Default Anyone awake?

Hey all!

So Ellie was great for her bath tonight and for the first time, I took her into the bath tub (blocked off the drain) because I figured that would be tons of running and play space for her! She was semi active in it, but eventually crawled in her sack. Now, she's totally lethargic. Not huffing/puffing for anything, not coming out of her curled spike ball, etc. She is definitely breathing and I have her in a snuggle sack on my lap, on top of a human heating pad, with a light blanket on top of that. I've been snuggling her for an hour, or maybe a little less, but no progress. What do I do, guys?

Update: very small movements are finally happening from her snuggle sack. I lightly brushed a quill and she had a very small reaction to it no idea how I'm going to sleep tonight though haha

Another update: Ellie finally started moving like a crazy woman in her sack (usual self when snuggling) after 2 hours (but only one hour of the heating pad, prior to which I only used hand warmers). Usually the back and sides and top of her cage is covered but for tonight I also covered the front just to keep extra heat in.

Although it would still be great to know what to do in case she didn't get up!

the thing about water their already very senceative but if they sniff in water to their lungs it can cause what they call dry drowning it happends alot more in kids but can also happen with pets you have to be very careful around water with the hedgies cause their already so small it dont take much at all the best of luck with your little one
