    I bought a mineral block from the pet store, pink. Now Missy (grey) is pink on her face, belly and paws, Cookie (black) has a pink nose and pink paws.

    Lol I have a lot of people contacting me with this problem and panic incase it hurts them.
    It is a pain to get them back to their original colour but plenty of sandbaths will eventually do the trick.

    Lol, this happened to me as well. Furby absolutely the mineral block but she looked funny for a little while. It took about two weeks for the colour to clean off but it didn't seem to bother her at all.
