Theyre doing pretty good! Theyre getting a different sandbox this week because the old one is falling apart (it was already kinda bad when I got it..)
I also found an online pet food seller that does great mixes for my hamster and mice - and they also sell apple sticks, which my boys have been going crazy for! The ones from the local store are much smaller and more expensive and apparently taste kinda meh - but these ones, they absolutely yank them out of my hand xP I also finally managed to get my hands on some Oxbow Essentials and they absolutely love it!

Neither of them let me hold them though, sadly. But! Viktor is slowly letting me touch him which is a huge win - usually I cannot even brush against his fur before he backs off but now I can very super gently touch his chin and cheeks when giving him some dried clover.

So things are going kinda slow, but I cant complain! Theyre healthy and active, albeit still picky with their hay xD Seems like they liked the one I had before this one some more, so I might try mixing them so they don't skip out on too much hay.

Fantastic. That only shows how active they are. It's great that you found better food options and other stuff for them, I can pretty much feel how they like them.

Letting you touch him is pretty cool. Slowly, with a little bit of patience, they'll give up.:) Yes, their health is the most important.

Thanks for the updates and see you around?

Very active indeed, theyre little rascals!
I installed a new large platform in their cage today and so far they seem to enjoy having another small level in there (although Jayce hasn't even noticed it yet hahaha)

Thank you! I lurk around here from time to time, just dont have much to post so xP see you around!

Just stopping by to drop a little video of Viktor :D I am back in my home country for a week so my roommate is taking care of my boys and its nice to see that theyre not scared of him despite not being used to him

My roommate hurt his hand and apparently they're super curious about the tape on his hand now x3 I love their cute snoot and whiskers sniffing around all curious

Thanks for the video, Viktor is so adorable. They seem to be bonding pretty well. Where is Jayce?

Theyre slowly getting more trusting for sure! I got them a couple of new hammocks and a little fleece-covered cold pack they really like to sit on now that the temps are slowly rising :D
Not sure where Jayce is during that video but my guess is he's probably sandbathing, its always the first thing he does every time he gets out of the cage xP

Included a little cute pic of them cuddling ❤️
(note: viktor looks weirdly bumpy in the picture, he usually doesnt, im assuming his fur mustve been sticking out weirdly)

Thanks.
That's fantastic. Look how cute they are. Victor was just acting for the photos.:D That's a lot of new amenities to enjoy. Can you hold them freely now?

Sadly I still cant hold them :S
I don't really know what to do to get them to trust me a bit more
They both come up to my hands and like to sniff about lots, Viktor I still can essentially not touch at all, Jayce I can give a little scritches before he backs off

Maybe they still need more time, more hammocks, more cold packs, more sand baths, more food, what else?☺

They already drain my wallet pretty good xP
I am gonna have to try and rework the cage setup at some point, im running into some issues with the hammocks being just a tad too short for how the setup is now
But yea time and snacks is probably just the way x3

They are priceless. Are they getting bigger? Right, you'll be surprised one day.

I don't think they're getting bigger, i try to not give them too many snacks as to not fatten them up

I wish i could get them to bond more but whenever i let them out of the cage and sit down so they can explore me and come to trust me they just.. pay no interest at all 😅 they have no interest in food while outside the cage either

You provided for them everything, right? So you'll be rewarded.😄 You'll be surprised one day.
