Default scratching at fleece for a loooong time...?

I woke up this morning around 9 and Kamo was at the bottom of her ramp(she has a 2 level C&C cage) scratching at the fleece on it like crazy. So much so that there was a pile of pilled fleece next to it about the size of a golf ball. She had to have been scratching at it for awhile to get that much fleece off. Why would she be doing this? And at 9 in the morning of all times? Maybe I am being paranoid? Idk but I am worried!

Two thoughts based on my life with Snarf:

- are you experiencing/expecting a storm? Snarf always digs like a madman when a storm is coming - usually starts the day before

- poopy feet? As much as he hates baths, Snarfer is always calmer & less likely to begin a digfest after a bath

it started snowing pretty bad on saturday, but that's it. I live in ND so that's nothing new. And she just had a foot bath last night, but there are also small chunks of poo scattered in the area....maybe she got some stuck between her toes last night?
