Eye Crust

Lily has a little bit of a brownish crust around 1 of her eyes. I read that if it was red, it could be an illness or stress. But this isn't red, it's brownish. I'll keep an eye on it and if it's still there in a week from now, I might bring her to the vet.

It's probably just polyphorin and thats not really a big deal. A lot of rats have some when they first wake up. As long as it isn't excessive and there aren't any sneezes going along with it then it should be okay.
