  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I recently purchased three little male mice from a pet store. No problems amongst any of them, they seem quite happy. Two are very sweet and loving but one is super aggressive. It started with him constantly jumping at my hand and nipping. He doesn't seem to be at all afraid. When out playing he...
  2. Degu Discussion
    Hi there My degu has recently started making really aggressive sounding noises and I've finally recorded him doing it. Since I got him he's hated to be touched and will screech at me (and everyone/everything else, he can't even live with other degus because he hates when they touch him) as a...
  3. Prairie Dog Discussion
    I bought my PD a month ago, she is about 4 months old. two weeks ago she became tame and there was no more biting/aggressive behavior. A few days she started this thing where if you stick your hand in her cage, she comes at you and starts nipping at your fingers. It isn't hard, but I'm scared...

    Hello, I rescued a 3 day old kitten out of our barn after the mother got hit by a car and she was barely alive. I nursed her back to health and around 2 months ago she went from sweet playful kitten to psychotic 6 month old cat. She wont let us touch her, pick her up walk by her, put her food...
  5. Degu Discussion
    I recently got two new degus from the pet store and they were fairly young. So for a while they were skittish since i had taken them away from their mother and they were settling into a new home. Eventually they became more and more comfortable and would no longer scurry away and hide whenever i...
  6. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Neutering has come to mind, but I think this issue falls deeper than hormones.. Hormonally aggressive males will at least let you touch them usually, right? ;/ My Bruce I bought from a pet shop (bad, I know) already fully grown. I think this basically was a recipe for disaster.. A rat that's...

  10. Dogs
    There is a chance that Blitzen will either be re-home or going to a dog pound in Winnipeg. Our incidents with other dogs is getting way out of hand. And he's starting to get a little aggressive towards me and my family. Saturday morning he got into another fight with a dog...another husky. And...
  11. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I am getting a female rat from a rescue in Ohio and they told me she is very rat aggressive, and I was wondering if it would be ok to house her alone if I gave her extra attention? The female rat apparently killed her cage mate at the shelter.
  12. Chinchilla Discussion
    My chinchillas are driving me up the wall. I have two... a sweet little girl named Mercury and a horrible little goblin named Ayla. Mercury, I fear, is beginning to pick up bad habbits from this new arrival and is beginning to act up. About a couple of months ago I adopted Ayla from a petstore...
  13. Prairie Dog Discussion
    Hello! I am completely new here and unfortunately entering on a negative point. But I need HELP asap! I got my little PD in mid June when he was about 8 weeks old. He adapted quite quickly and never really displayed any sign of aggression other than some playful biting. He even stopped that...

  15. Rabbit Discussion
    Something has really gotten into Smudge lately... Hes been getting more agressive, and super crabby for some reason. :( Hes grunting/growling at me pretty much when ever I pet him or try to brush him, and hes started lunging at my hands. Sometimes he does it when I pet him, but it seems like hes...

    Hi all, this is my first post on this forum, so forgive me if this is the wrong place to be asking about this. My girlfriend and I have two chinchillas, Onyx and Shale. They're brothers and have been living in the same cage for over four years. Shale is the younger and much more timid and...
