I am coming here with amazing
news!!! Bae, Mika and Isabelle are living together now!
the story if you'd like to read it...Isabelle after Monroe passed away was super lonely so I was introing her to Suzie, Mika and Bae. They had great out of cage play time but once it was time to try the cage she was good with the girls but wanted nothing to do with Bae and got pretty pissy about it so for the rest of December and January she lived by herself and they just had a 1-2hr play date each day on the bed. I thought it would stay this way. Well after Suzie passing away in early February Bae and Mika were pretty mopey. It was saddening so I wanted to try cage intros again but got some help this time. I contacted MRR specialist and they helped me out. Kind of pointed me in the direction of "stress is key for bonding" so. After scrubbing the cage to bits and new hammocks/toys I put everyone into the same cage after play time. I then while they were in it, moved the cage across the room and while in the process of doing this we vacuumed the whole room, which they hate the noise. So possibly a mixture of this and then play dates every day for almost 2 months - they didn't even put up a scuffle!! They are living happily ever after together!!
Here are some photos to share!
Bae and Isabelle cuddling together last night.
This was right after I put them in together and finished vacuuming. I sent this picture to MRR asking for good luck wishes! haha. It is kinda bare because I wanted new toys none of them have played with before and that was challenging. But I did put a bucket of shells and rocks in there for them to dig through and then some oat grass I grew.
Their first "WE JUST MOVED IN TOGETHER" pose
- you can see Bae is avoiding them, he is wondering what in the world I did to him considering he has to hypers on his hands now! He had his girl Mika who was hyper and then laid backed chilled Suzie, welllll Isabelle is worse then Mika boy!! haha
Also just because they seemed to really love this I thought I would share. It is the bucket full of rocks and shells. They are loving it and dig through it nightly - kind of noisy, lol.
