Default airplanes

I realize they are brought over on planes sometimes, and I searched for this... but does the change in pressure hurt them? I want to travel with him. I know how to make him go to the bathroom so him relieving himself on me won't happen but I just don't want him hurt is all.

You will have to check with the airline you are flying with about animals. Most won't allow animals in the cabin and even if they do they usually only allow cats and small dogs, hedgies have to ride cargo! Look under the travel section and you should be able to find lots of threads about airplane travel.

?? You know how to do this? Do tell, I'm curious. I like to take my out and about as well but the pottying does take some of that fun out of it.

I believe one of quillyone's hedgies had issues with the altitude when she was on a plane once... you'd have to ask her though. I've taken mine in cabin without noticable problems.

You can't do that right before you take them out of the house. There is way too much risk of him/her getting a chill going out when wet and by the time he is dry enough, well he'ed be ready to poop again.

Pretend your hands are a wheel; keep putting one in front of the other as hedgie runs from hand to hand; let poops fall between your fingers. That way, it's just like hedgie wheeled (complete with the pooping), but without the messy feet. Of course, you might need a hedgiewipe for your hands to deal with messes that didn't quite slip through your fingers
