It has just started recently and more since she lost her companion this week. When I pick her up she is okay for a while and then I go to put her back and she makes panic noises and I put her back in and she runs around squealing like she’s scared. She has not been like this before. Can anyone help Me understand what is going on?

thank you

It may be that she felt braver with her friend around. I commented on your other thread that I would take it back to basics with regards handling etc. Continue the weekly weighing and health check and perhaps just do hand feeding for now. She may be squealing because she’s looking for her friend.
