Default Tails Update........

Hey Everyone.....
I have had Tails for a week now and she seems to be doing great!!! She's eating well...although she's not a big fan of fruits........gonna try her on some veggies tonight....and shes just a running,pooping machine!!! Anyway.......the first few days I had her she would just kinda relax and hide in her blankie when I picked her up....now when I pick her up she's all squirmy like she's trying to get away from me.....and she's BITING ......She bites on her blankie sometimes too when I'm holding her, but it's almost like she's playing tug of war....is this normal behavior?? I was just reading some of your posts and I see that a lot of your guys hedgies will sleep on ur lap and stuff.....Tails will not settle down when I pick her up....is there anyway I can get her to be calmer....and what do i do about the biting????

Thanks in advance for your help!!!!!!

she's a baby, right? sometimes they seem to get crazy bursts of energy before going back to being cute sleepy balls. anyway, i have 1 hedgie that is just a spaz. i think he always will be. he rarely tries to jump backwards out of everybody's hands now & will occasionally sit quietly for approx 30 seconds with you...but what he really wants is to play in the giant hedgie blankie fortress & then go to sleep or hang out next to his brother & snooze (he's a T'weed & these 2 really like being together). he still gets some mandatory human interaction but it isn't his thing. as long as he is healthy & happy, i am fine. he is not particularly normal though...so no worries Tails is going to turn into my spazz-ball. i am sure she will settle down somewhat. she may just be growing & wanting to explore.

as for the biting, i have a biter. i have several posts on it. i have had to come to accept him & his mouth. however, several people here have had success in discouraging the behavior. i am blanking on who it was but one person had great success with the only method that ever has any impact on my little guy when he is being a total brat & not just using his mouth to communicate. it is under one of the recent biting threads. she (i believe - apologies is memory serves me wrong) works with the behavior in a really good way. you have to be consistent though.

if she is just chewing & tugging on things as opposed to flesh than i would be less worried. lots of hedgies like to tug & gnaw, it seems. whether it be pre-annointing or just for amusement. almost all of mine will do that to some extent. but i only have the 1 biter.

sorry to be of so little help...but sending good support vibes your way!
