It could, also, be mange mites which cause her to lose fur and scratch. But these are difficult to spot as they're tiny and burrow into the skin. Also, albinos are more sensitive, particularly to sunlight, so you could try to keep her out of the sun. Really, though, you need to take her along to a vet — but be prepared for a difficult problem. more > Kids Guide 550 Make-Do 558 Make-Do Tea Time Quiz Buzz Rock/Pop

They can stand on three legs and scratch away at an itch — leaving claw scratches a lot more painful than the original itch. Then these start to itch, and a cycle of itch; scratch; itch; scratch begins. This is difficult to stop, and can lead to the animal licking and nibbling the area. This makes matters worse as the area becomes moist and sweaty. Vets can usually help, but if the situation is left it can be much more difficult to control. more follows > Kids Index ...550 Make-Do ...558 Make-Do Tea Time Quiz Buzz Rock/Pop
