Pumpkins play bin looks great, it does look similar to her cage & equally as nice for her

Your photo looks fine btw, maybe lacking a little contrast but not poor quality (I haven't looked on my iPad, only my computer), I saw how you'd made the broom, great idea, simple but clever & effective & Pumpkin posed so well!

Pumpkin's HoM pic is fantastic SKB, good job managing to get a pic before she moved

Her playbin looks great, she looks really small inside it. Pumpkin is a lucky girl, she'll be having lots of fun exploring and playing

Catching up with this thread!

I really enjoyed all Pumpkin photos. She looks very sweet eating her sprouts. Your collages are superb! Her new playbin looks very well too. I can understand why you don't want her roaming freely after what happened to Sherbet. I'm always worried sick too. My dad tells my that I'm being silly, that they aren't dumb, but we know that they aren't dumb but sometimes they do thing that they shouldn't. Anyway it looks like she's having a really good time

I love Pumpkin's posing in the pics.
The one with her face in the pot is so funny.
Super playpen and pumpkin agrees.

Thank you AprilPearl, cypher, BorisPasha, Hamsterita and Thin Lizzy. Pumpkin been loving her new playbin and has been enjoying spending the time when she not being cuddled exploring the additional space. Pumpkin used to bang the lid when she was in her old playbin to let me know she wants to come out for cuddles - although this bin is taller she now realised if she stands on top of her knuff shelf she can bang the lid and when I open the box she climbs up my arm for cuddles.


Pumpkin's Photoshoot - Out-takes

I'm glad that you like the photo I managed to get of Pumpkin for HOM - normally Pumpkin has other ideas and she thinks my ideas aren't as good as her but his time she knew exactly what I wanted. I was so pleased when I managed to get the photo I had wanted and she was rewarded with some dried mealworms and a monkey nut. It also nice to be able to do her photoshoot inside her cage where she feels more comfortable with investigating the prop instead of running off like she used to do when her photoshoot where done in her playpen. Here are a few other photos from her photoshoot:

I didn't do anything to make Pumpkin stand with the broom - I was letting her do her own thing with the prop and she decided to stand up holding the stick of the broom luckily I manage to be quick at getting the photo before she moved! Also as I attached the broom to the little bucket so it made it easier for her to stand up holding it!



Pumpkin's New Wheel - Trixie Wooden Wheel

Pumpkin's new wheel was delivered on Thursday - I was so happy when it arrived as I can get a little impatient waiting for my parcels to come. This wheel will be going in her playbin once I finished painting it with plastikote - only had enough clear paint to do the insides - as for some reason I had put an empty pot back inside the box where I store my plastikote, but will be getting more this weekend to finish painting the wheel so she can enjoy it in her playbin.

As I had painted the inside I thought I would see what Pumpkin's reaction was to her new wheel - well she loves it! She had an explore around the wheel initially before hopping inside and having a good run - as she was running in her wheel and didn't want to go back inside her cage I thought I would grab my camera and get a few photos.

I must say I'm very pleased with this wheel as I had wanted a wooden cork lined wheel for a while now so happy when I saw that Zooplus had started to sell this one for £9.99 (when on offer)- I also love that the wheel uses ball bearings so the wheel is silent (apart from the pitter-patter of her feet). The internal diameter of the wheel is 28cm/11". I'm even considering ordering another one in the future for her cage but at the moment I think Pumpkin has enough wheels - as she now currently has 3!

Here are two photos of Pumpkin trying out the wheel going in both directions!

I love all your HOM out takes Pumpkin really seems to be enjoying her housework! The photos look really natural too which I like a lot.
Her new wheel looks great, the cork wheels are nice & I'm sure she's going to really love having a good run on that
Glad I'm not the only one who sometimes thinks they have plenty of plastikote only to find the jar's empty

Wow, Pumpkin is a natural. She knew exactly what to do with that broom and did it all by herself! Neat idea, attaching the broom to the bucket. I thought Pumpkin had actually picked it up off the floor and held it like that! The new wheel looks really nice. I like the look of wooden wheels. My only regret about the silent runner is that it is plastic.

I've been looking forward to seeing Pumpkin's outtakes since last night after reading your post (my pc is broken so I'm borrowing hubby's tablet today to catch up!). They are just brilliant. I love the one of her looking in the bucket lol, it's so funny

Her new wheel looks really nice, I've not seen that one before but I like it Good to see Pumpkin enjoying it!

Those pics of Pumpkin and the broom made me giggle, she's such a cheeky helpful gorgeous girl.
Love her new wheel and pumpkin so does too.
