Default Re: Hedgie Taming

Fear not OP, your hedgehog will soon have you fully tamed and trained to do her bidding.

One of her needs is to poop and pee. She will help train you on these matters. Pay attention to what she is saying - if you see her becoming fidgety, or her tail pop out in a "turkey's done" manner, or she assumes a wide-legged stance, she is telling you: "I'm about ready to poop/pee." It is then your job to get her to a good place to accomplish that task. Easiest solution I've found is to bring her litter box out during playtime and allow her to use it. That and hedgie wipes (ie, baby wipes) to deal with the messies when communication between the two of you isn't at 100%.
