Are occasional scuffles normal?

Post by River on Thu 07 Jul 2016, 10:00 pm

It's the first time it's happened since they've been housed together but I heard some squeaking and since there's been chasing - I'd say it's been going on for about 6 or so minutes. There's no blood so I'm not too concerned, but are the occasional scuffles a normal thing? I'm surprised since they've always gotten along before. Graham's being a little bully, though.

EDIT: I meant to post this in behavior - can a mod move it for me, or?

Yes, this is normal. Occasionally Sarah and Sally get into little "arguments". They're usually resolved within a few minutes time.

Sometimes they squeak when they play. And sometimes one will try to hump the other one, and they squeak to let the other mouse know how they feel about it. And sometimes they bicker like siblings would... boo hoo, she pulled my hair... no I didn't... or give me that cheerios, it's mine! All totally normal.

My girls have little scuffles over treats. Female mice are like sisters, and sisters argue sometimes but still love each other at the end of the day Wink haha.

My girls used to have scuffles, but since Little Cow started almost all of them, they don't happen anymore. I remember Mabel and Rosie once had a very noisy argument over a piece of white bread. Otherwise it was just Little Cow giving the Petsmart girls a hard time.

Hi AnonONIagent - I wanted to ask you if Lucy has been introduced to Sarah and Sally and if so, how did that go? Do you have any other pets? Smile

Lucy has not been introduced yet, she's still in quarantine. As for other pets, I have two dogs (Henry, a Miniature Pinscher, and Zoey, a Yorkshire Terrier/Poodle mix), three cats (Josie, Daisy, and Herman), and one Campbell's Russian Dwarf Hamster, named Lola.

Nice! I have one dog, a Puggle named Myda, two gerbils named Pip & Pup, and one mouse named Mickey. Smile
