Default Re: tattered ears

My Cholla falls asleep on me all the time. I will pet, or stroke him gently. I don't know if Orbie is the same way. What I would do, personally, is to put the vasaline on my thumb & index finger & kind of sneakily slip it onto his ears while I stroked him.
If he doesn't go for it, well, I don't know... maybe put it on all 5 fingers & hope 2 of them get him!

well orbie is more of the active adventurer type he doesnt usually cuddle sometimes he will come lay down near me but he is easily startled if i try to pet him. i got him from a petstore that didnt even know his gender! so i can imagine how little they handled him... they even sold me the wrong food. not the type that he was eating there. i think im going to try it after a bath he is surprisingly calm when he gets a bath and after, thats the only time that i can really pet him. Unless he comes up to me and rubs against me.

Using q-tips can work, especially if he puts his quills up/ balls up.
