Default Nick the hedgie and his human

Figured I'd come make an intro post. So hello everyone, I'm Bee and I'm co-human to Nick the adorable hedgie in my sig picture.
I like to joke that I'm co-human and that I accidentally adopted him because I had been gushing to his original human about how adorable hedgehogs were, around the time the original owner got orders to go overseas (military) asked me to look after Nick. It all happened very fast (I had only held a hedgehog once before, and knew next to nothing) and the next morning I was having something like 'new-father syndrome' while the other co-human was off to his new post.

Since that time we've had some trial by fire, but Nick and I seem to have settled into a good life together. Our first night may have included me frantically calling my friend near tears but just over 7 months of ownership and I think I've gotten a good handle on this Hedgie owner business. Though he still does things to scare me (I made a post about that in health already ), we've passed through them. I've soaked up just about every bit of information I could about hogs, we've gotten past the initial 'weird new human' stage, and now he likes to give prickly cuddles whenever I play with him.
Within a month I had him interacting with my kitties and it was a slow process of holding Nick in closer degrees so they could catch each others scents, but now one seems to regard him with a bit of a crush (she like laying near his cage and interacting with him) and the older cat seems to regard nick like he's a prickly kitten. Some nights are very nice as I'll get a cuddly lap kitty and Nick cuddling up in the crook of my arm. (Though I'll mention that there's never any unmonitored interactions between the two species, and Nick's cagetop is always secured when he's in there.)

If you're still figuring out hedgehog-care, and haven't seen it, this book is lovely (& free to download!).

Very cute picture, its hard for me not to find hedgehogs cute, I have to say they are just so sweet. Its good to know you guys had some real boding times. Me and Skullmageddon are still in the weird human stages, but he's pretty outgoing methinks. He napped in my armpit for a good hour before exploring the couch.
