Screaming at swinging toys

Hey guys!!! Ben and I have been MIA for quite a bit but I need to know what in the world he’s doing this for. He’s kind of always done this but it’s gotten worse lately and I’m just noticing how odd it is. He will purposely fling a toy so that it starts swinging and then he crouches under it and screams as if he’s being attacked. I have tried rearranging the toys/ cage and he still finds a way to do this and he will do it with almost any toy. I don’t know why he insists on making himself a victim

I’m not sure about that behavior, maybe a hormonal behavior? I’m glad to see you and Ben are okay. I’ve missed your wonderful photos of him!

Too funny to see he’s probably just playing like this :roflmao: I work night shift and his screaming is unfortunately keeping me from sleeping during the day so I guess I’m off to try to find ways to sleep through the screaming

I think Burt watched too many of your videos when he was a baby- he has the exact same playing style :laugh:
That's Kailua.... it's ONE of her MULTIPLE personality playstyles. It's no fun unless it bruises your face yah know.

Walter would do exactly that but his purpose was to get the toy to give him head skritches. So I would adjust the toy so it just barely rubbed his head. He would play like that for hours. Just watch the heavy toys. Walter once gave himself a black eye by trying to do that with a heavy toy.

Aww Walter :heart: . That's so sweet about the scritches Nala would do that as well. Oh yes Tobias did that as well he would swing like a wild man from his toys and constantly whack himself in the face.
