Question smaller cage for Bob's daytime?

I wasn't sure where to post this?

I had an idea.

If i buy a travel cage, put a toy in it transfer Bob to it and take him round the house with me whilst I do my chores.

I thought it might help him overcome his cage aggresion and help us bond better?

He could go back in his cage when I do the school run and when the kids are home as I can't risk them getting bitten. (stipulation from hubby).

then come out in the evening as usual.

what'd'ya think?

I'm off on my hols tomorrow but will read posts when I can.

It may help but the constant changing may annoy him? I'm really not sure. I think if you left his cage open while you were there then he could come out all the time. I mean, if you're working in that room

I hope you have a lovely holiday!

hmm..thats kind of like what i did before Pumble came out and was still in his small cage. he was usuall in the living room, but i would take him into my room when i went in there and i took him into the computer room when i went on the computer (we always watched ghost hunters together! every time i wanted quiet to hear the faint noises, he would quietly chirp! )
i would try it and see what happens. make sure the cage doesn't feel small like a jail to him. and use the secret weapon that i could.t use on pumble: millet! good luck!
