    What does this noise mean?

    Sometimes when I go upto my IRN in the cage he makes a little cry, it sounds like a baby kitten and his eyes pin. I'm worried it's trying to be viscous to me. He then climbs up to my face height in the cage as if he wants to come to me. Again not sure wether it's to bite me or to be near me?
