Aww! That's adorable.
I would think another downside to taking him out and flaunting him would be messing up the sleep routine. But it's nice to know I can still move around and do things while having bonding time as long as she feels secure enough to stay asleep in my scarf or sweatshirt.
That being said, the winters in Colorado are definitely not mild. I wouldn't even attempt taking her out during the winter.
So again, I'm having a hard time believing my friends hedgie was okay even after being transported OUTSIDE from class to class in the winter!!
