Default Re: Meet Monty

I'd give Pip more time to settle in and then start taming.

Monty came right up to the front of his cage this morning when he heard us talk and Rodney was running around on the floor. Last night i watched him looking into neighbour Rory's cage. Not that Rory took any notice. He was too busy munching his veggies.
He's grown in confidence since i've started getting him out of his cage once or twice a week. Took some convincing though. I had to catch him at first because he run away but eventually he must have realized that nothing bad is going to happen to him. Building trust like with every hamster.

Excellent. Many hamsters don't like being picked up when in the cage, even tame ones. And I think robos do tend to run away. It is difficult. Our last one wouldn't even go into a tube with a treat in (too savvy and suspicious). I think as they get older as well it's easier - along with trust. Little baby ones are just so scared!

Same with syrians who don't want to come out - our first syrian never wanted to come out - he was a real house bod - it took temptation into a tube. But once he was out he had a great time.

Question Re: Meet Monty

I just weighed Monty. He's 45g. Bit on the heavy side for a Robo.
