Thoughts? How often do you let yours out?
- Thanks for the Memories
Every time I clean their enclosure, I reconfigure their "playground." I have a stockpile of 1-foot sections of large-diameter pvc pipe with some connectors at different angles for making series of tunnels for them. I keep a stack of plain cardboard boxes in different dimensions. I have large swaths of cheap fleece for draping and "pooling" into snuggle spots.
They love it when I clean their space because it means they get a whole new obstacle course to explore. I do give them floor time, but it's not as necessary anymore because they get plenty of stimulation from their habitat. With them, the more stuff in there, the better, although it would drive me nuts to have so much to climb over every time I wanted to go to the other side of my house.
I can tell they are happy with it because they popcorn like crazy as soon as I step outside the pen and leave it to them. I think the more thoughtful you are with providing your little furries with some new adventures, the easier it will be to feel better about not having as much time for floor play.
