Question about my squirrel girl (Pootie)

I've had Pootie for almost 4 years and every spring into early summer she seems to have hormones in play that makes her disposition less than sweet. This year I notice her little nipples are really sticking out prominently. I've noticed them before but not like this. I only have one squirrel and am ...

How long does it take MBD to show up and is it always an err on the human's...

The same thing happened when I touched Pootie's front paw through the cage bars. I tried to pet her paw again and she slapped at me. I pestered her and made sure I petted her back paws many times until she didn't mind. geez. I've also had to water plants daily.
