    I think I will keep them together...I've been doing a little
    looking into it and it does seem to not be such a good idea. They
    seem to be doing well they are even getting used to the toys I got
    them so maybe after a bit they will be a little more tolerant of
    me but I don't want to make the stressed because I want to be
    THEIR friend I'll wait maybe they'll want to be MY friend> LOL
    Thanks
