Default New Hedgie Help

I picked up my little guy last night. Since then he has been running around his cage in circles. I went ahead and gave him his wheel. He hopped on and started running immediately and went to sleep about half an hour later. Now every time I walk by his cage he runs over to see me and tries to climb up the side. (He cant actually climb up because we have clear vinyl up the side). So I have him cuddling on the couch with me.

My question is if this is okay, since everything I have read says to give them space the first couple of days.

Every hedgehog, like every person, is a little different. If he is ok and seems comfortable then go with it. Just keep a close eye on his stress levels and give him space when he needs it.

It sounds like he loves you already! Like the above poster said, they all have different personalities. Lucky for you, it seems like he'd rather be in your company than in his cage. How old is he?

He's absolutely adorable. Congratulations on your new family member!

He will be 7 weeks tommorow! I love him already.

I'm just hoping he warms up to my boyfriend soon.
