Quite fascinating to watch & very handy to see how they use everthing & spot problems.
I've been meaning to give it a go for ages, even more so now!

It is handy! I find they only tend to use the Sputniks if they have a tube leading to them or if they're next to a shelf. They both seem to like sitting in them though. It's also interesting to see the routine. A bit of wheeling, then they both did foraging and from the food bowl, had a drink and went back to bed again. Then a bit of exploring/playing and looking to see if there was a way out! Final thing was a big foraging of the food bowl before going to bed. Pickle spent a good 15 minutes at his food bowl at 3.30am - I was wondering if he'd actually fallen asleep in it but I think he was just carefully going through it, pouching some and eating some. Then it was like their night was over by 3.30am. But Pickle comes out early morning. So far Moo comes out earlier and retires earlier and Pickle comes out later and retires later. Either different preferences or I did wonder if it's because they can smell each other so take in turns. But as Pickle is on his wheel a lot I don't think it deterred Moo coming out.

All things we know they do at night but it's nice to see.

What a wonderful gadget! I definitely want one! Fascinating what they get up to at night.

Wow, so much fun! Their little eyes are truly standing out.
Are you also using glowing wheels? It sometimes scares me a little bit if I come to the living room with the light off.

No just normal wheels It's actually pitch dark - it's just the way the infra red picks things up. No idea how it works but seems clever to me! The camera sits in the living room and just records all night - no need for me to be there Although if you're awake you can watch it on your phone live upstairs in bed.

Toffeeham -you need one of these Our living room is like that - the switch is at the far side so you have to bumble around in the dark to find it.

That cap looks great! Thank you for sharing the link.
The camera setup is brilliant. I got the silent runner glow wheel with the hope to see my girl running in the dark, but it turns out that I can only see the glowing ghosty wheel spinning.
