Jigglypuff and Panda got new homes yesterday.
I went to BB&B (bed bath and beyond) and got pretty storage bins with *purple* lids.
Unfort. they are slightly below the recommended 360 square inches of space, but Hopefully later I can add CritterTrail additions by making more holes.
They are happy to be out of their tiny Critter Trail homes though, let me tell you.
I am hoping Panda will calm down a bit with her cage-aggressiveness, and I am hoping poor ailing Jigglypuff can find a pee spot far from her nest.
After the initial freak-out session last night, Both Whos were enjoying themselves in their new space.
As per HH forum, I need to cut out a slit so that I can give Jiggles back her original, bigger wheel. I do not have a stand for it, so I will have to create a whole in which I can fit the "knob" thingie into it and twist it so it holds tight.
As for the water bottles, I just made a small hole that could fit the nozzle of the water bottle, and taped it with clear packaging tape I had laying around. Nothing fancy, but it works.
On Panda's you can see I started drilling 10 holes in rows on the roof, but then as I started an inner row, the drill broke the plastic like a crack in glass. So, it dawned on us if we could cut a small square hole that I could fit my arm into, but that no Who could escape from, that would serve as better ventilation (compared to the original 40 small holes on top) and an easy access point if I wanted to do something and not disturb anyone by taking off the entire roof.
I marvel at my self sometimes :p
The only problem I see thus far is, how will they ask for out when they want out. Before, with the CT, they'd come stand up at the cage door looking out or climbing as if to say "geet me out of hhhereeee!"
In any case, bugs and flaws will be worked out as they arise.
Hopefully that and the CT additions will be done by the end of this long, glorious weekend!
Let me know what you think:
Jigglypuff's now home with a wheel a touch too small.
