So, I weighed it late on Saturday night and it came in at 400g. Just weighed again and it is 402g, so not really gaining.

Would my leaving it out in the colder temperatures (I have a cow passage under the house, which is not ideal, especially during the day but kind of outside and sheltered) have an effect on its appetite?

Night lows are about 3C and I am conscious that it is in a fairly small box and does not have the ability to move to somewhere warmer or even exercise much.

Thanks again.
