Since we have put Buddy and Lucy together they have started biting. Neither of them bit before. Lucy is a licker she loves to lick which i love but i had them both out today and were holding them and they were both biting me like crazy! I don't know why this is but i don't like it!

Have you checked whether you are using a new product for your hands or happened to have any new smell on them?

Otherwise, the two are so comfy in their new home that they have started to include you into their dominance behaviour. Stay firm, but do not shout. If it is really bad, you can say no firmly and blow gently in their face. It usually passes once you have established the "pecking order".
