I hope this works! This was their first proper floor time as a trio. They have all had un-sanctioned floor time individually before. OH is worried about them peeing on the carpet. We were creating a human barrier between the safe dining room and the wires-everywhere living room and computer table


The camera doesn't seem to have done too well!

Mm, thought I'd get a nice little thumb nail, but the link does work!

Aww that was lovely to see them running around! Mine for some reason don't seem to get the idea of floor time - they sniff around everywhere and then just munch on hay until I put them back in their cage - and THEN they start zooming around! Yesterday I took Barnaby out of the cage and put him on the floor (they're usually in a large pen for floor time) - he had a little sniff around, the went straight up to their cage and put his paws on the side until I put him back in!

Aw, lovely to see them all running around like that :) They look slightly nervous but enjoying the adventure all at the same time. Little stars, all three x

They'll be nervous first few times but soon get used to the freedom and feel safe. My 2 used to have a whole room to roam around in as they pleased, they only chewed a small patch of carpet behind their cage and a bit if skirting board when they were young, then never bothered again, they seemed to grow out of it and just chew what they were supposed to chew.. . Luckily! And the toileting was mostly kept inside their cage. Hopefully yours will be as good, fingers crossed.

They were out again today, two lots of about 20 mins. No toilets fortunately, but they were quite busy running around but slightly less...manic? than yesterday! Had some popcorns for everyone, a particularly massive one from Chewie this evening. As soon as we got them back inside BB just flumped behind Chewie - until she realised there might be food on the way!
