Default Re: Tired hedgie! Need bonding and play time tips!

My hedgehog is kinda the same way. She doesn't like exploring and prefers to sleep in my lap. I've learned to just let her do what she wants.There is only one kind of treat Hilde really likes, and that's mealworms. My new thing is to put them in a paper dixie cup and let her eat them straight out of the cup. She shoves her whole head in and then leaves it there, wearing it like a helmet. She seems to like that and even tries to walk around in my lap with it on. She usually doesn't get far before falling over.
That's playtime for us! She doesn't like toys and she doesn't like being anywhere but in my lap on on the couch (usually under the pillows). You may just have a snuggly hedgehog. I wouldn't try to get her to do anything she doesn't want to and just keep trying different treats and hopefully you'll find something she likes.
