I'm guessing she wasn't a fan of being wet? After you give her a bath, wrap her up in a towel and let her cuddle in your lap for a while. This will giver a chance to dry off, stay warm, and help keep her calm. If she's not completely dry, she might be going a little nutso from the wet areas on her feeling too cool for her linking.

I'm probably too late with this but thought I'd share...

Snarf HATES baths and gives me the evil eye for days after.

When he's done, I try to wrap him in a towel quickly, cuz he runs - yes, while he's in a towel - I can feel his feet...he is frantically trying to escape. I don't want to put him down until I at least get some moisture off him, so I learned...s'cuse me...he has taught me this process: two towels and at least three pieces of fleece must be ready...BF drops him into Towel #1, I quickly wrap him up as much as I can and must get his head covered...run to bedroom and sit on bed (less of a drop if he cliff-dives out of towel)...unroll towel and gently roll hedgie, who is really, really mad now, into Towel #2 and quickly wrap, as done for Towel #1...hold close to chest (you need all the body parts you can get) and gently pat dry as much as possible...peek into towel and try to reach anything but head area with dry corner of towel...pat...pat...pat... avoid face/head at all cost...gently unroll and re-roll into fleece...repeat until all fleece in house is wet...gently...carefully try to wedge angry hedgie in new clean hedgie bag and place in cage. Gently attempt to touch hedgie to ensure is relatively dry. Expect hedgie to emerge from bag angry and stomping out and glaring - will eventually curl up and go to sleep...walk around and pick up fleece and towels and mop up water...find alcohol (for you, not the hedgie).
