Default When to handle

Hey, i was wondering if there is a better time to play and pickup your hedgehog? I know they are nocturnal so she would rather be up at night, but i have more time during the day than closer to the night to play with her. If i kept waking her up to play during the days would that be bad since than she wont be having her sleep? thank you

Playing with her for 30 min to an hour during the day shouldn't bother her too much. Like the next time you tidy up her cage, keep her out and bond with her a few extra minutes Also, just letting her nap on you for a while is great for bonding, even if she isn't very playful.
