First up is Harry. He has gotten very fat in the last few weeks. I have noticed fat rolls above his back feet.
I know rexes are very prone to obesity so I try not to feed Harry too much. He gets 1/3 cup of OxBow timothy pellets a day, unlimited orchard grass and timothy hay and veggies. He gets the occasional treats too but they aren't the fatty kind. He goes out into his run everyday, weather permitting, and he does run around quite a bit. What can I do to make Harry more "slender"?
One really interesting thing I have noticed about Charlie and Harry is that they have become inseperable. Whenever I take Harry out of his cage first and leave Charlie alone, she starts digging and biting at the bars between her and Harry's cages. She also does this when Harry is in his cage to call him.
In the run, Harry has dug a hole under the fence separating him from Charlie. He has done this on numerous occasions and different places, but all connecting to Charlie's area, so maybe it's not a coincidence?
I am debating trying to put the two together again, in a new neutral area of course. I will also put them in each others' cages this week as people here have suggested.
One extremely interesting thing that I have found out is that Harry had a girlfriend before he came to the pound. I managed to track down one of his previous owners and she told me all about Harry's antics and friends. She said that Harry was the submissive one in that relationship. Charlie was the dominant one in her relationship with Caesar and now, Harry is trying to be dominant and Charlie is trying to be submissive. Maybe they just don't know what to do and that is why they are fighting?
Any tips and answers to my questions are welcome, and sorry for babbling on so much!
