This is Merry telling me he wants to come out and play
Theoretically it would allow me to get better photos of him because he’s not always in a dark corner, but that does require him to stay still, which doesn’t happen a lot. He likes running around very fast and trying to climb things, even if they’re unclimbable (like the wall).
He has not yet learnt that if he gets up earlier he can run around for longer. I’ve tried convincing him, but he really likes his bed in the evenings. He does a very good puppy dog expression when I put him back in his cage so I can go to bed.
