Arrow Dribble peeing, fun stuff!

Recently my rats (both girls) have started dribble peeing a bit when they come out of their cage for playtime. Its not much and its fine, but I was wondering if they will eventually stop- since it is a marking thing- once they have 'marked' everything. Or if there is a way to get them to stop?

This is actually a normal behavior, even for females (though generally speaking, males do it more). They are scent-marking with small amounts of urine. There is pretty much nothing you can do--that I'm aware of--to stop it, because it's an instinctive behavior. If it bothers you, I'd recommend having a few non-scented baby wipes nearby during playtime so you can wipe whatever they dribble on, including you!
