hi all, my name's josh and i'm a 21 year old new rat owner as i just got 2 female rats yesterday. they have been adjusting alright so far, one is older than the other and the two have been fighting/wrestling a bit resulting in squeaks that startle me a bit, though they don't seem to be hurting one another from what i can tell. i'm hoping they will settle down more in the next week or so. anyway, hope to be a regular poster on this forum as i've already fallen in love with these two cute little ragamuffins. any advice/tips for a new rat owner anyone wants to offer would be fantastic. cheers.

Welcome to the forums. Tussles are normal as they work out who's the 'top dog' in the cage. Were the kept together prior to you getting them?

Welcome. My boyfriends get in little arguments sometimes, but like Forensic said they pretty much just have to establish a pecking order. Pretty normal =)
