Ollie has a comfy bed in his cage where he sleeps each night. He does enjoy running and leaping around the room, but when I notice he gets a bit tired he's moved to his bed. Mrs. Pratt has a small stuffed bunny I think I got her for an Easter present one year. I thought I'd put the little bunny in along with Ollie so he would have a friend to flop next to. It works with Twizzle with a large stuffed rabbit, and I think helped him with Greyton's absence.
So I put the bunny in with Ollie last night, and went downstairs for a bit. Mrs. Pratt and I started hearing a noise.
Taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap...It sounded like the woodpecker who usually visits our backyard trees. The noise wouldn't stop. It seemed to be coming from Ollie's room.
We checked on Ollie, and sure enough he was making "friends" with the stuffed animal. My bunny the "jackhammer". Baxter looked on from the other room, and I told her that's why she is being kept apart from him. I took the stuffed rabbit out of the cage or else we wouldn't be able to get any sleep last night.
Ollie will be getting fixed soon, and that should calm him down a little.
