Hi Daisy has now done 11 weeks yesterday, it is her 3rd hibernation she hasn't lost any weight stayed the same throughout, Im just wondering if and extra week would be OK as I'm going away next week and dont want to wake her up then leave her to my neighbour who generally pops in each day to see to her if I'm away, she will pop in a couple of times to open fridge for air.
Thanks ☺

I left molly an extra week, planned 12 weeks then did another week, total 13 weeks. She's up and about now. Soaked and fed. Seems fine.

Yes, cage!! I thought she'd struggle with lack of space but she seems fine so far. She spent some time outside in her heated hut, having little wander in her garden when it was sunny on Sunday, but she's back inside now. Temps in hut are 21° and 32°. She sat in doorway looking out for most of time. I don't really want to keep moving her in and out as it'll be confusing for her. So hope she stays settled indoors for a bit longer.
