they are in an All Living Things three-story wire cage, with Kaytee Soft-Sorbent bedding, and eating Kaytee Forti-diet blocks. my hairless boys sleep on and eat the same stuff and don't smell.
sorry to be confusing; when I said I bathe her every day, I didn't mean actually putting her in the sink and washing her. I mean using those "super pet Clean Critter wipes" on her. she gets a *real* bath every other week, plus olive oil.
it is not a musky smell, she just smells like poop. not like when a rat steps in fresh poo and it's very strong, just this general all-over odor.
I have checked her, and she doesn't have so much as a scratch. I've been keeping a close eye, and she is eating, drinking, and playing like normal. the strangest part to me is that her cagemate smells fresh as a daisy!
I've heard a couple of people mention "bio odor"...what is this?
