My boy is a weirdo: he has even changed the colour of his eyes, from ruby to dark grey, which, it seems, is contrary to what evolution intended and better mannered chins do not do. But it is his attitude to hay what takes the biscuit: he just ignores it and the better the hay the less he seems to like it. At the beginning I gave him Pets at Home timothy hay and he just said pfff, eat THAT, moi?. So I got Animal Dreams 5 a Day and it was the same pfff, but longer: he planted himself in front of the rack, looked at it as if it were a basket of green mambas put there to honey Mighty Mongoose's hunting skills, pulled the stuff out and after making a holy mess, hopped away, looking for more interesting things to do. I tried putting Natural meadow hay cookies in a dish but he discovered that he could flip it with his teeth with a mighty bang, spreading the contents like confetti: maybe in his mind hay is entertainment and rock-and-roll instead of food. Anchoring the dish only avoided the mighty bang and the confetti effect: as for the the hay, it just lied there, un-loved and un-eaten. The only one he seems to have any interest in (and a very marginal one at that) in is the rough bedding hay I put in a hide at the bottom of his cage in case he feels cold but he must be the reincarnation of a Spartan warrior, because anything soft or cosy is eschewed in favour of tough and manly. Wonder of he thinks that hay is ninny. I feel like a bad parent, unable to make children eat their greens. Any suggestions?
