My two girls make squeaking noises when playing that seem a little harsh. Are they hurting each other or just play fighting. No blood or anything but one will squeak like it hurts.

It's most likely just play fighting. My rats can squeak bloody murder when playing sometimes but it's all in good fun....err I guess? LOL! The rattie ways are strange.

Look for signs of aggression i.e. puffed out fur, hissing, kicking or snarling. If you see any of these signs it may be more than play fighting but other than that don't worry.

A nice rule of thumb is 'no blood, no foul', If they're not drawing blood it's all in the name of fun ;).
