Default I'm Sick...

Hey everyone,

After holding out for the entire break, I caught a cold less than a week before my classes resume. I have been dead out. I have only been cleaning Hegemon's wheel daily and feeding/changing his water and not really bonding with him because I don't want him to get sick. It has been 2 days since I have not played with him. I am still really out of it, and I am wondering what to do. Will he get sick if I play with him too much? Or is it worse that I am not bonding with him? He is acting perfectly normal, running all night and all that good stuff but I just want to do what is best for him.

Thanks for your input.

Animals can't catch the common cold. The viruses that cause it are exclusive to humans. It's good to practice good hand washing habits whether or not you're sick, but having a cold is no reason to handle your hedgehog less.

I always wash my hands before and after I play with him, and use hand sanitizer before. I'm glad to hear that he'll be fine. He just woke up and he's looking at me, like, "hellooooo, have you forgotten me?!" so I will go and play with him now! Yay!!
