Not Running as Much
Hello everyone,

My boyfriend and I have recently moved into a house! YAY :P But, my little Brillo has taken the news a little harder.

He is eating well and drinking fine, but he seems a little more grouchy then he used to and he is not running in his wheel as much. He dosn't mind being held but he is freaking out more about being picked up then he used to.

He dosn't have any real quill loss that I can see, and his ears, nose and eyes look alright to mee but my boyfriend says he licks his nose more often. >_< I really don't think he does.

Brillo has his own room now, but there is a celing fan in there which is a concept he hasn't dealt with in over a year. Could it be a new environment that is causing him to not run as much? The room is toasty around 75 all day.

Little help anyone? :roll:

Re: Not Running as Much
How long have you been in the new place? They are really not fans of changing places, even though its the same cage, the new house is going to smell different, which might be why he isn't running as much. I'd say he's fine if he's eating and drinking his usual and not sneezing, he'll calm down once he gets use to his new surroundings.

Re: Not Running as Much
We moved in to the new place on the first of the month so almost 3 weeks. We are still moving things around a bit, and it smells nothing like our old apartment. He isn't sneezing at all...That is unless we "boop" his nose lol and he isn't all that fond of being "Booped" but their little noses are just SO CUTE!

We are in Tampa, and it got cold for a week and a half (sorry friends up North :( ) We had him by the heater so he would stay warm. But we are a little worried that he got chilled durring the day. (The house stayed in the mid-70s during the day and we turned the heater off while we wern't home. This place was built in the 50s and we have discovered some faulty wiring so we didn't want to leave the heater on while no one was home...)
