lid unlike the non water based unsafe paint which has a metal lid.
I would paint the whole wheel, you can get away with painting just the inside but I find it makes cleaning easier if you've already water proofed the whole wheel & I do find sometimes pee gets on the base too.
I've never had a ham stop using the wheel so unless there's a problem with Daisy's wheel too I'm not sure why that would be.

I think Rosie is definitely getting more confident as she was out last night each time i woke up i could see her. She was even using her wheel! I didnt see Daisy much though. Is it possible she can smell Rosie out so keeps hidden? They have always been in the same room but i know she did this when i first seperated them. Its a good job you mentioned there are 2 types of plasticote i presumed it was all safe! Rosie is definitely getting back to her old self which is brilliant. I just have to work on Daisy now!
