Red face Enough Interaction?

Hi all!
My hedgehog is quilling so I usually only have her out in my lap each day for about an hour because she is cranky. Is that okay? Want to make sure I am treating her well

As long as she’s around you/on your lap/ next to you, she’ll still have that ‘me time’ with you for her to build the trust. Quilling time can be tricky in this regard, but it is best to keep the direct contact to a minimum since they’re so uncomfortable. If she comes out of her pouch/hide/blanket to explore with quills down, go ahead and pick her up and let her sit on your hands! Just don’t over do it especially if she’s quills up &#x1f642;

An hour of being in your lap sounds really great while she is a bit cranky from quilling. If she doesnt mind and you reallyyy want to you could add half an hour to it. But 1 hour is good.
