Our hedgie gus gus doesn't seem to hiss at us and does not seem to sleep in a ball much. Hessleep in a ball at first but now he seems to sleep on his side more often in only a half ball? We have only had him about a week.
He doesn't seem lethargic we made a little hedgie area in the front room so that he is safe but he can hang out with us he runs all over the place. We just thought they would be kinda grumpy but maybe that happens more when they get older.
