Re: What does your hedgie do when out of the cage?

Sonny, for some strange reason, thinks I am a jungle gym. When I am on the computer, he loves to "rock climb" up my chest [because I sit upright] and he makes his way to my shoulders and plays with my hair and runs back and forth from each shoulder through my hair then he gets tired and I let him run about the kitchen and sniff about, but the floor is kind of cold so he will just sit there taking everything in.
He also attacks the can of crickets! His nose is right next to my fingers when I am opening the can and as soon as its opened, he'll eat straight out of the can [4 or 5 at a time] and then go straight back to exploring.
He makes me giggle

Jasper heads directly for the dog's dish and climbs in. He spends the next 1/2 hour feasting, occassionally leaning over for a sip from the water dish.

Winston runs. And runs and runs and runs. I let him out in the kitchen, and sit on the floor with a book or on the phone, and he just goes nuts, streaking all over the kitchen. He'll come and sniff my pants, or try to crawl up the legs, or climb up onto me, then off and back for more running. Last night, he did some new weird stuff. He lay flat on the ground and pulled himself along the floor while sniffing or huffing at something. He did this a few times and then went back to running. I have no idea what he was trying to do

Rascal eats a few mealie worms or chicken then he settles in my arms for a cuddle or a sleep. If he gets restless then he wants a drink of water or to go to the toilet

My guy was active the first day or two after I got him and would roam around exploring. Now, he finds a good place to sleep and curls up. Occasionally he wakes up, and thinks there is a better spot across the room, and books it as fast as he can go (wow, they can run if they want to!) across the room, to change his mind and run back.

I bought a ball for him, but he can't figure it out- just sleeps in it. He loves his wheel though, so I am not sure what is up with that

Bruno will usually start finding a hiding place to go to bed, which is always my blanket or my shirt. He seems to be a VERY sleepy hedgie. He doesn't stay asleep for long periods..he will get out of the blanket wander around a little and come back. The when he smells meal worms he immediantly get up and eats them all up. Bruno used to poop and pee when i took him out but for the last couple weeks he hasn't had one accident on me..he goes in his litter box or on his wheel.

Re: What does your hedgie do when out of the cage?

Well i already posted what my hedgehog does but now he does different things so i have decided to post what he does now. Ok now i first wake him up which he does not like and always trys to go back to bed, once hes awake i scoop him up and place him in the play pen to go pee and poop instead of doing it on me. Sometimes he doesnt go to the bathroom and decides to go on me instead. Like yesterday i took him out put him in the play pen to do his buisness and he wouldnt go to the bathroom so i just took him downstairs, while downstairs he just slept for a while than woke up and i gave him a few mealies and dried bannanas. He than went back to bed for a while and i started feeling warmth on my leg and he peed on me. So i put him back in his cage gave him fresh food and water and he went to bed. Some days though he is more wild and runs around, all i know is when my hedgehog wants something theres nothing to stop him. Fabio is also in love with mealworms one time he almost bit my finger casue he thought it was a mealworm, its always kinda scary giving them to him cause he goes syco and tries to eat the container that i place the mealworm on. Another wierd thing is everythime i pick up his poop and pee he tries to eat the toilet paper he always tries chasing it so i have to kinda put my hand in front of his face so he doesnt eat it. My fabio is a little piggy.
