Question Anointing

So, Im new. HI
I got my little Cleo 3 months ago the day she turned 8 weeks. I was told she wouldn't self anoint herself until about 6 months. Last night she became active from sleeping in my lap in a matter of seconds then wandered onto my book I was reading and licked and bit it. A few seconds later she foamed up and rubbed it on her quills. Is it too early for her to doing this? Are there reasons, like stress, she could be doing it? Thanks!

Hi! It is completely normal for her to be anointing at that age! Don't be alarmed, whoever told you that is wrong. Hedgehogs normally anoint when they smell a new scent, aka your book. So to answer your question, no, it's not stress and it's completely normal for her to be doing this. I got my baby when he was about 6 weeks and he did it the first time day that I put my slept in t-shirt in his hide out!
