Re: falling fur
All animals (humans includes!) lose hair. The question is: How much hair are they losing?
A hedgie, especially a young one, can undergo some really intense shedding phases, when your black shirt will look decorated with a lot of white fur.
How much hair was lost? Was it in patches or in small clusters? Had your hedgehog already been awake that day, or did they come straight out of bed to snuggle?
