I recently purchased an 8 week old prairie dog. I've only had him for a few days. He hides in his tunnel when I'm at his cage, but he lets me pet him and eats hay from my hand, but alas, he won't come out of his tunnel. Just wondering how long it took other PD owners to bond with their PD to the point of the PDs jumping to out to say "HI!".
ALSO, Do they sleep with their eyes open?? He looks asleep but his eyes are open sometimes.
And sometimes when I'm petting him, he will grind his teeth, which I know for rabbits is like purring. I just wasn't sure if PD do it for the same reason. Thanks! Any other new parent advice is appreciated!
