  1. Degu Discussion
    Hello I have 2 male degus that I rehomed form another house after being owned for 2 years. They have been rather happy for several weeks but I have noticed they are starting to chase eachother and make very loud squeaks and funny noises. They don't appear to be biting or stamping. Also one of...

    So I have a wonderful baby girl, 9 weeks oop. But she was lonely so I got her a buddy. Well, they do not seem to get along. I was wondering if someone could give me some advice on getting them to like each other.

    I just got two baby male rates today and I have just noticed they have started to fight a little ... One of them is basically pushing the other one around is this normal? I got them from the same litter.
  5. General Rodent Chat
    I recently purchased two chinchillas from a couple who's young daughter had lost interest in them. We discovered that one was male and one female, and the couple hadn't had the male neutered. He was taken for the operation yesterday, and the vet instructed us to keep him in the pet carrier all...
  6. Degu Discussion
    I did have 3 female degus that I adopted from the RSCPA. One escaped last summer and I haven't seen her since. The other two were getting along fine but in November they started fighting. I understand that this is normal behavior for ladies in breeding season. It is now March and it has not...
  7. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I just adopted two 5 month old male spiny mice yesterday. When they arrived at my house, I noticed one had bite marks on his tail and back. His ears are also pretty chewed up, but they're healed so I'm assuming that happened quite a while ago. The person I adopted them from said they have been...
  8. Chinchilla Discussion
    hello! My name is Amira, and it's my first time posting, but I have a pretty serious issue... I have two chinchillas. One is a boy named Chimi, and a girl named Sienna... Sienna went to the vet about a month ago because her toe got stuck in their cage. She had to get her middle toe...
  9. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hey guys. I realize I've been posting on here an awful lot about my rats, but I don't know too many people who seem to have as much experience as the members here. Forgive me? :P My boys Marco and Piper seem to be arguing an awful lot. I got another rat Silferno and planned to add him to the...
  10. 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...
  11. Degu Discussion
    Hey my 2 6 month old brothers have suddenly just started fighting. Dobby keeps humping and biting monty really hard, so he squeaks. I took monty out for a few minutes to check he was ok and as soon as I put him in back into the cage it all kicked off again. At the moment Monty has flattened...
  12. Chinchilla Discussion
    I have 3 female chinchillas who I've kept in one cage andd encountered no problems until recently. Dotty: a mosaic chin who is large and a little aggressive. Very perky and energetic. Taffy: she was a runt and is small for a female chin. She is quite docile and sweet but sassy at times. Lulu...
  13. Chinchilla Discussion
    Hello everyone! We have two chinchillas of named Chewy (age 4.5)and Giz (age 5.5). Giz was our first, and we got Chewy about 6 months ago to give him a friend since he seemed pretty lonely. They hit it off pretty well when we introduced them during a playtime - typical dominance mounting and...
  14. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    So.... Yesterday (Tues) I bought two male Winter White Russian dwarf hamsters. They came from PetSmart and are brothers from the same litter. I'm unsure of their age, though. I have them in a 10 gallon fish tank instead of a cage (I just preferred this idea) so they have a lot of space. They...

  17. Degu Discussion
    Yesterday two of my Degus started fighting badly after free range time. I checked them two hours after they were let out and noticed Parsley was missing. After searching the cage I found her hiding in one of the tubes, she had a large bite wound on her face. The wound wasn't deep luckily but...
  18. Degu Discussion
    Hi Everyone, We had two 2 and a half year old female degus but sadly one of them died suddenly 2 weeks ago. We didn't want to leave our remaining girl on her own so decided to get a pair of 10 week old(ish) babies to keep her company. We had the babies living in a cage next door to our...
  19. Degu Discussion
    Hi, I bought 4 young degus three weeks ago :). Supposedly all brothers :). I had my doubts about one :rolleyes:. Now the three others are fighting, whilst the suspected female sits alone and 'pips' :mad2:. I don't want baby degus. Can degus be safely neutered? And would the males stop...
  20. Ferret Discussion
    We have a problem with helping our ferrets get along and need some help and advice. We have had Lola for about a year and a half, and she is 2 & ½ years old. When we got her, we had a pair of ferrets named Teela and Datsun. Teela was 5 years old (vet’s best estimate) and was extremely and...
