If you pick her up, dont hesitate just go for it. Bare through the discomfort and you will be ok

Are you trying to get her out during the day?

Yes, make sure that you are handling her during the hours when she wants to be awake. I have found that after 10:00pm is when Prudence becomes less grumpy, but an hour or two earlier than that is still better than during the day.

One thing that really helped me get used to picking up my last hedgehog was watching videos on YouTube showing how it's done. Seeing someone else do it really does make it easier. Don't let her huffiness discourage you, it will all be worth it in the end!

This video is good:

Prudence's Proud Mum Since February 2016

I share my home with one, big, slobbery dog, a ragdoll, a blind domestic shorthair, a slinky tabby, one crowntail betta, a double tail halfmoon betta, and our latest quilled addition... Prudence!
