Meet Piper

Post by elliriyanna on Sat 26 Mar 2011 - 21:20

[size="4"]Meet Piper my Mottled Russian Campbells craigslist rescue. He was a " free to a good home" ad and with him being advertised as a biter and unsexed not mentioned was he was also kept in a bi-level cage but confined to the bottom so he had less room than a CT and his wheel was too low so it wouldn't turn. Since I had everything set up for the mice ( easily converted for little Piper) I decided to bring this little one home. Sorry About the quality I cant find my camera cord. Tomorrow I'll upload better ones. I have let him out in his ball and petted him a little and so far no bites. I know I said no dwarfs but I'm SO glad I got this little boy. :D He's a joy already even if I cant handle him yet. The last one is a video[/size]

I think he was biting out of frustration and lack of exercise. So we'll work on it. He doesnt seem overly afraid of my hand which is good.

oh bless, thank you for rescuing. Quite often they bite just out of sheer fear or frustration.
We had a rat once that used to bite but it had never been handled. It was quite happy in an enormous cage, never did like being handled though..

he's doing great he already walks into his ball when I put it near him. I'm making him get extra exercise to curb the biting and I'm making sure he knows not to be afraid I just let him come out of the ball at his own pace and run around on me and pet him some I only pick him up when he runs too far since he would get lost easy but he doesnt mind. The guy was selling his other hamster for $40 ugh.
