Why didn't you use Homer's old cage, you ask? We pulled it down from the attic but the galvanized steel base had not weathered the years in the attic well and was all corroded. Ew. I wanted a plastic-based cage anyway for ease of cleaning. Much easier to sterilize.
Isn't she cute?
I tell you, waking up to "whoot whoot whoot wheee wheeee wheeeeeee" was wonderful! And her kibble smells so good, like sunlight in a barn, and her hay...ah. As Hubby says, "Smells like home!"
Shadow is VERRRY curious and at this point wants to see what that little squirrel-like thing is and maybe how it tastes...we've warned Kidlet that Princess needs to stay in her cage for the first few days until she is comfortable with us. Homer hid for two days straight, if I recall, before he warmed up to us, and he didn't have a dog staring at him.
