Default Just Curious.

So, My hedgehog appears to have set himself on a schedule where he wakes up a certain amount of time after his light shuts off for the night. However, if I have him out too close to when or after his light shuts off, he wakes up way later than usual, even if he sleeps on me while I have him out and I put him back before or right around when he wakes up according to his little schedule. I was just wondering if anyone else's hedgehog does this?

Pindsvin is kind of like that, he will not wake up until I wake him up. He sleeps out of his cage during the day, but regardless of the time will not wake up until I come get him, it doesnt matter if its 7pm or 4am. Until I wake him, he wont get up. But if he wakes up late he will still use the cycle that he is used to, it will just run until later in the morning. I think it's just whatever they are used to,
they go with

Knarla had an odd schedule due to blindness. Sleep a few hours, awake a few, all day and night.

If I wake her though, she tends to be awake for awhile even after I put her back in her cage.

Unless it's the morning. If I wake her in the morning she grumpily returns to her hut the moment I stop bugging her.
New hedgehog mom to 2-year-old blind rescue, Knarla!
She deserves the best, so I'm very open to advice or tips.
