so today we tried to bring our 2 month old together with the 2 year old. the cage was cleaned up and down. introductions occurred on a rug for a week. they lived above/below each other for a week. the only thing left in the cage was the babies box since the hole was only big enough for her. there were some normal dominant behaviors such as rolling her over and sniffing her. then this occurred. the larger one was trying to get into the whole with her tail swishing and she was pulling out paper. it was very frantic

I wouldn't have anything at all in the cage, not even a box. But your older girl might need longer introduction times before being added to the cage together.

Thanks everyone. We will be trying different methods for introductions. The links were great I wish I could post videos on here but I keep getting errors on my phone saying file to large.

You can post videos to another site, such as YouTube and then post the link on here
