Screamer

Boss started screaming tonight because I would'nt let him out of his cage. Maybe it was because Gucci wouldnt play with him or maybe something else is wrong? His "screaming" sounded like a REALLY LOUD squeak/chirp.

I would check him to make sure he is okay, but I know Pistol does this loud annoying chirp/squeal combination when he thinks he is being ignored by me or when he wants attention.

Yeah, I let him in my sweater and he's been quiet ever since. But this loud shrieky chirp/squeak scared the bejeezus outta me.

I imagine so. Pistol was my first screamer, and Martie, just makes a little squeaking sound that sounds like a baby cricket when she wants something. The first time Pistol did his loud scream, I jumped up and almost broke my neck to check on him. Believe me when they get that loud, you cannot ignore them.

I think that's the idea... they call & we come running! In the wild I believe that would be the "I want my mommy" call. Bojangles did it one time & it scared me half to death. Of course it sent me running immediately to him so it definitely gets results.

I went to see what the noise was last night after I'd fed Frosty. I had forgotten to put the clean wheel back in -- from Thursday. I guess hewasn't going to go another night without his wheel. :multi:

This forum is awesome ... Lulu just started yammering - I kinda freaked out.

Turned out she was trying to get attention - was making their food and didn't give her her usual treat.

One tiny pecan later and she's happily back scampering around the house. :)

They can get VERY impatient while they are training you if you don't get things as fast as they think you should. LOL :twisted:

shylo is a screamer too. she's woken me up in the middle of the night to be pet. sometimes when she first wakes up, she'll start chirping, and my siblings will come to me saying, alyssa, i think shylo is yelling for you! i'm well-trained... i go running to see what's the matter, and as soon as i open the door to the room, she's silent, sitting on her branch, glaring at me.

- HOF to shylo... my pretty squirrel girl -
