Default Petal and Stormy!

Today I got two Russian Hybrid girls from the P@H adoption centre. They’re both quite young still and were put in the adoption area because they had to be separated from their cagemates for fighting.

Petal is the Winter White wild colour and Stormy is a darker almost black colour (I think she’s dilute black?). They’re still settling in so I couldn’t get very good photos of them today. Stormy is in a Duna Multy and Petal is in a Mini Duna Fun (with the lower platform removed for deeper substrate) until I get my new bin cages sorted but luckily she seems happy with the space she has!

Congratulations. Hope they settle in well. Starting in smaller cages can help with building their confidence and taming.

Starting with smaller cages really helped with building Sundae and Marchie’s confidence! She’s already pretty confident and tame tho since the p@h staff interacted with her a lot but I’m sure the mini duna must be a palace to her compared to those tiny tanks pet stores keep them in!

Thank you! I’ve got a few photos that I’ll try to post tomorrow. Petal’s very confident and happily climbs onto my hand after a few curious nibbles. She’s been awake for most of the day playing and running om her wheel.

Stormy is still very shy around me but she’s slowly getting better! I’ve been able to handle her breifly outside the cage when I was checking her sex (p@h thought she was a boy and I was very suspicious of that haha) and she’ll accept seeds out of my hands. Her schedule is the oppposite of Petal; asleep all day ans awakke all night! She very talented on her flying saucer too! I gave it a spin to check it worked fine and she ran on to it midspin and started running perfectly without missing a step or slowing the saucer down!

Stormy’s just woken up and she climbing ontop of her little wooden house, so cute!

Aww, congrats on giving Petal and Stormy their magnificent home with you! I'm so pleased that they are already interacting so well with you and accepting treats from you hand. They sound so lovely and like such sweethearts. It's wonderful that they have opposite schedules so you have an opportunity to play with a little, fluffball regardless of whether it is daytime or nighttime. I had to giggle that Stormy was able to continue the speed of her flying saucer in midspin; she really is quite the ham! I look forward to hearing more about them and seeing pics of your two, new beauties whenever you have a chance. Have fun with your hamily; you are all so very lucky to have one another, and I am so happy for you all.

After getting to know their personalities and behaviour better, I switched their cages around. Petal needed more space, Stormy wasn’t adjusting to the Duna Multy well. Moving cages around ilike this is always a pain and but I’m glad I did it, they both seem happier now!

Stormy doesn’t seem to be a big fan of larger spaces (even with lots of hides, etc) so I think it will be a little while before she’s ready to upgrade to a bin cage (from the mini duna). She’s been building a set of burrows so you just see the substrate wiggling and a light fluffy head pop up occasionally.

Petal’s so energetic! She might even be more energetic than Mishka was! She kinda reminds me of a tiny puppy She’s also started to move on from nibbling my hand to licking it! I added the ‘fun’ adaption to her Multy (actually the Fun Large) and she’s been racing back and forth through the tunnels and onto the platform. I only added the lower platform because I find it difficult to get hammies out of the ‘Funs’ with both platforms in place.

I have some photos to post later, I can’t wait to show you how cute they are! I think some of you have seen Stormy already tho from the brief pregnancy paranoia post haha
