    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...

  6. 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...

    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...

    Hello Everyone! It took Prudence a few weeks to start using her wheel originally due to being overweight. She wheeled almost every night for almost six months and has recently stopped again. For the last two weeks she has wheeled only once, and it was barely touched. I am aware that changes in...

    One of my hedgehogs, Kiwi, has lately been very very grumpy when before he was one of the nicest out of his litter. He huffs like crazy whenever I go near his cage and isn't ever comfortable around me like he used to be, and he's pretty much the same way at night. He's almost seven months old so...
  12. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hello all, I desperately need some hedgehog help. I own 3 hedgehogs, 2 of which are pretty happy and friendly. However, my third hedgehog (Huffington J. Bean aka Bean for short) is very aggressive and bites. While I realize there are several reasons that hedgehogs bite, Bean basically bites...

    I recently started my cycle and ever since my girl has been a total butt to me. She typically loves cuddling on my chest, but lately she goes as far from me as I will allow and hisses at me constantly. Does anyone else ever have this problem or is she just in a mood at the moment?

  15. Hibernation
    When I went to get my hedgehog Pip tonight, I noticed the spot she was in felt a little colder than usual. She was all balled up and didn't come out after I picked her up, so I was worried that she was too cold and warmed her up by holding her on a heating pad for half an hour. After a while she...
