Stuck in the cage :(
Poor Flash is confined to his cage for the next few days.
I left him at the vet over the weekend when I went out of town, and I figured that was a good time to have him neutered while he was there. I picked him up Monday morning, and they showed me his surgical scar and told me to check it every day to make sure everything's healing ok. They also said not to let him run or hop in a large area until the end of the week, so I can't let him out of his cage for play time.
He's just a young guy with lots of energy, so I usually let him out to play for half an hour in the morning while I get ready for work and a couple of hours in the evening. He usually runs around the living room, hops on the couch, lets me chase him around, etc. The poor little guy is going to go stir crazy stuck in that cage all week.
I did put extra toys in the cage that aren't normally in there, to give him something to do. He's got a phone book in there now, since it's his favorite toy, though it takes up a lot of space in his cage.
The poor little guy keeps trying to chew through the metal bars on his cage door to get out whenever I'm around, to let me know that he wants to come out. He's not mad at me for not letting him out, though. When I reached in to pet him, he was all cuddly and was clearly enjoying the attention.
