Hello I'm new here! Thank you for having such an informative site!
Anyway, my squirrel was running around and playing on the sofa when the tip of her tail fell off. There are no nails, staples, or sharp edges on my sofa and no one grabbed or tugged at her tail. But we noticed the tip of the tail just laying there! I picked it up and sure enough it wasn't just the fluffy hair but a small tiny piece of her tail was in there, blood on it - where it had broken off. I looked at my squirrel (Fay) and she seemed fine. No blood draining from her tail and she didn't seem to notice that part of her tail fell off. She was just as playful and continued to have a good time. Although she didn't want to go to bed and fought going back to her cage at bedtime (this is normal tho).
Do parts of tail fall off randomly or is this abnormal? She does have a squirrel buddy (Jazz) that is the same age and they play together, and they were both playing on the sofa at the same time.
Thank you for any advice :-)
