Default He likes me! He really likes me! :)

I've had Razor about 6-7 weeks, n I've been handling him every day, n dealing wit grumpy face after his foot bath every nite, n he really is getting better with being handled! He rarely balls up anymore, but he does hate the act of being picked up ( which I know some hogs will never be ok with) n he gets frantic until I put him against me.. He's been falling asleep on me for a couple weeks now but it's always either on my stomach with his face under my arm, or he crawls up higher to shove his face in my armpit (which never last long cuz I'm soooo tickleish lol)
But yesterday he fell asleep in my hands!!!! He was just too cute! My 7 year old son took this pic n of course he couldn't be quiet so that's why Razor is awake but he quickly fell back to sleep
So to all the new hedgie owners-- it is possible!!!

How cute! From what I've experienced in my few weeks of hedgehog ownership it's really exciting to see that trust growing

It's really is amazing to see them start to trust u! When I give my little guy a bath he comes right to the side of the tub that I'm on and tries to climb up the wall to get to me and if I put my hand in, he quickly climbs on! It's the only time HE chooses to be picked up lol but it's nice to know that I'm the lesser of the 2 evils lol (he HATES taking a bath! Even foot baths make him give me the 'grumpy face' for a while after)
He will now also take food from hand, and when I hold him on his back n he curls up into a ball he will let me rub his ears and pet the sides of his face!!! He has come around SO much in the 2 months I've had him n Im so excited to see him progress even more!!

Btw, *hogwild*, ur hedgie is absolutely adorable!! I jus love the split face, and that little white streak of quills right in front!!!

Oh wow, I wish I could pet Banjo's face but he hates when anyone touches his head! Maybe one day he'll let me. I love his white streak too! The funny thing about his split face is that he matches my border collie because she has a black patch across the right side of her face too. I didn't even make the connection until I'd had him for like a week, lol.
