Quickly checking out the dig box
Just gave Quilly a footbath and it went really well!!!
Managed to clip the long nails successfully too.
I’m not sure if he liked the water or not, he tried to climb out but he wasn’t making any noises or attempting to ball up and realising he couldnt. His quills were flat and he just let me do what I needed to do.
Got him out and dried him with the towel, still really calm, not huffing or balling up while I was drying him and he was letting my stroke him and being super calm about it, it was really nice!
Got him dried and just sat with him, let him climb around my shoulder, held him, stroked his belly, he was just so calm I can’t believe it!
I feel like we really bonded over a footbath, haha.
Noticing a few differences in how Quilly acts with me!!
He doesn’t stay very huffy for very long anymore, and he’s let me run my hand from his head to his butt over his quills a lot more lately!!!
He doesn’t shy away or hide from my hands as often as he used to either!!!
It’s so nice when getting him out pays off!! Hopefully he’ll be fully at ease with me one day.
I still need to try and clip his nails, i’ve tried abut 5 times and havent gotten anywhere so I may try when I give him a foot bath.
Also, he hardly ever poops/pees anywhere else in his cage other than his litter tray or wheel, which is great for me! (except the wheel is super gross)
Also Quilly likes cucumber
Interesting first impressions
