Default Re: Scared hedgehog due to hair dye smell?

I agree with Avarris. They're very sensitive to smells, especially strong ones, and it most likely masked the "you" smell that she's used to, causing her to be disoriented and viewing you as a stranger and therefore a "threat". Give her some time to get used to the residual smell, she'll be fine.
