He is going through shedding, was extremely stressed and pacing his cage, rubbing against everything. So, I took him out, and he was very nervous at first. I started to gently scratch him, and after about 1/2 hour, he started closing his eyes and rubbing against my fingers, quite hard, like a cat! I continued to scratch him for a good hour before putting him back in his cage, and he actually did NOT want to go back in. It was a super sweet moment!!! He was so cute, rubbing against me, and now he is hanging out at the front of the cage! Awesome bonding moment!
