Hi! I just got my baby boy (two months old today) yesterday, and I'm really nervous about scaring him in his first few days here. He is definitely far less confident than he was at the breeder's, but I know that that's normal at first. Yesterday I took him out in the evening and he sniffed around a little and I fed him and I put him in the pocket of my hoody. I want to do the same today to start making it a routine but every time i try gently to pick him up he starts and huffs and rolls into a ball. Is it really bad if he jumps a little? Also, the temperature in here is around 68º -- is that warm enough? I really just want to get him acclimated and happy and I don't know what to do. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thank you! I think I will do that (buy a heat emitter). He just tried to sleep under his wheel and I think that's bad -- I moved him back to his hidey hut and hopefully he'll sleep there... I had him eating turkey out of my hand earlier, though, so that's good!
