Exclamation :D thank you HHC!

I just want to thank everyone on HHC! Ever since I knew I was bringing a hedgie home, I have been browsing the forums for all kinds of info and insight. I have learned so much, and I really do appreciate all the time effort everyone puts in to helping us new owners out. I'm sure my hedgie, Baron Adolf von Hallertau appreciates it as well

On a side note, I was able to clip a few nails last night while giving a foot bath - what a great idea for a huffy hedgie who doesn't like to sit still on his back. And even better - we had the best bonding moment when I was drying his tummy with a towel while he was sitting in my lap! He wasnt huffing or balling, he just layed there all relaxed while I dried him off... I just had to share that little success

Default Re: :D thank you HHC!

HHC is by far one of the best hedgehog websites out there. I would have been so lost in my quest to get a hedgie if I hadn't stumbled across HHC! We are lucky to have so many experienced owners and breeders who are willing to help us out.

It's great that you found a nail clipping method that works! And congratulations on having a special bonding moment. Things that seem unimportant to people who don't have hedgies are actually great success stories. I almost cried the first time my Mildred let me pet her tummy! When I told my mom about it, she was like, "Oh. Cool..."

Keep up the great work! It sounds like you're doing a wonderful job.

I know exactly what you mean! When I tried to tell some of my friends how excited I was that he hasn't bitten me in over a week, they just looked at me like I was crazy. "Why would you want a pet who bites you and is so grumpy all the time?"

Maybe I am crazy, but I think the harder I have to work to get him to trust me, the more joy I will get out this relationship, just because of all the hedgie steps we will take together!
