i probably should have researched before i frantically posted...is this a molt? is this a normal molt? her sister isn't showing any signs of loosing fur.

Mines' get like that from time to time. Molt or rubbing when trying to enter a small hole.

Pearl's was just like that for over 6 months; just now filling in. Moults show huge variations among individuals.
