Cleon has been kinda weird since I put him back in his cage yesterday. He only got his nails done. I cleaned out his cage when we got home then put him back in his cage. When I put him back I left for a couple hours at around 3:30 and didn’t check on him until about 9 or 9:30. He hasn’t pooped or peed at all at that point. He wasn’t eating his hay or pellets and I guess not drinking his water. He refused to go to the other side of the cage. He would stop at the same spot and stand there and sniff. He did not want to go over there. He would take hay from my hand but not from the trough. He usually LOVES getting hay. He gets so excited except last night. I moved his water to the side he stays on, put some hay in another bowl and on that side, and now he’s eating his hay and drinking. He’s only pooped and peed a little bit and only in one corner. He wheeked SUPER LOUD this morning when he heard me grab his hay bag. Idk what it is. He’s never been like that before. I did everything I usually do, with floortime and cleaning the cage. He acted as normal while out on the floor. It was the time in between putting him back in the cage and leaving and coming back to check on him before going to bed. I did sit with him for about 20-30 mins, talking to him, making sure he would start eating and pooping again before walking away.

Maybe something has spooked him on that side of the cage? That's the only thing I can think of that may make him not want to go over there.

Hm, I'm not sure why he would act like that. I would still keep an eye on him. If he acts odd again I would look into a vet appointment just to make sure everything is okay with him
