Hi Ria,
That has never seemed to work for me so I upload to my Lappy and then resize as needed.
Madam was up this afternoon at 4.15pm which was unusual so I let her out for a run about in her ball. She turned her ball into a hamster maraca by doing a lot of very large poo's in it and scooting about the house making lots of noise....

Watch this if you want to see how a hamster can scale a vertical wall...!

This is Poppy at her maddest best, she amazes me no end who would have thought that a crazy creature like this could be so bloody determined and single minded and so clever...!

Thank you Ria, apologies for the slowness of response have had rather a lot going on of late.
Yes Poppy is quite a crazy lady who seems to have no fear..
So much so she actually likes sprouts too...!

Haha. She’s a clever thing . Reminds me of Newt trying to get over obstacles to get through the kitchen door.

Hi All,
Poppy had a major meltdown last night when I cleaned her cage and sand pit loo I have never seen her behave quite so crazy.
Also her behaviour has changed a little too, I hardly see her, when i do she sits in her wheel doesn't run in it, wants out when I am about to go to work normally too....
I have some pics still to sort and post, but with whats been going on the last few weeks haven't had the time or inclination.Things come along and really make life difficult, but we have to put a smile on and swim upstream yet again..

How often do you clean her cage Rads? Their behaviour does change from time to time but as long as there's no signs of any health problems I wouldn't worry, I've had a couple who really get upset by cage cleaning & just doing the minimum spot cleans & partial cleans when absolutely necessary kept them happy & avoided any stress behaviours.

Poppy gets cleaned about every 4 weeks just her nest and sand pit spot cleaning as and when needed she was fine tonight. Ghost used to hate even spot cleaning and would sulk like the worst teenager ever.

They can be very good at sulking! Good to hear she was fine again, that's not really too much cleaning so it shouldn't really change her behaviour much, they can be quite unpredictable sometimes .
