Default Re: Behaviour expectations

i have also noticed that a lot of people have some very unrealistic expectations of hedgehogs. they expect that their hedgies will fall asleep on them and snuggle with them and that often is not the case. i have had momo over a year now, she is a lovely sweet natured little girl who seems very happy in my company but even she will not fall asleep on me and can get angry if i try to touch anywhere near her face, i can play with her quill as much as i like but as soon as i get too close to her face the quills come out with avengenge. i think for anyone thinking of getting a hedgie they have to be prepared for any type of personality and not expect too much especially not too fast!
i love Holly Hedgepig (APH), Suzie(APH),Paco (APH) Mitch (APH), Pharoah (mad unknown long eared of some sort), Welly (tenrec), Nino (the dragon), Lacy (dog) and Jess (cat).
