Usually Damien takes off immediately to explore. Which if he is on the bed means trying to leap off, so i spend half my time preventing that. if he is on the floor he just kind of scuttles around and finds some nice corners to urinate in to make sure that I have some cleaning chores to do. When he gets tired he comes back and snuggles up in my lap with a blankie

Up until now, Mina would huff and puff at me for a bit, then just run off, explore and poo/pee everywhere along the way. Sunday night when I took her out for her playtime, she was watching the computer screen from my lap while I was on Pogo. Of course after a while she gets bored and decides, "I'm gonna try to jump out of mommy's lap," so I head to the bedroom. The quilts on the bed are all mussed up, so of course, Mina's digging around and exploring underneath them. She pokes her head out from underneath, walks over to me, digs in the folds of the quilt near me, curls up, and then proceeded to lay there watching me. After about 5 minutes, she starts to doze off. All the while I'm going, "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!" - In my head of course...she then yawns, stretches and continues exploring.

Turbo usually snuggles in my lap for about 20 minutes in a blanket, then get's antsy and starts moving around, so I let him down on the floor, and after 2-3 minutes of running he poops, sometimes pees, and just runs around the room for a good 20 minutes exploring. Then he get's tired and tries to find a good spot to go back to sleep, at which point I pick him up again and let him fall asleep on my lap.

Bernas (male) would cuddle up and doze when held. when put down he would explore the surroundings for a minute or two, then come back for another nap. Merga (female) would cuddle up, and watch the surroundings or sleep. if put away, she would come straight back to my side and stay there. and she prefers not being pet. it seems, she considers me to be a big shelter and heater thing. but heaters are not supposed to wave their hands around oh, and she chews just about any piece of cloth she comes upon. Bernas does not have such a habit.

when in cage, both run in the weel if they are not asleep.

Sneezy has peed in my pants many times- i ususally change into pj's right after work- and he tends to crawl up my pant leg....
he is a snuggler out of his cage, but once he wakes up its 100% play time!

Jade chases me around whever i go if i am less than a few feet away (she wont chase anyone else. She crawls around, tries to push me over, tunnels in my shirt or between my legs, and though she almost never stops moving, i can coaxe her to sleep against me, usually on me, against my said, or in the arch of my neck.



P.S. i actually made two posts cuz after i made one and submitted it while it was loading i changed it and pressed sumbit again (all before the page changed from where u type ur post), so it had a bug and made two posts. i just changed the other one to say that. ya.)

Well i already posted what my hedgehog does but now he does different things so i have decided to post what he does now. Ok now i first wake him up which he does not like and always trys to go back to bed, once hes awake i scoop him up and place him in the play pen to go pee and poop instead of doing it on me. Sometimes he doesnt go to the bathroom and decides to go on me instead. Like yesterday i took him out put him in the play pen to do his buisness and he wouldnt go to the bathroom so i just took him downstairs, while downstairs he just slept for a while than woke up and i gave him a few mealies and dried bannanas. He than went back to bed for a while and i started feeling warmth on my leg and he peed on me. So i put him back in his cage gave him fresh food and water and he went to bed. Some days though he is more wild and runs around, all i know is when my hedgehog wants something theres nothing to stop him. Fabio is also in love with mealworms one time he almost bit my finger casue he thought it was a mealworm, its always kinda scary giving them to him cause he goes syco and tries to eat the container that i place the mealworm on. Another wierd thing is everythime i pick up his poop and pee he tries to eat the toilet paper he always tries chasing it so i have to kinda put my hand in front of his face so he doesnt eat it. My fabio is a little piggy.

Bruno will usually start finding a hiding place to go to bed, which is always my blanket or my shirt. He seems to be a VERY sleepy hedgie. He doesn't stay asleep for long periods..he will get out of the blanket wander around a little and come back. The when he smells meal worms he immediantly get up and eats them all up. Bruno used to poop and pee when i took him out but for the last couple weeks he hasn't had one accident on me..he goes in his litter box or on his wheel.
