    So my girlfriend and I left the apartment tonight and accidentally left one of the lights on. We got back around 3 am and my hedgehog was in his tunnel makeshift semi-tunnel. He usually is running on the wheel and active at this hour, so I lift the tunnel to check on him. He suddenly starts...
  2. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    So something strange happened today. I'm just going to prefix this by saying that Prudence has never hissed, popped, or been particularly grumpy. Ever. At least until today. So at 9:00 (our usual bonding time) I went to go take Prudence out of her cage and found her with her crinkly cat toy in...

    I think oil really freaks Tema out, but I have no idea why. Whenever I bring it near her she balls up tightly and goes on full defensive. This happens with baby oil, and coconut oil. So far, she's fine with the flaxseed oil in her food. But whenever I use oil in the bathing water (baby oil or...

    My hedgehog Quillie is 7 months old and she has always been a very social hedgehog. I've never had an issues picking her up or holding her before and after she had babies. Yesterday I tried picking her up to give her some medicine ( the boys have mites so the vet wanted all 4 of my hedges to...
  5. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I have had my baby hedgehog for 3 months now, she is about 5 months old. I have bonded with her and she is very sweet and social. I thought I was lucky to have such a loving hedgie, but lately she's being more grumpy and biting everything. She was quilling but has recently stopped. She started...

    My hedgehog is roughly 6 months old and seems to be quite healthy. Over the past several weeks he has developed the habit of biting me. This wouldn't be a big problem except he bites very hard. It hurts a lot and if I don't get him to stop soon, he breaks the skin. I have switched soap and I...

    So I always seem to pop up in the forum only when there's trouble but I need some advice. Luna is about a year and a half old now. Her breeder says her mum and dad were both a bit lazy and slept more than usual, so that makes since- not as worried about that. But its like she fights me when I...

    My partner and I adopted a 2 year old hedgehog about a month ago. She was part of a USDA certified breeding program, but turned out to be an unreliable mom. When we met her, she was cuddly, snuggly, and seemed genuinely comfortable being held (quills down, relaxed forehead, etc.) We've had her...

    Hi everyone! I'm a new hedgehog owner. I got him about 2 weeks ago from a guy who didn't give him a lot of attention (he's about 7 or 8 months old). The first week went well, I did the t-shirt trick and I picked him up twice a day for a half an hour each time. He rolled into a ball when I picked...
  10. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I got my hedgie about a year ago when I lived in an apartment. She was really friendly.... I could hold her by her scruff, clip nails, pet and nap with her no problem. I moved back home to my moms house. There is a house cat and a house dog. I keep her in the spare bedroom where the other...
  11. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    During the day, our Briar is cuddly and sweet. He's active, enjoys petting and treats. But if we try to take him out during the night he rolls up and hisses and pops and makes a big deal of "I'm under attack!!" Is this him just saying "leave me alone, mom. I just want to play on my wheel!"?

    Hi, so my little Charlie's just a little over a year now (I got her when she was 8 months old) and at the beggining we were doing very well, never got bit and calmed down pretty fast. A few weeks ago I went to pick her up and she bit me hard. I've been nervous ever since and slowly trying to...

  14. Grooming
    Clu usually is fine with baths, he will try to run out of the sink but is unsuccessful, but he is usually fine after a bath, even tries to help dry off after! Today I gave him a bath like usual and when I did the rinse I added half a capsule of flax seed oil into his water because I read it was...

    Today i had my hedgie out for a little play and when i went to put her back in her cage she curled into a ball and continued to hiss loudly and it scared the life out of me!!! so i put a worm in front of her and she ate it and went into her hut, i have one theory to why she did it i put a new...

    So I guess Oliver is 12 weeks old today. He's normally super friendly, he kisses & cuddles & he handles other people holding him pretty well. I live half time at my Mom's & half at my Dad's,he seems to be a lot more comfortable at my dad's but he normally adjusts at my Mom's by the end of the...
