Default Hi everyone, new hedgie mom here! :)

Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself and my hedgie.
My name is Sarah and my hedgehog's name is Arowen (mix between Arwen and Eowyn from Lord of The Rings...big LOTR fan here) she is almost 4 months old and I've had her for almost 2 months. She is the first hedgehog I've ever owned since I finally have a big enough space for her in my new house. Before getting her my boyfriend and I did tons of research on things like heating, cage size, proper bedding and are still learning as we go. Which is why I decided to join this site, I figured I was visiting it so much anyways.
So far Arowen is doing really well, after a few weeks she really started to get comfortable with us which was really rewarding since we were being so patient with her. My boyfriend wasn't quite sure how he felt about hedgehogs at first, but it's safe to say he thinks she's adorable...and I'm pretty sure she prefers him over me, go figure lol.
Thanks to anyone who took the time to read this

Sounds about right. We have had plenty now that picked my husband to be their primary care giver. Part of that I'm sure is that I'm the "bad" one. I'm the one that primarily does the things they dislike, e.g. nail trimmings. We have had a few where I would trim nails, and once done they would sit on his chest and give me the "glare." You know the look, head quills half erect stare. "If you make a move for me lady the head quills will go full up and I'll huff at you." look.
