New Mother Pulling Fur
The new mum, Phoebe, who has just had four pups, is pulling fur from her paws.
I'm worried that because the woman I got her from has now bred her (3 times in a year, that we know of) that she's become stressed. Of course I won't breed her at all, I never planned to, and learning that she's now been bred 3 times has put me off even more.
She isn't being aggressive, and she's still feeding her pups, but she seems subdued, quiet, almost as if she's sleepy.
I give her lots of attention, and treat her when she's good, she loves being out of the cage and my partner and I have even made a play pen for them, which they love.
Is this normal? Should I be treating her feet at all?
It doesn't look red, nor is it bleeding, but the fur is gone.
