    Strange Behaviors

    Raqui has been chasing Rosie around ever since I got them. Raqui rumbles and chases Rosie attempting to mount her. I'm pretty sure this is a dominance thing because they are both girls. It has been lasting over 4 months now. Does it take this long for dominance to be determined.also today something new happened. Raqui who was chasing Rosie squirted pee at Rosie. Rosie stopped running and raqui got up on her hind and squirted pee from about 6 inches away. The strange thing is Rosie was the one being chased so it's not like raqui was telling her to back off. is this normal?

    Its normal the peeling thing is called spraying. I think its like a leave me alone thing.

    Dominance behavior depends on the individual. Some will take longer than others.

    Re: Strange Behaviors

    So, if the peeing thing is a leave me alone, and that one is the one doing the chasing.... Is it possible that she just doesn't like her room mate? Maybe?

    Honestly I don't know I'm only speculating. I've had boys no girls and have never experienced this.
