Unhappy Behavior Change... :(

Last weekend I left ollie with one of my friends for three days (she took perfect care of him) but now that he is back home he is acting different. He seems to not wont to be held anymore by me. Anytime I try to hold him he will his ans spike but when my dad tries to hold him he seems to be fine. I want to go back to how he used to cuddle my finger and let me pet him and what not. What would your advice be for me?

Keep holding him anyway! He may just be holding a grudge against you for leaving him - some of them get pretty grumpy when they're left with a hedgiesitter, no matter how well they're taken care of. You can try putting a shirt or fleece blanket that you've slept with for a couple days into his cage and see if it helps him remember your scent again. Other than that, just hang in there and give him some time to remember that you're his mama and to forgive you for leaving.
