Re: Help!

You just have to be persistent. If you leave her alone when she huffs up then she thinks that she has scared you off because she is so fearsome...you have to go ahead and handle her anyway, most of the time a grumpy hedgie will come around, you just have to let them get used to your scent and learn that you are friend not foe. One trick is to get a bonding sack and let her sleep in it on you so she get used to your smell. You can also "bribe" her with a big juicy mealie or two. At any rate, just hang in there and while she may never be a cuddler, she will most likely eventually let you handle her without much fuss....Best of luck
