Wear a old t shirt 1-2 days and then put it in the igloo or wherever your Hedgie is going to sleep. This helps associate your scent with comfort. When your Hedgie hisses/pops/curl into a ball don't put it back in the cage. They'll associate it as a reward. Give it couple days to get use to new sounds, smells, surroundings. Last is patience. Hedgie are grumpy creatures Takes a lot of time for them to get use to you. I've had Taco for over 2 months now and he'll still hisses and pops at me when I take him but he calms down after a minute or so.

Thank you so much. I really love animals, and I am going to be a vet when I grow up. I will also own a pet shop. It is really helpful with all of these tips! Thank you.
