Default My Husband is deploying


My husband is deploying to Afghanistan in a few days and we have 2 wonderful baby boys. Both of our hedgehogs are attached to him more than others but one in particular is super attached. He is worried that our hedgehogs won't remember him when he comes back. They both chew all of his clothes and self anoint almost every time they are with him. His deployment is only going to be 9 months this time. I'm wondering if any of you have information on the mental capabilities of hedgehogs... are they able to remember someone with such a large absence? It'd be a little heart breaking if they treated him like a complete stranger when he comes home. Any military hedgehog owners out there with some experience?

No experience, just an idea:

Maybe get your husband to give you a store of smelly fabric for them? Buy a fleece blanket, chop it up, and stuff it in his pockets, sleep with it, whatever for the next while. Try to have enough that you can ration them out so you can replace them once every 1-2 weeks with fresh smelly fabric... For maximum smelliness, maybe add in a sweaty gym shirt and store it all in a airtight box.
