Hi guys, i'm a new mother to a little hoglet. When we first got her, she did no mind being picked up or played with...but she had very dry skin so we took her to the vet (which was a terrible experience). From this point on, she will NOT let you pick her up, she never comes un-prickly and doesn't want to be around anyone. We try to hold her everynight as scheduled, but she wont have it.
Is there anything i can do?

we have used the shirt idea several times, and wash her liners with out same detergents too. not much luck, especially because she refuses to litter train :cry:
we do use a shirt to initially bring her out of her cage, if you try to scoop her up, she will roll around your hand (i have small hands) and it is a bit painful. she will also shove her shoulders outward while rolled up, so that you get poked (this accompanies a bark or two usually).
Where are you located in WV?
We are students at WVU, and would love to meet other hedgie parents! :roll:
