A while back I got R1 and I had her for a couple months before I got R2.
When I got R2 she was malnourished had/has signs/scars of/from abuse and was in a cage full of other rats.
When I brought her home, I quarantined her just Incase she was sick, however I couldn’t keep her away from R1. R2 managed to escape every time, so despite my efforts I decided to introduce them to each other. They bonded and have been buddies ever since.
R2 has an mysterious injury to her tail so until Monday when I can take her to the vet, I have her quarantined for her safety but she was freaking out and now she’s been grooming for 15-20 minuets now and is still going.
Does she have separation anxiety, and should I let them remain together?
