Smile Whats your favorite thing about owning a Hedgehog?

For me, It's great to have such an exotic small animal. They are like miniature Porcupines and can roll up into a ball like Armadillos. They are so soft and cute looking but have such a menacing defense too. Spike is cool man, plain and simple.

Hmmm... Probably when Prue comes out to greet me when I walk by her cage. It proves that all of the hours bonding have made her trust me, and I love that feeling.

I agree with its pretty sweet having an exotic animal. When I tell people I have a hedgehog their response is always "oh wow that's awesome!". Another thing is I have a buddy at night haha I'm a night owl my dog and everyone else is asleep when I'm still awake, but not pickles! He's the one I can hang out with late at night

My favorite part of owning Stella is how cute, cuddly and good tempered she is! I especially love her nose when she sniffs stuff the way it moves!

I'm lazy...and my hedgehogs are lazy. Both my girls are sleepy cuddlers & perfectly content to curl up on me for a nap during bonding time. Exactly my kind of animal - I can bond with them while watching a tv show, reading, etc. And since they're both female & like to sleep on me, I can have them out together for cuddles, which is convenient when I'm low on energy or time. Their schedule also works well with mine - I'm gone all day while they're sleeping & can change their food, clean whatever needs cleaning, and do handling in the evening when I get home, then they do their thing when I head to sleep.

Riiiight! Their reactions & responses always make me feel prouder. Especially when I take her into Petco, Lowe's, & fabric stores with me and they get to see her. It's amazing.

One of my fave things about having Soda Pop is that she's unpredictable and very entertaining. One hour she'll walk into my hand from her cage, the next she doesn't care if she's with me or not. Her personality is bigger than she is. She really likes to play tug of war with my messenger bag straps & nothing moves except for her body hahaha
