Default Boy Hedgie Problems

... This is the most awkward question to post I think. So Gimli likes his boy time.. not just a little but a whole lot. I usually give his feet a bath every few days and to get anything else off of him and lately I've been noticing that he's been getting a lot of "boy stuff" on his belly and it is solid and a nightmare to get off. Is there anything I can do to make it easier on my little boy other than a 20 minute soak followed by some scrubbing? Normally I wouldn't mind because it has been just him, but starting tomorrow I will have a new addition coming, and with school coming back in session I want to be able to give both hedgies love without having to spend a large amount of time in the bathtub!

no, there's nothing else you can do (in my experience).

Perhaps other's may have suggestions, but I just had to accept the fact that Moka would have sperm stuck in his fur on the regular. It like, partially solidifies and is impossible to get out the fur. Like bubblegum in hair.

One of my boys in particular gets it all over him. I've never had trouble getting it off, at least most of it. It doesn't come off from scrubbing but when it's wet with warm water from a bath, it gets soft and I just tug it out of the fur.
