  1. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I know all Hedgehog personalities differ, but I have had Lily for 6 months and every time I take her out it's like the same process and she never gets acclimated: she spends all her time huffing, absolutely despises my presence and tries endlessly to get away back toward her enclosure (I let her...

    Hi I'm new to this forum but I've had hedgehogs as pets for 5 years now. I've recently brought home a little girl called Penelope and for the first three weeks she was perfect. She wasn't scared of anything and warmed up to me really quickly. I was so surprised by this as my other hogs took a...

    Hi there, I am new here and this is really my last ditch effort before spending a lot of money going to the vet. I have a female hedgehog named Nina, she is about 8 months old now and I am growing increasingly concerned. About a month or so ago, I noticed that she started to get dry skin. I...

    Hi, My hedgie is about 7 weeks old. He never curls in a ball when I pick him up but will do the occasional hissing if startled. Once he has settled down on my lap, usually in some fleece, he will start huffing sometimes before he naps. It sounds like numerous hard exhales where his whole body...

    Hello, Forgive me for my long message but I have a few questions that have been percolating in my mind. My hedgehog's name is Chuck and I got her August 28th around 6 weeks old (by my calculation she was born mid-July). I was reading on the this site that hedgehogs typically get their adult...

    I'm a new hedgehog owner, though I have babysat some hedgehogs before. I bought my dear Rupert from Kijiji. He was originally a rescue, and his last owner didn't have enough time to look after his needs and give him enough bonding time. As such, he's very huffy. I know this will take time and we...

    Hello, I'm a new hedgehog owner and bought my hedgehog a week ago. The girl I bought it from bought it from a breeder and then had it for a year- but admitted to neglecting him a bit after a couple months... so he's not had much interaction with people since he was a baby. Whenever I move, even...

    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...

    I've read some ways to bond, and I have a bonding pouch. Currently she is in it and on my lap, but she keeps huffing, every slight movement I make, and even when I'm not moving her quills are erect. I can't tell if its the scent or what may be making her freak out. I don't know how else to bond...
  11. 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...

    So Sonic is my 8 month old girl, and she's always been a little huffy, but has gotten over it quick, like once she realized she was outside her cage and the was something to explore. About me: I got her to help my depression that I got after a nasty car accident a little over a year ago... Was...

    I got Wally, my 8-month-old boy, three weeks ago today. He hadn't received much attention, no bonding time, and his cage, besides being way too small, lacked any kind of stimulation. He was housed on newspaper and did not have an igloo or any kind of hiding place other than an over-sized stuffed...

    Hi, I'm new here, and relatively new to hedgehog ownership! I thought I'd give a shot at making a forum post in hopes of getting some answers/ suggestion/ tips as to what I should do. So! I've had my hedgehog since the first Sunday of this most recent April (of 2014) and it seems I've made...
  17. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I got a year old hedgehog almost a week ago. She still huffs around me. But occasionally she will smell me and rub on my hand. But if I let her she buffs and points out her quills. Will I ever be able to hold her? How do i work up to doing this? I already have a pair of my worn shorts in her...
