Default depression

So for whatever reason, I am feeling a bit depressed tonight. Now Lestibournes isn't super attached to me, I think. Anyway, I went and layed down next to his cage and cried, and he woke up and turned to look at me. I'm wondering if it was a "mom, I'm trying to sleep" glare, or if it was an "are you okay" look. I guess I am just a bit down and discouraged. He's more of an explorer than a cuddler, but I love him just the same, even if he is to figure out why I am suddenly depressed. :P

Everyone has periods of sadness. Could be something that is subconsciously bothering you. Or maybe you are stressed out about something. But it's normal to feel down one in a while for no reason. At least you have your little guy to cheer you up even if he's a grumpy pants! My hedgie is an explorer too by the way. But she has her cuddle moments every now and then

I am feeling much better today. I can't wait to get home and see my baby.

So it came back today by the time evening came around and just kept getting worse. I just took him out to hold and normally he is all squirmy, wanting to explore. This time, though, as I cried, he just sniffed my face and let me cuddle him to my chest. At least for a little while. Then he got restless and began to run around. Still, I am surprised he just sat there and let me cuddle him. Just when I think I can't possibly love him anymore than I already do, he turns around and proves me wrong. I'm still sad for some reason, but he definitely helped. You were right. Explorers do have their cuddle moments.
