I had kermit out today, he didn't want to come out, and was grumpy, but i made him
and when i was watching tv i saw him go under the couch and he hid and pooped on the floor, i could hear him so i yelled and had to move the couch so i can clean it and he ran because he was scared and i was mad.
I had him picked up and he jumped and ran so i kind of chased him (i don't know if 2 feet counts) and grabbed him and made him go back to his cage.
After i cleaned up the HUGE mess he made, i mean really he isn't that big!! i felt really really really bad, and so i went to talk to him and i held him, he was a lot nicer and let me pick him up and didn't fight me taking him out, but i didn't keep him out just long enough to hug him and kiss him and tell him i wasn't mad anymore. but still.. i feel bad.
I have read that if you take them out often then stop for a few days they can get upset and poo when they are out and i guess that is what he did, he was bored in his cage the last few days because i have been so busy i haven't had much time for him (even though most of my time spent was on fixing his new cage)
I had been letting him out for a long time every day, then had to stop this week, and i'm sure next week it will be back to normal again.
I shouldn't have yelled, even though he meant it, its because of me.
i'm a bad ig mom....
