Three out of the past four days, I’ve been woken up to little paws and squeaks coming from all over my room. Turns out the fluffbutts have figured out they can chew through cloth latches… I mean, really!? The day before yesterday I replaced it with this crocheted strip I had lying around. It worked! Or so I thought. And then this morning…
The thing is, they never do this while I’m gone during the day! They really are like small children. Mommy~ mommy~ play with meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~
Sigh. I’ll have to figure something out.
Mostly I’m glad they’re feeling better after last night’s scare! Usually my room is overheated to the point if I don’t leave the window open it gets…way too hot. I guess they must have fixed that yesterday, because I came home and my room was freezing! When I picked up Xiuxiu, he was cold to the touch and wouldn’t stop shivering. (Mianmian was okay, but just in case I dropped a blanket with a hot water bottle into their cage.) I tried to bundle him in a scarf on my lap, but he also refused to stay put, and I had to bribe him to stay with a carrot.
Being that cold must have made him extra nervous… once he stopped shivering, he went back to being his usual floppy half-comatose self, burrowed into my sweater pocket (with his usual eventual attempts to crawl into my sleeve). It was such a change from the nervous wreck he’d been a few minutes ago I had to keep checking to make sure he hadn’t stopped breathing or something u_u But judging from their activity this morning, yesterday’s cold snap seems to have worn off entirely 🙂 Thank goodness!
Looks like winter’s really hit…and now that it’s December, I have no right to complain about the snow. It’s snowing right now ): How unpleasant.
