  1. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hi all! My hog Chu is just over 1 year old, and there's been several changes in her behaviour in the last ~3 months or so that I'm starting to get concerned about. 1. Poopin' habits: somehow I randomly got a hog that took to a litter box almost instantly and rarely pooped anywhere except in...
  2. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I got Oliver about a month ago. He's two years old and when he lived with his old owners, his cage was two cages connected by a tube. I guess he was very difficult to get out of the tube and would usually be hiding in it. When I first got him, he was very scared all the time. He's not scared...
  3. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I have had a little hedgie for about 2 months, and she's about 4 months old. I've been allowing her to sleep in my pockets or against me, especially when my sweaters don't have pockets or I'm just wearing a shirt. I'm usually lying down during this time. So tonight I put her under my shirt and...
  4. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    My boyfriend has had his hedgehog for 7months now since she was a hoglet. He cares for her like crazy and lives and reads every comment on these forums. Taya has progressively become more and more anxious. She constantly huffs and puffs and takes a very long time to uncurl and it is only...
  5. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I recently got a baby hedgehog and he started off so friendly. Though he was nervous at first he very quickly warmed up to me and was wonderful about running all over my arms and hands, or cuddling when I was just doing something else or watching tv. Recently he has become increasingly grumpy...

  7. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Ive had my hedgehog for a little more than a month now. When i first got him the owners admitted he was a bit grumpy and weren't able to bond with him but as soon as i picked him up he didn't fight it, he just let me and the owners were quite surprised. He's been pretty good around me but...

    Hello, I was hoping someone could help me. I just got my little hedgy a few weeks ago. As to my understanding, the previous owner has had this hedgehog since birth. When I went to pick him up, he had a cage obviously way too small for him and no toys. He is a year and a half old. I make sure I...

    My boyfriend bought me our first hedgie, Winnie, about a month and a half ago. Since then she's become a lot more friendly - much less hissing and puffing up in a ball when we touch/hold her, although I still have to pick her up with a jumper initially as she refuses to let me scoop her up...
  10. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I recently went on vacation for a few days. I had my hedgehog stay with a friend for a few days (Friday afternoon - Monday afternoon.) My hedgie was always extremely well tempered, from what I have heard about them, this is my first hedgehog. I have had him for about four months, but within...
  11. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I just picked up a 1 year old male hedgehog today, since I brought him home he's been breathing quickly and doing a little jump thing constantly... He's slept a bit but I'm still a little worried... Is this something I should look deeper into? Or is it just the stress of moving?
  12. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I'm a new hedgie owner, i have had Arasu for about month now and I'm getting used to things with him. Every week I clean his cage out and give him a bath but as soon as I put him back into his clean cage he will start to anoint. He will start licking the walls of his cage and regurgitating up a...

    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...
