I have 2 lil brothers and have had them for some months now, with Jack being the more boisterous and George being slightly shyer. I noticed that when I get them out of the cage to play, George pees on me CONSTANTLY! I know boys scent owners sometimes and Jack has done it occasionally, but really George does it all the time. It's like he walks over me peeing! :? It doesnt seem like he's scared... Any ideas?!

It's just like a constant trickle... I thought maybe he had problems controlling it but I haven't seen any other signs of this

Perhaps it's just him.

I know from experience with my lot - some boys mark almost insignificantly and some just walk around marking EVERYTHING.

Is he neutered? I think I've heard that neutering boys can help with this behaviour

I have three girls, and one of them, Whimsy, marks me a lot (especially my hands. They are for her skritching and not for her sisters.) I've heard it said that it's part of how rats know where they are. They mark their home, and their family (other rats, you, etc.) so that they can know where they are--that they are safe. I think it's normal, it just might be a bit excessive with your boy.
