Lovely update chesca So glad you enjoyed the trip, I can imagine how happy you were to see all the pets again & I'm sure they've thoroughly enjoyed being spoiled
Hermes sounds adorable, hope you can post some photos of him sometime, would love to see.

That is quite a difficult decision to have to make about LJ's future, I think if he's happy in his current cage & is over a year old now maybe an upgrade to a larger cage wouldn't be so important in comparison to having more out of cage time & spending more time with you.
If access to the vet should you ever need it (hopefully not) is easier from your mums then I think that would be a bonus too.
I'm the last person to comment on toy storage space, my whole house is brim full of ham stuff lol!

So nice to have an update and that you had a wonderful holiday.
I agree with cypher, you trust this vet near your mums should you ever need to go, fingers crossed you don't. Larry-Jasper seems happy enough in his present cage.
Maybe staying at your mum's is the answer.
I tried clearing out some hamster stuff and ended up keeping it all as I recalled happy memories with it.

Hi chesca, good to have an update about all the goings on with the animals.
I tend to agree with cypher and TL. At Larry-Jasper's age, I doubt he will need the upgrade to a larger cage. He would need one at the new house if he was only allowed out to play with you so infrequently. The preference I believe should be for you to have regular contact and care of him as he is getting older. Also the vet is important. As for the toys, could you take a box of those you don't need so often to the new house? You could bring back any when you decide to use them. That could help with storage. I just think you would miss him too much if he was at the new house.

Glad you enjoyed your trip! I'm sure all the pets are happy to have you back.

I didn't know that dogs teethed. How interesting! Though, I imagine, also potentially a bit destructive lol. Sounds as though he is learning fast though.

The Jasper situation is, clearly, your decision. But, if it were me, I would keep him with you in your Mum's house. He is happy in his current set up and I think it's more important that he will get the top quality care that you give him every day, rather than having a bigger cage. If you keep his cage in a room which Hermes is not allowed inside, he will be just as safe as if he were at your Dad's house. Plus, he's your hamster! He's used to you and you would miss each other if you only got to see him at weekends. Just my two cents worth, but as I said it's your decision to make.

Your time away sounds amazing. Nice to see you back again.

Keeeep him at your mums full time!!!!!! You can store stuff at your dads place and it will be like new again when jasper sees it next.

I agree that a bigger cage isnt as important esp at this stagenof life plus you can have more play time with him if he is with you full time.

Puppy sounds like great fun. I love dogs.

I have got a new guinea pig and a trio of roborovskis while you have been away!!!

Glad you enjoyed your trip Chesca It sounds like the pets were as happy to see you as you were to see them.

I agree with everyone else, I think if it was me I'd take him to my Mum's. Of course though the decision is entirely yours. Whatever you decide you will do the best thing for LJ
