Bathing question

I gave my baby Sonic a bath yesterday and after I made sure he was dry and gave him some mealies I placed him back in his cage and this was around 2 AM. For some reason he seemed to not want to play very much for the rest of the night and just slept and ate his food because this afternoon when I went to check on him is wheel was almost as clean as when I put it in there.

I was just wondering if other people have similar experiences after they give their hedgies baths? Are they just so tired after all the running around trying to escape or was he just sleeping a lot because he's still just a baby?

It's very likely that the bath tired him out.

I usually give my boy a bath a bit earlier in the evening, around 7pm, and he'll be passed out on my lap for hours(perfect opportunity to trim nails :lol: )

So perhaps next time, try to bath a little earlier in the evening, so that he's not completely tired out to come out and play at night. ^_^

Also, keep an eye on his activity level and how much he eats for the next few days, but if all goes back to normal, then he probably just got really tired.
