Default Can you pass a cold to your hedgie?

Can you pass a general cold to your hedgie? I have tried not to handle Holden as much because I am sick but he hasn't come out to eat much today and I'm freaking out that I passed my cold onto him. Does anyone know?

I don't think colds can be passed from one to another species. If you want to be safe, though, maybe just hold him in his blanket and don't pet him directly.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't take him out last night because it was my worst day but it makes me feel a bit better that he couldn't get the germs from being in my room.
