Default Hello :)

Hello everyone my name is Emma and I have a two and a half year old hedgehog, her name is Charlotte. I just recently got her and we are already best friends, she's super comfortable with me and we just connected very fast. She doesn't like boys at all which Im not sure why but she just dosent but I hope to share many moments that I have with her with everyone.

That would probably not be a good idea, depending on what level of school you're at. I wouldn't suggest taking a hedgehog for a full day of class in high school (or college, for that matter). It's also likely that if you're still in high school or lower, your teacher(s) would not approve of the visitor since she'd likely be distracting for you & other students. If you end up with a half day (for high school) or if you only have one lecture class to go to (for college), that might be okay.

Other points to consider:
- I wouldn't take her right now, especially if you're anywhere that has cold weather currently. IMO, winter outings should be strictly limited to necessary trips such as the vet or overnight trips that you're bringing your hedgehog on, etc. You can take precautions to make sure hedgie stays warm, but I don't see the point of risking a chill or hibernation attempt for fun trips.

- You may be wanting to take her so you can show her off to your friends or anyone else interested in meeting her. But keep in mind how stressed out she might get. You're taking her out during the day, which is when she's supposed to sleep, she'll be out of her known environment, and she'll be around strange people that she doesn't know are safe. Some hedgehogs do a great job handling this! But if she's grumpy, scared, or very stressed, then she should be allowed to hide in a sleeping bag or carrier and not forced to interact with people. She should also be allowed to sleep for the majority of the trip.

- Make sure you take supplies, especially if it's more than just an hour or so. Water, treats, an extra blanket in case she pees or poops in her carrier or sleeping bag, paper towels and/or wipes to clean up messes, hand sanitizer (which I would make people use before & after handling her), and treats to make the experience more enjoyable for her.

In general, I wouldn't suggest taking her. But there are sometimes situations where it would be okay as long as you're careful and keep in mind her comfort. I took Lily to college twice and she did fine with both trips, but they were both under 3-4 hours and she slept most of the time.
