I've seen my girls chase each other around,pin each other down and start grooming hard enough to make the recipatant squeak. Why? Is it a dominance thing?

If anyone could help explain this for me I'd be most greatfull. :)

It's not that I'm a light sleeper I'm just the opposite! Once I'm asleep you can't wake me up for nothin!!! :wink: 8) But I have trouble getting to sleep. I fall asleep without noticing but I still have trouble getting to sleep....

And about how rough they are.... They bounce around squeakin and wrestling so much I can hear them in OUTSIDE through the CLOSED window! 8O
