I've just done a little spot cleaning and added some more bedding. Here's her cage now, any suggestions for improvement?

That looks nice and cozy. Have you ever tried adding a couple of degus shelves? Available from Amazon and screws onto the bars so can be placed anywhere. My Syrian likes sitting on them.

I have thought about it but if I'm completely honest she doesn't really go onto the shelf already in there. Maybe in time so I'll probably buy some if/when I know they'll be used.

Also...I noticed Edwina? Kept that quiet. When I last checked it was Percy, Henry and Gordon

Hi all, I weighed Athena again today (weighed her the day she came home as a base). When I first got her she weighed a tiny 83g. Today only 5, days later, she weighs 127g! That's a gain of 44g. I'm so shocked! I've double and triple checked and the scales still say the same.

Question Re: Meet Athena

UPDATE

I think I've been productive today. Managed to spot clean all 4 hams. As well as wipe down wheels, shelves and anything else plastic. Cleaned out bottles and bowls. Given them their mix as well as some salad leaves and kale (they LOVE kale). Weighed everyone, health checked everyone. All in 2 hours. New record for me.

Athena is doing well. Gets very vocal when she's on heat. Probably because she knows Ghosts in the room. Oh well. I've weighed her again and she's maintained her weight. Hasn't gained or lost a gram. She's looking a lot healthier. I think she needs to gain just a little bit more as she's still a tad sunken in around her face, but that may just be her, we'll see what happens.

Do you know why she only weighed 83g when you got her from the rescue? Do you know anything about their history? I wished i'd know something about Percy's history but adoption centres and rescues don't always have this info especially when animals get left by the back door.
