    In BrE, that hamster is "turning around", "turning round" or "turning to look at something".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    cecilia, please start giving your threads more useful titles. A good title for this thread would have been My boyfriend hears a noise and turns, as this is what your question is about.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    If you're talking about your boyfriend, then she does not work.
