Unhappy Praline wants to be a spinster.

I was hoping to pair up Praline and Aston while Audi nursed and weaned the babies, but I'm not having much luck.

They're fine in the carrier during the first 'smush' period, but once I put them into Aston's cage, it's full on chasing, fur slipping and nastiness. I've always used vanilla for my intros but bought some Vicks since this one wasn't going well - didn't make one bit of difference.

I've swapped bedding so each could get used to the other's scent, put Aston in his cage in front of Praline's cage for several days, dusted them together, ... everything I can think of.

I'm about ready to give up on them!

Awww, that's too bad.

Try telling Aston that he needs to sweet talk Praline... that usually works with girls!

Aww, I'm sorry. Do you have a little cage you could put Praline or Aston in to sit inside the other's cage? Or do you think toes would get bitten...

I hope they get along! They would make an awesome couple.

I don't have a cage small enough to do that. I wish I had a show cage, it'd be perfect.

What kills me is that they used to behave so well together!! They were big time into cuddling. I really didn't expect to have this much of a problem with them. Attached is a pic of them in March, the perfect couple.

Silly as it sounds, I have to wonder if Praline's mad at him for being with Audi.

You should encourage Aston to send Praline flowers. That usually works for me! I hope they are able to rekindle that old flame soon. Good luck!

Awww, I have a cage we use for introductions but am to far away to get it to you.

I had a lady tell me a few months ago that she had used Old Spice after shave to get a pair together, not sure if I am willing to try that one though.
