Chip's New Home

I get asked all of the time for an update on Chip. Chip is doing well and is nearly full grown. He is showing a little aggression as he is getting older and I am told that is normal.

Chip outgrew his cage. On Monday, Mr. Bruises and I went in search of a new one for him. I originally planned on getting him a large ferret cage, but the wires were set too far apart. We opted on a very large bird cage.

I filled the cage with branches for him to crawl on and chew. Riley and Travis were all excited when I came into the house with them. They know the "No sticks in the house" rule and were excited to think that the rules had changed!

I also got a hammock. I had no idea how much Chip was going to love that hammock. He is sound asleep in it as I type.
Travis is totally amazed that he can look Chip in the eye. He just loves to sit and watch him. Riley doesn't seem to care one way or the other. Kallie, of course, is being her normal, bitchy-cat self!

All in all, I would say that Chip gives his home two paws up!

That's one comfy home for Chip!

Love that picture of Travis checking out Chip's home.

Samantha is a stick chewer, June not so much. Samantha even takes the logs for the wood stove and chews them(and of course make a mess on the carpet with the wood chips)!
