Here is a picture of little Treacle's first cuddle, earlier today....
She did very well for a first trip outside her cage and hardly squeaked at all. She was very happy with a soft stroke of her head and seemed much more relaxed than I thought she'd be.
It will be her sister Ruby's turn next!
And I had the bestest time with them tonight - I removed the platform in their cage and put in a new stick bridge to hide under, so they now have one each. They loved the new space, so much so that when they thought I wasn't in the room they ran around popcorning like nutters! Running in and out of the bridges, through the hay and then little jumps in the open spaces. Feel like such a proud parent that they have reached this milestone so early - only their forth night home with us !
