  1. General Questions
    Anybody else suffer with really bad health anxiety revolving their hedgehogs? My previous pet passed away very suddenly in my arms and it has caused me to spiral with my new hedgehogs. Ive had them for about a year and been to the vet many of times, and spent probably around $1000, and only one...
  2. Skin
    So I got my first hedgehog, Biggie Smalls, about a month ago as a rescue from an animal shelter. She is a little over two years old and came with some minor health problems (ie. dry skin with no mites, chipped teeth, slightly over weight). About a week or two after adopting her, she started to...
  3. Off Topic
    The night before I went to get Mohawk I had a fierce panic attack. I hadn't had one of these since my high school finals. I woke up in the middle of the night, crying and went to the bathroom. I asked myself if I could handle the responsibility to take care of a living thing and the response was...
  4. General Questions
    Hello! So I've had my hedgie, Pillip, for 2 months and he was born 6/7/15 (so he's 4 months old). I have anxiety issues, and I would just like my worries to be calmed! First off, I have a CHE bulb, but it doesn't spread eat very evenly to my liking, so I decided to use a ceramic space (room?)...
  5. Hibernation

  6. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I got my hedgehog, Polly, from a coworker about two months ago. But she's having a hard time warming up to my fiancee and I. Any time we try to touch her, she starts hissing and curls up. I know my coworker didn't spend a lot of time with her, but I've had her out for at least an hour every...
  7. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    What are signs of a hedgie being stressed or anxious? My little one has been acting SO weird recently. She fidgets like crazy and bites absolutely everything and anything around her (including me... all the time). She never sits still anymore when I hold her in my bare hands, in her sleeping...
  8. Travel
    I have a very skittish Hedgie, he's blind, has been mistreated by his first owner who knew NOTHING of hedgies and their needs (despite technically being a pet store) and is naturally just skittish all around. I tried putting him in a small animal travel carrier that is a comfortable size for him...
