This is adorable and inspiriting. I want to take Hedgeums to explore the great outdoors now too. How old is Caroline and how long have you had her? My Hedgeums is an explorer but also a runner and I am so concerned that he would keep running away and never come back to me (It looked like Caroline returned to you fairly quickly).
If a hedgie were to run away from you outside, how difficult is it to catch him/her?
hedgies run pretty darn fast, as you can see. so you would have to be very careful and maybe have two people watching. but you also have to make sure wherever you take them there isint and pestisides, or other hamful cemicals around. and also there could be large birds such as hawks around, which would pose a great danger for little hedgies.
I always have a least one other person with me to make sure she doesn't get into any trouble. There are a lot of things that you have to look out for as well, like dogs, if there was a dog anywhere around I wouldn't have let Coraline run around. Normally whenever she has had her feel of running she comes back and snuggles up against me to rest.
