Scratching at the walls?

Postby CactusTheMuncher » Thu Sep 21, 2017 12:28 pm

My girl Cactus has been acting a little off of the walls recently, I take her out of her cage every day to cuddle but lately shes been scratching a lot at the walls inside of her cage. Then she will stop for a little while and then continue. Should I be worried about this? Shes not big and she has a really large cage. And also she was a rescue so I have no idea how old she is.

Sometimes they go through active phases like that. If you are able to bring her out more frequently and let her roam around a safe area I'd do that. It will help her explore and burn off some steam. My guy is like that. He wants to be cooped up as little as possible.

My boy Toothless has been bouncing off the walls the last two weeks, particularly hypo today .... into all sorts of mischief .... he's always been highly sprung , but he has been like a force of nature lately LOL ....

I know why
.... Spring has sprung and he's mega horny .... he was even biting at the side of Peppa's tub while she was doing slow head nods at him .
