TheKinetic: over-reaction, much?

Olympia: it's not the dominance I'm worried about changing, more his naughtiness. I want him to still try and wrassle my hands and steal food from his cagemates (I steal it right back off him). I just don't want him to bully them or puff up and hiss at little Darcy.

Oh well, vet appointment in half an hour. I'll let you all know how it goes! Thanks for your support. :)

Thanks. :) We didn't get them done today because they didn't have enough implants, but we've ordered them in so it should be done in a fortnight.

TheKinetic: why is neutering cruel? It lowers agression, prevents accidental litters and they don't even realise it's been done. Besides, if you read my first post, you'd know I wasn't cutting anything off, I'm having it done chemically. That means implants, not snipping.

It depends whether the dominance is testosterone-fuelled or behaviour related, as I believe someone mentioned. :) However, it will at least have the advantage of reducing the ridiculous amount of buck's grease that Squibbles produces.

Does it stink? :o
I read that male rats leave little pee trails everywhere too, and that neutering sometimes stops it.
