Praline's new digs

Well, Pecan's too. I finally reintroduced them in the big cage last night (surprisingly easily!) and Chris just helped me install their flying saucer wheel. My hope is that Praline will figure out how to use it and get herself down to a more healthy weight. She already gets no treats, more hay, etc. but was staying right around 900 grams. She got up to 1100+ when she was preggo with Nougat.

I'd like to see her around 750, it would be much more healthy for her.

I'll keep you guys updated! That's Pecan on the wheel - he freaked out when it moved and sent him spinning.

That's a really nice cage! I hope Praline figures out the wheel and how it works. But I heard chunky is in this season.

Chunky chinnies are way cute but I understand your concern. They look very happy!

Thanks!

Phawn, check out http://www.qualitycage.com/chinaccess.html - They also make a Chin Spin that is highly recommended and would probably be quieter than a Flying Saucer if you have a wire cage.

Pecan figured the wheel out! Here's hoping Praline takes a cue from him.

Praline still hasn't taken lessons from Pecan that I've seen. She'll be watched closely tonight though.
