The first intro didn't go nice at all.They sniffed and about 10 seconds into it,Kahlua totally turned on Dox.


I will try again in a day or so.

Eeek! Sorry to hear the first time didn't go so well.
Maybe Kahlua is still getting over losing his other cage mate (Sugar bear, I think?).
I hope the next intro goes better, good luck hun!

Maybe.But Kahlua didn't grieve AT ALL.
He seems quite content with the loss of Sugar Bear.

I will try again...but if it doesn't work,oh well.

Do you have anyway of putting their cages close together for a few days so that they can get used to each other that way? It is always so scary introducing new pets to each other. Best wishes on your next try. :yes:

I don't have any vanilla esscense right now.

Their cages have been next to eachother ever since quarantine was over...but it isn't working.Tried again and Kahlua attacked Dox instantly.


I am not giving up yet though.
I had a really stubborn rat that took weeks to accept another one,so I still think their is a chance.

I highly doubt it is gonna work now.


I have kept trying,but Kahlua always attacks Dox and the last time,he left a mark and Dox bled a little.So I am not going to bother anymore.Also I had Kahlua out and he went over to Saffron's cage (that is my female) and was attacking her through the bars.


I don't think Kahlua would be happy with another rat at this time.He seems quite content alone and when I take him out and everything,so I am gonna leave it that way...at least for now.


But because Dox is young and alone,I am gonna be looking for a male friend for him.I am already in the process of searching for a female friend for Saffron too.


Just thought I would update you.

Good luck on finding new buddies for you newins :)

Thank you.
Yeah,in some cases it is better.
I wouldn't make a rat live alone if they accepted other rats,but Kahlua don't seem to want another rat...so...*shrugs*.

aww bummer the intro didn't work. maybe kahlua just wants to be a bachelor lol. do you think maybe he just is attacking dox because he smells your female and is feeling competitive?
