Bruce, thanks for the answers. Panama wasn't really eating. Now its like he/she is acting normal again. It was really weird. Still tearing up the newspaper in his/her cage. I can't feel a bulge or anything. My hours did change some at work, but that is normal. That was the only change.
I was thinking he/she was just being moody. I have been some boxes in there for him/her to tear up. Do you think that could have triggered the want to nest?
Thanks for answering so fast again.
Julie
