Hi, I have a hedgehog who was 7 weeks when I got her and I have now had her for 4.5 months. However, I still can't get her to like me, or be comfortable around me! She's very active and healthy at nighttime when nobody is nearby. But the second I try to pick her up, she jumps and gets hissy. After about 10 min, she calms down on my lap and I can pet her and she is ok with that. But if I leave her alone for even a second, it takes another 10 min to get her to stop jumping and hissing again. When she's in her playpen, she goes under the fleece and hides and won't come out. The worst part is, SHE BITES! I use a non-scented anti-bacterial soap and she bites me every night. Yes, I have tried switching to another non-scented soap. I usually bond with her for 30-90 minutes about 6 times a week. I don't want to give up on her but I am starting to lose my patience! Help!
