    Hey guys, As you know, i already had a rat called Ronnie, who lived on her own untill i could get a bigger cage.
    Well, i finally got her a bigger cage so she could have a sister!
    I got Roxxi on Friday and gave her until today to settle in. I handled her for the first time and she was fab considering she hadnt been held in months by her previous owner.
    Then the introduction period.
    ..
    I filled up the bath a few cm's of warm water and added a couple of toys. First to go in was Roxxi. I let her have a sniff around before adding Ronnie, who has never had contact with another rat. She is 5/6 months old. Roxxi is 7 months. They took a while to notice eachother and i was very nervous because i didnt want any of them to get hurt in a scrap. But boy was i shocked, Ronnie didnt give a ... Roxxi was climbing on top of her sniffing and ronnie just let her :) Next thing i know they were grooming eachother! How sweet!
    Right now they are snuggled up in their new big cage together!
    Now there's a story with a happy ending! I did take some photos but they were on my mobile and i cant find the lead to put them on here, so ill have to do it with the webcam when i have time :)
