Pugsley was not pleased but also didn’t seem to mind during the bath. He even ran around the tub sniffing and in total explore mode, but as soon as I took him out and put him in the hedgie burrito to dry him off he immediately crawled out and crawled up under my chin and just snuggled down like he was traumatized.

I gave up on hedgehog burritos because of how Holly just climbs out and down my jumper😂

The more I hear about Holly the more I love her lol...
Pugs doesn’t like the burrito but likes being against me with the towel over him. Now I don’t know if he was just trying to get away and that’s as far as he could climb or if he was actually seeking cuddles for comfort but either way it was stinking adorable.

Can you see the absolute horror and traumatization in his eyes? Lol I promise he was in complete explore mode in the tub. Running around and sniffing, he even ran under the faucet a few times.

No, after baths all hedgehogs become way more cuddly because even if the explore its still the worlds worst thing for them !! Well in their eyes anyway !!
Holly really is so loveable

I’ll keep that in mind for his next bath. He’s a pretty clean hedgie so he doesn’t need them very often. At least for now anyway.
You’re always such a great help Ria, thank you!

Holly rarly has baths, Shes had 3 baths in her whole life. I dont give foot baths because I use other methods to not cause too much stress on her about them. Also helps me clean them more often.

I just saw one of your posts about that!! Using a damp cloth, toothbrush, and a dry cloth!
I think that’s better so their skin doesn’t dry out due to the soap stripping the natural oils away.
Pugsley only got on this time because he wasn’t really dirty but he stank.

Ria 03-27-2019 02:19 PM

Its great it does a good job, its less stressful on both me and her, and has less chance of drying out skin. Oh and she gets treats😂
