He definitely has sulked a little bit, but he's still demonstrating all his usual behaviours now again. he spent a lot of the first night trying to chew and scratch his way through the plastic blockers. However when I got up in the morning I found out he had made a nest in his new box.
He seems pretty fine in himself, I haven't noticed a lot of difference with his behaviours!
Yes I'm happy that I would not have to have taken him to the vet! He's already got a long coat that he cleans quite a lot daily!

Good to hear he's settling down & adjusting to the change well so quickly.

He's definitely gotten used to sleeping in his box now, but he also keep scraping at the blockers daily too as if trying to get back to the old tube nest. I don't know if this is bad, as he attempts to bite it too.

He'll probably give up on the blockers after a while, give him as much distraction in the cage as you can, scatter feeding, whimzee dog chews & things like that can really help.
Don't pay him any attention when he does chew or have a go at the blockers as that could encourage him to do it more.
