Hello~
My mum gets kind of dejected after Cody begins scratching/itching his head almost evertime we scritch his head. Does this mean we are doing something that makes him uncomfortable? He also somtimes hisses and tries to bite (he does not do any damage) while we scritch although he seems to enjoy it and even wanting it in the first place; why does he do this?

Thank you!! :lutino:

The scratching is normal. You've probably made it feel so good that he wants it to keep going. It doesn't mean you're doing anything wrong.

As for the biting, he's telling you he doesn't like you scritching that particular spot and wants you to change positions. This is also normal and not something you can stop. Tiels only have one way of saying "no" and that by nipping at us. It's not mean, it's just a way to tell you what he doesn't want you to do.
