So Cocoa had her first day outside in the grass yesterday, She liked it, But the dog stalking her made her sorta nervous, Good thing he hates water. Or else bad things woulda happened. C:

I experienced all this with slade when I first got him. We probably got our hedgies in a one or two day radius, Cocoa! I know I might be a little late on the bonding/picking up thing but slade just LOVES to be handled. Maybe thats just his personality. At first I would use a blanket to pick that ball-o-death up and that worked out fine. But now, even thought the quills still hurt when i pick him up after hes in my hands, maybe half a second and hes out of his ball. If you sling a t-shirt you've worn all day or slept in over the wall of his cage or put in there and over his sleeping area/in a place where he would sleep in it, it really establishes trust. I think thats why slade always unbundles so quick. He smells me and his quills go down. I can do a full stroke on his back without his quilling up. I really do think the t shirt thing helps. Maybe give that a try! I hope everything goes well with you and cocoa and a second hello from another Texan!

Matthew- the t-shirt idea is pretty effective . It's pretty normal for hedgies to be grumpy when you first wake up.

And have I already asked you where in Texas you are? I'm up north of Dallas near Frisco
