    Default Tip of Jasmines Tale Feels Really Thick

    Maybe this is normal but I never noticed it when she didnít have the long hair on tail. But the top of her tail is thicker than the rest of her tail. Not the hair but the fleshy part. Is this normal? Today she has not been herself. She is always going but today aand tonight all she wants to do is sit on the curtains. Hoping she isnít getting sick. She is about 4 months old.

    Can you post a picture so we can see what you are seeing to hopefully address the situation with her tail?
    Proper nutrition is very important for these babies, many health issues including those with skin and fur can
    often be associated to a diet without the nutritional balance of a squirrel's daily requirements.
    What formula has she been fed and what does her daily diet consist of?

    It isnít something you can see on her tail. It is something I feel. Her bony fleshy part of tail is small and round getting smaller to the tip. The tip of tail maybe 1/8 of inch is bigger more fleshy rounded. My only theory is this makes it easier for her to flip her tail? It doesnít seem to hurt her at all. Fur is totally covering it. No fur missing. Today she played all around my house for a good hour. Now resting. Destroyed my sons laundry basket within a matter of minutes. I think I have house squirrel proof and she still finds stuff to chew on.
