ok so first off I'm new to this site but i've read it for awhile.
My fiance got me my mini rex for christmas because he knew i had always wanted one i had asked for one my whole childhood and never got one (even on Easter-bunny day- how horrible is that?)
anyway i decided to name her Nilla because shes brown and white and it reminded me of nilla waffers (the white for the vanilla the brown for the waffer) and as you can tell i love food just as much as my bun.
we've continually upgraded her cages as shes gotten older and bigger and shes always taken to them very well, she never minded me picking her up before because i constantly handled her from the begining.
so here is my issue, she was always very loveable loved to lick (and sometimes get a little too friendly with my arm) until we got her this new home, i had a wire cage on the floor of my room and we upgraded to an indoor hutch, and now i go to pet her and she runs away from me, the hutch has a drop down ramp so she can come and go when she pleases and now shes become little miss independent and wants nothing to do with me
ive gotten her a little use to me again by sitting on the floor and letting her approach me instead of the other way around, she is not spayed yet but i plan on doing it in the near future, do you think the spaying will help or do you think shes holding a grudge because instead of having her 4 open sides she now only has 1. help please!
