Every time they come in contact with my phone, they pee on it. Just a little bit so it doesn't really hurt it but its really getting annoying ._. Is there any reason they're doing this and any way I can get them to stop? They also mark me constantly but I figure its because they like me (at least that's what I hope). They're both females by the way.

I would assume they're also just marking it, my boys do this, it's sooo annoying. They do it to everything, my phone, my controller, my hairbrush. I watch them purposefully walk slowly over things to get a good mark!

My girls do this as well! My ipad and phone are always the ones getting peed on. Not to mention myself. It's definitely just a marking thing - I'd keep your belongings out of the way so they don't get peed on :p

It smells like you, so they want to make sure everyone else in the house knows that you are their human.

Lol. My rats do this too! The funny thing is one will mark something and the next one will be right behind them and mark over that same spot. XD

My girls do this p frequently. I think part of the cause is I clean my phone & it's screen regularly, so I assume any scent it has is gone the next time the pack comes into contact with it. This would probably prompt them to mark it again because it no longer has a scent. :p

It probably smells like you, so they are claiming it. Or if you are using it while playing with them, they might be trying to make you put it down.
