Maybe you're right, I'll keep on observing...
I was worried because she was digging so hard and wouldn't stop for a moment... )

The biting of the blanket could be a smell thing. They're very smell/taste oriented, and biting things with new/interesting smells is sometimes a response.
what can i do? Does that behavior implies she's nervouse?
she's digging between my lap now... i hope she can just quietly sleep on my lap like other people's hedgies...

Has anyone had this problem?

My hedgie is around 3 months old.
I've just got her for one week, so I'm trying to get her used to me.
Today when I put her on a blanket on my lap, she kept scratching the blanket and also she bit the blanket and drags it with mouth.
Does anyone know if this is normal?
