GUILTY !

Finally I found the culprit...! It turned out that Nutka's dewlap was hurt by... the hay! Because of her age her dewlap became bare, uncovered and unprotected by the fur so the sharp weeds of dried grass were hurting her (poor thing) while she was looking for the food underneath her bedding. I changed the nesting material to the soft trashed paper towels only and the problem disappeard as if it never existed. No more grass in the cage, Nutka, I promise...!

    1. Is it all right now with his pet? I haven't have any problems like that since the hay was gone.
