Default Is this good or bad? *Quick Question*

Is it bad to spend too much time with my hedgehog?

During the day he's home alone (8am-1:30), but he's sleeping. And I go home for lunch for an hour and handle him some more. Then I'm with him all day from the time I get home from work till I go to bed (6pm-11 or 12). Maybe like 3 times a month I don't get home till about 8:30 or 9, but that's rare.

Is this ok? Or should I give him his alone time? I figured he has enough alone time at night when he's on his wheel and I'm sleeping.

Thanks!

Sounds fine. As long as he is allowed to sleep most of the day, he will be okay. Some of them thrive on routines.

I usually think as long as they're sleeping they're fine... I sometimes take Dexter out at like 4 for a while and he sleeps on my lap
Most of the time I take him out at like 8pm and he sleeps in my lap until he decides to wake up (usually between 9 and 10) and I put him back in his cage to eat/ poop haha then I take him out again and he runs around on my lap for a while

p.s. your hedgie is SO PRECIOUS! More pics!!! I LOVE the coloring!!!

Thank you! I named him Pointdexter! Almost like yours is named.
I've only had him for about a 2 weeks. I know he's young because he's quilling, but I'm still trying to learn as much as possible (it's my 1st hedgie).
I got him from a friend of my husbands (which doesn't know anything about them), who was looking to buy a fishtank and found a guy selling a tank with 1 hedgie mom and 6 hedgie babies in it. I don't know if the guy was a breeder or just someone that had it as a pet. So I don't know much about his background or where he came from or anything. So I'm trying to prepare myself and learn as much as possible.
I'm heading over to the cage forum to see what ideas I can get for my baby's cage. The one has now I don't feel is big enough, so I want to try and build him a second level.
I'll post pics of him on this thread later today.
Thank you so much for the replys.
