Hey there, I’m new here and looking for some suggestions. I’ve owned rats before, but mostly female and I’m learning boys are a different experience. Lol I just picked up two 3 month old boys on Wednesday, I’ll call them Casper, and Jasper for now, although the names are pending lol. The breeder told me these two were a bonded pair and from what Ive seen, for the most part they spend their time cuddled together. But the first night they got in a fight and Casper got a small wound on his testicles, just below the penis and some small scratches on his back. I figured maybe the cage I had was too small, so yesterday I went out and bought a bigger one, and more toys. This morning I found more small scratches on Casper’s back, but I’m not 100% sure it wasnt from the first night and I just missed them yesterday. I only noticed today because he had just cleaned them and they were wet. During the day I don’t see any signs of aggression. Casper is definitely the more submissive one, but they both groom each other and every time I see them sleeping, they’re cuddled together. Could this just have been a one time thing from the stress of a new home? Because there has been blood I know that usually calls for separating them, but I worry that separating them temporarily will make it a harder adjustment on them. And might make it worse when I reintroduce them? Or is separating my best bet? Neutering is on the table, but I’d like to save that as a last resort. If anyone has any suggestions I’d really appreciate it. And for anyone who made it this far, you deserve a cookie. Thanks in advance.
