Default Re: Meet Ragna

It was wonderful to see Ragna!!

He is lovely and so calm. You must be a very strong woman
to be able to resist the temptation to handle him.

The cage set up is just amazing and so hamster orientated that its not surprising that Ragna loves being in there.

I like the way you've arranged the entrance to Ragna's house. I'm rethinking Henry's house now and may make some slight changes next time i change his substrate. He always closes his door by shovelling it shut with substrate but this morning i found that he had jammed a thick stick across his door on top of that!!

Iím really itching to pick him up but we will get there. To be honest I saw him trying to eat through the guys glove who handled him roughly at the petshop and am very aware of how sore he can bite - lol!

Thatís funny because Ragna has already dug his entrance shut with substrate...lol. I have no idea how he plans on exiting!

I canít wait for the camera to come - yay!

Please send pictures when you make the changes so I can see.

Haha! These two guys think alike.

You are right. You don't really know how Ragna would react to a hand after the experiences he's had.
He did look up in the video when you spoke to him so he does reckognize your voice which is progress already.

I didnít think of that...he did look up so that is good. Will do some bonding in 4 days or so to give him time to settle in his house. Excited!

Luna sometimes burrows around in her house too and blocks off the front entrance. When it's time to wake up and come out, she just burrows her way out of the entrance and her little head pops out - it's so cute and funny to watch. One time she burrowed her way out from underneath the actual house then burrowed her way back in thru the front entrance.

That entrance is a mound of Fitch - hahahaha! I can’t wait to lift the lid after two or so days to see if he has settled ok and used his toilet. I also will do some bonding with him. So excited!

I lifted Ragna’s lid since altering things and I am happy to say that he has made his home in his box which is great news. I’m still scratching my head though because he has pulled the tissue and most of the bedding in his toilet and he now sleeps in his toilet. I cannot see his toilet at all but he came out of that section when a I lifted the lid. I did the sniff test and nothing is smelling. I think he is still peeing on his wheel. I took him out using his mug and he ran though my fingers but was very jumpy. I didn’t push it and placed him back in his box using the mug and placed the lid back on. I’m getting him fresh veg etc to freeze so he has a variety of 3 every 2 days. Will use that as a means of him getting more used to me. Any advice or tips?

Haha!! Ragna sleeps in his toilet! That so reminds me of Henry turning his big plastic toilet into a food shop.

If you ever want to read up on the carry on i had with Henry and his toilet arrangements read my thread "hamster is peeing in his house" on page 6 under Behaviour in the forum.

I think you are doing well taking taming slow. You could transport him in his cup to the bath tub and sit in there with him or a play pen, just for a very short time but you'll know yourself when the time is right.
