Yay! Maxie lost weight!!! He’s down to 164

For anyone who doesn’t know, during the month that Chiku was sick, Max gained a LOT of weight because I wasn’t able to pay him much attention, he wasn’t coming out of the cage, he wasn’t really using his wheel, and he was getting too many treats!
While I didn’t put him on a diet, I cut back on the treats, have been paying him a lot of attention, he comes out to play every night, and I put Squeaky’s old wheel into Max’s cage- so he went from an 8 inch wheel to a 10 inch wheel (which accomodated his rapid growth/weight spurt). His loss of some of that unhealthily gained weight makes me feel a lot better that things are returning to normal!
