so different at day and night... some recommendations?

Postby voguemamselle619 » Wed May 24, 2006 1:43 am

so during the day batman looves my shirt and won't leave it. he'll even eat seeds in my shirt after he has his formula! but at night, he seems to hide from me :? sometimes when i call him he'll peek out for a second, but he doesn't come running to me to explore... i want to be his toy too! if i take a pecan bit and tell him to come here and hold out my palm, he'll come running, but then hop right off to eat in a corner. i want to interact more with him. he doesn't seem like he's afraid really, since once he's done running around he jumps in my shirt to sleep; he'd just rather hide. any sugestions on how i can get him to play with me?

He playing hide and seek. Just wander around like you don't see him, wondering out loud "where is that little squirrel". He'll probably show himself, act surprised. They also like to play tag. Have him chase your fingers and suddenly turn around and have the fingers chase him. I play this on the blinds with Chuck.

Hold a tiny piece of pecan in your lips, and tap your chin or lip to get his attention. When he spots it, he will run up and take it. Then, put another tiny piece in your lips again. That's how we got Whiz to "kiss".

well tonight i tried some other things, and he seemed to like the ideas! i tried playing 'tag' with him with my fingers and he went crazy for that. then i took some mardi gras beads and dangled them around him, and he would not stop attacking them!
and peep, i ate tostitos and lemonade while i was playing with him... i got PLENTY of kisses haha. and um... does anyone else's flyer try to pick their nose?! batman's going overboard with the grooming.

LOL! I get groomed plenty too! And with mine, he tends to spends his days in my shirt, too, but at night he doesn't want to be in there. He wants to run around everywhere!
