I didn't want all that stress for Jekyll-belly, so I put him and Hyde in the bottom half of my cage (it's a Ferplast Furet Tower) and the three younger boys in the top. It seems to be a good arrangment for now, and they all get cuddled and free-ranged together at night. :)
Aw, I do hope your guy gets better soon! It's sweet they are all getting lots of love, though.

Sansa is sitting on my shoulder as I type this, rooting through my hair. I'd have got rats AGES ago if I'd known they were such darlings!
