Re: i love my new hedgie, will she ever love me?

Welcome to HHC! This is a very common issue with new hedgie owners. There's lots of wonderful info in the Behavior threads. But bottom line - it takes lots & lots of patience. Continue to hold her, but give her some place to hide, like a blanket, fleece or towel on your lap. Treats like mealworms or kibble also help. Make your movements slow & gentle. Celebrate the little victories, like when they unball in under 3 minutes.
Keep at it, be patient & consistent, read everything you can here. Hope it goes well!

i love my new hedgie, will she ever love me?

so yesterday i was giving a 1 year old hedge hog, she keeps jumping, snorting, biting, and balling! will this ever stop??...ive been doing all i can to get her used to my smell , but so far nothing but an upset sharp ball thing. so is there any ideas of what we can do to make her warm up to us even more??
