Default No one warned me about the SHEDDING

I was warned about the quilling, the mealworms, the cleaning the wheel, clipping the nails, bathing the hedgehog, cleaning the cage, the many and myriad health terrors.

No one warned me that hedgehogs? SHED. Every time I cuddle with my sweet Bilbo, she leaves a trail of tiny white hairs on my shirt. I pick her up and set her on my desk? Little white hairs all over the place. Really now Bilbo? Your ancestors came from AFRICA. You THRIVE in warmer weather. WTF is with the shedding?!

I love the name, hehe, Bilbo.

Hedgies can shed a little bit, but an excess amount might mean that she has dry skin? Have you noticed any dander in addition to the fur? This could just be marked off as silly hedgie behavior too, haha. I would try and add some flax seed oil to food and keep an eye on her skin health and look out for bald patches on her tummy.
