I introduced Roxy to Lily today, there was some teeth chattering and alittle nipping, But quarentine was over. Is this normal for them to do this? And will they get along?

No, leave them be. They have to settle this.

Unless there is blood drawn, leave them to figure it out on their own. It is something they MUST figure out, if you seperate them, you'll just have to start all over again.

What they are displaying is all normal behavior. They have to decide who is dominant and who is submissive.

oh ok, my gp Lily seems to have backed down but always start the fight. Is it bad if one of them had some strands of hair in their mouth? There is no blood shed though.

It's pretty normal for a few hairs to be ripped out. Just leave them alone unless they draw blood. See www.cavyspirit.com/sociallife.htm for more information on introductions.

Roxy is a PEW American. (Pink Eyed White American). Lily looks like she is a Broken American. Her hair looks a little longish, so maybe she has a little Sheltie in her?

yeah her hair is a little long, just touches the ground. And it's mostly on her back area.

Ok, then she is a Broken Sheltie cross. Probably an American cross.

Boy, Lily could pass for my Pineapple's twin. Therefore, she must be a Broken Sheltie American Cross. YAY, now I know what she is, finally!!!
