Perch positioning

It is important to carefully consider positioning of perches & swings in the cage.  I have made a mistake with positioning of a perch in Phinny’s cage.  Most mornings, I am presented with the following:

Poopy perch

Phinny usually sleeps overnight on the ttmss swing.  As it is just him sitting on it, it dips down quite a bit on one side & it is that angle that often results in a poopy perch below.  Sometimes the ttmss swing shifts along the bars a fraction & that means the poops miss the perch & land on the cage floor, where they are meant to be.

Some more tweaking is necessary for an optimum poop-free perch position.

Best spot in the manor

There are usually positions in the cage that are favourites. 

Atilla always claimed the spot with the best vantage point for overseeing all that was going on in the room.

The toyboys current favourite spot is behind a chewy toy on the rope perch in the loft area.

During the day one or other of them will often be found sat behind it.  During the night, one or other is usually behind it.  Cagney is behind it about 9 times out of 10, but sometimes he shifts over & allows Bezukhov to sleep there.

It is a chewy toy so does get chewed.  It fell down the other week as they had chewed through the stringy bit holding it up.  I gave it a quick repair & popped it back.  It is slightly shorter than before, but still warrants best position in the Manor.
