Dear Molly and Junior

Post by Thumper2001 on Thu Jun 19, 2014 8:17 pm

Can you please explain to me why, come tea time, you will not eat the hay that has been in your hay wheel since the morning and yet it's perfectly acceptable to eat a bit that you've found in the floor, that I dropped the very same morning???

Is it more appetising having sat on your bedroom carpet all day? Has it been calling out to you from outside the pen all day to be eaten?

Please explain yourselves for I cannot fathom it out...

I often ponder the very same issues with my pair.

Dougal always picks stray bits up like this off the carpet and he even tries to pull hay that has gotten stuck under something , just to have that special piece. It boggles the mind  Laughing Laughing .

Yeah, sounds familiar. The grass/hay is greener on the other side. Boggled! Laughing albino

They do similar! There's nothing more interesting than yesterday's dirty litter tray that is waiting to be cleaned!!

Makes me wonder why I bother cleaning them at all Wink Laughing

Saying that, Junior does this some days...

I go in with a clean tray every morning.
I take the dirty one out of the pen and put it on the floor.
While I'm putting the fresh one in and fresh hay in the hay wheel, he will scoot over to the dirty tray and have one last pee in it before I take it away.

So he obviously likes to try and keep them clean.

Such odd little creatures Laughing

Now we are talking. My norty pair waits until the tray is emptied and the cleaning solution applied, than they nip in for a pee before I get a chance to refill the fresh litter Laughing scratch

It's because the hay is not interesting in the tray so you have to clean them. You could leave it there for weeks and it would not be eaten but the moment it is in the bag it is appetising. I have tried aggitating the hay and putting back in the rack but it just does not become edible until it is in the bin bag.

Ha ha this is so true. When I clean Holly's box out in the morning if she is able to get to it she will head for the bag with the old hay in it. It seems to be the choice of all of them; little muckworms LOL!!
