Cyndaquil and his sleeping

Over the past week I've been trying a few different things. Since I don't work I'm home pretty much all the time. I used to wait until around 5pm before id pull him out of his hedgie sack and place him in a folded up fleece blanket on my lap. But lately I've been pulling him into my lap not long after I wake up. It doesn't seem to bother him. In fact I think he prefers it over his cage. While he's sleeping in his cage he's all balled up, but when he's in my lap he stretches out, Splats, or sleeps on his back. If I place my hand in there with him he'll snuggle his face into and go to sleep lol. I love all this time we have together I just hope it's healthy for him. He loves his belly rubbed. He'll slowly start to roll over as I start to rub his side until he's on his back. Ive even found a few spots he seems to be ticklish. He'll start to kick his back leg once in awhile if I hit that spot.

Be careful using a leash and never trust it to hold him back. Because of the quills and the fact that hedgies can ball up, leashes cannot be put on tight enough and they can easily escape if they want. Also, if hedgie decides to quill up and/or go into a ball while wearing a leash the potential is there for injury as the leash becomes much tighter.
