Hello! Today I took cassie out to play and she was super jumpy. She was trying to get away from me the whole time. I put my hand on her back and she bit me. She would freak out if i held her in my arms/lap. She has never done this before and is usually really calm. She also is shaking and itching alot. Any answers?

How old is she? She could be quilling. If there is another change, like new hand soap, lotion, new person, laundry detergent, or animal, that could be upsetting her as well.

She is eight months old. She might be quilling because I do find a few stray quills while Im cleaning her cage. It could also be laundry detergent because I think my mom switched detergent. Thank you!

Yeah, the laundry detergent sounds like that might be the problem. Just give her time to get used to it and if she does not stop over the next few weeks, maybe something else is going on. Good luck! :)
