Aww, he loves his tofu.

Did you notice how he wets his paw and then scratches?

Oh wow, I did not notice. Do you know the reason for that? He often washes his face after drinking water.

I watched the video twice and saw! He licks his paw then scratches. You are very observant Ria.

It's not me being observant. It's what hamsters do. Their version of a wash with a wet flannel i guess.

I know. I can sit for ages and just watch hamsters washing.

Sometimes they wash when they are unsure or various other reasons. Like a human says "let's have a cup of tea and think about this" with a hamster it's "let's have a wash and think about this".

I love that. It is their thinking time. That is adorable.

Orko does not seem to have any routine. He gets up at different times every day. He seems to have lost interest in his new wheel. Lol. So much for that. For the past 3 nights he has only spent around 4 minutes in that side of his cage. I am waiting for a platform to arrive as I have 2 hides to go on it. I was going to put it in that side but I am not sure he will even use them.

I love how he will rest on his wheel after a run. He will even turn and go from one side to another which is just what I do when I try to get comfortable.

At least he knows that he has a spare wheel. Hamsters do get attached to things they like and the first wheel has his scent. The only way to find out whether its the familiar scent or the location is by swapping the wheels over, something i would not do, personally.

I would not do that either. I did rub the wheel with his bedding to help have his scent on it. Maybe one day he will use it again. He used it for two nights.

Maybe he just simply prefers the side of the cage with the purple wheel on. Or he wants his hoards and tunnels closeby to his wheel.
