Another walk and an experiment

Well yesterday we managed to get out with Speedy for an hour which he love so here are the photos to show you!






And here is the view and the weather we had,a little chill to the air but not to bad!





Now on to the experiment:
We noticed Speedy was eating lots of veg,plants and hay during the day when he is with us but at night once he finished his bedtime veg snack that would be about it so he wouldn't be pooping much which is not so good.Normally he would eat lots of hay his veg and pellets through the night but not at the moment as he is still not eating his pellets I've tried 3 now still doesn't want them.
So I thought may be he is feeling a bit down during the night when he is in his pen on his own so I moved most of his Playpen into the back bedroom with me (I can't sleep in the same room as Speedy's daddy as he fidgets and snores a little and I am a light sleeper)and made it into a nighttime enclosure for him,well that worked he ate his veg and hay all night long and played with some toys too!The down side the first night he kept me awake,last night I did get to sleep eventually.
So now Speedy is eating all night long now too,Still no pellets but to be honest that isn't to much of a bother as he should be eating mainly hay and his veg and plants with just a small amount of pellets.checking his poops today and they are nearly the normal size with the consistency of his wild cousins poops so that will do me.Hopefully I will get to sleep OK tonight.

  1. Rachel glad to know that you have figured that one out. Do you think he would eat if you put him in hubby's room or just with you? Then the two restless ones wouldn't notice and you could snooze undisturbed. Keeping Speedy in our purrs and prayers.

  22. Ah, SPOOKY SPEEDY....I missed your update dear little man! I am sick too; I have laryngitis and now I think I have a bad cough.

    I am very relieved to see your healthy profile here...what strong and cute shoulders you have! teeeeeheeeee

    Mum is very wise to try out experiments to see what will work for you. It seems like you want to be closer to her....you be good little man, mum loves you. EAT UP!

    Thank goodness he is well. XOXOXOX

  23. Smart of you to catch on to what Speedy needed/wanted

  24. You know what Speedy... going outside for some adventures with a love one, and not sleeping alone... it is the best medicine.
    But you better let your Mom have some sleep. Otherwise she wont be able to go “into the wild” with you.
