Dashi has stabilized again, but she's not herself. She's not as bright and has stopped running in her wheel. Last night while I had her out, she was cuddled under my chin and I feel these rhythmic jerks that worried me. I moved her further away so I could see and she started a choking and clicking gasping motion that went on for about 25 seconds then she stopped, started grooming herself happily and clambered around on me. Huh?
Today after I cleaned her cage I noticed her neck looked a little lumpy and carefully felt it...she has a mass on her throat which would account for the choking episodes
I also thought I felt a small mass before her hip bone in her abdomen, but palpating a mouse is really difficult, even a sweetheart like Dashi.
So no happy fairytail (hehe) ending for Dashi, as I am sure Michelle won't want her since she's not healthy, so I will make her life as good as I can.
Dashi gets bored, and needs to be taken out. She loves climbing on people (I lie down and watch TV), sniffing faces,pushing under hands for pats...she's really like a friendly miniature rat
First we start off with the stroking she loves...she even tips her cheek for you. LOL
And after this its time to groom
Yeah, the mohawk look...perfect!
