This is/may be a stupid thread but after already making a thread on poop I don't think I can get any weirder! :lol!: Basically Mo has been climbing my arm recently when I put it in his cage to get his bowl or move his tunnel or pick up stray poos etc. He doesn't *idk* hump it.(stay with me)He just stands up as though he's a meerkat presses his belly into me so he's on his toes and looks about. I suppose I'm just wondering does he want to play? Does he think it's a pig? Is he asserting his dominance? Though he often sticks his head out of cage (like in picture) so is it just that my arm is in his way?

How old is he and is he on his own?

If he is alone he might just be trying to have some interaction with you?
Maybe add a soft toy to his cage and see if he likes to be close to that too?

@Swissgreys he is on his own at the moment but not for long! There is a baby piggy that will hopefully be welcomed into his life very soon. He only doesn't have a friend now because of a health scare. I will find him a teddy to hug :)
