Yesterday, my octo Felix came out for the first time. He came out again this morning and played with me. I got the feeding stick out and he immediatly grapped it and began a game of tug a war. Then I gave him a small piece of fish which he quickly grapped.

It makes me so happy that Felix is starting to interact with me.

My new question - I know I'm suppose to introduce toys to him to stimulate his enviroment, but how often do I keep each toy in there before I take it out? How often should I gave him a toy? and should I keep rotating the toys I give him?
