Default re: Meet Murphy

Last night he had playpen time, which is mostly wheel time @nd a bit of taming. I was trying to get him out of the playpen to put him back into his cage and he kept running away. I took out the hides, toys etc and still couldn’t get him to climb into his ball o transport him.

I slowly made his playpen smaller and smaller until it was two panels long by one panel wide. Without anything in it. He ran around a bit and then got onto my hand. He didn’t stay long enough for me to lift him, but he quickly came back. He did this quite a few times. So I may use this as a taming method, as well.

Too busy having fun to go back to his cage then

Sounds like he has devised a good taming method for you both to use It reminds me of one of SKB's previous hamsters, who also devised her own taming method

The Catch me if you can game. Sit still then just as your about to pick up your hamster, they run off and sit somewhere else. Last nights game lasted at least half an hour.

He only moved a little way and then sat waiting to have another go.

Naming is proving a bit of a problem. I have a few ideas, but unlike Willow. I have yet to find one I really think is best.

I totally understand. I often have that same problem - too many wonderful names to choose from. I often have my pet choose the name if no name calls out to me. Sometimes, I have the pet play a game to determine its name or sometimes I just wait a bit longer to see if any of their personality shines through that makes naming them easier. Good luck and have fun; I'm sure the perfect name will come to you.

Well Murphy is being a brave boy tonight. He was out a little later than normal, but is so busy running in his wheel, that the fireworks going off really nearby haven’t seamed to effect him.
