Odd ...

I'm attempting to intro Audi and Praline and it isn't going well. Tonight while out playing Audi decided to go after Praline. I snatched her off in time to avoid injury but Praline slipped some fur. Audi promptly picked up the fur and ate it!! Ideas?

I gave her a piece of papaya to avoid a GI issue but I'm stumped as to why she'd do that!!

That is wierd! Does Geri chew her own fur? Maybe it was just a dominance/anger thing? Kinda like "See, this is what I'll do if I catch ya!" Maybe Praline just tastes good

I have noticed a few of my chins do the same thing when they are being introduced. I just give them petromalt or papaya to avoid a blockage.
