Congratulations Alexandraboo!!! Walter seems like a sweet hedgie. My Sonic( or Gonk) is still a grumply ball of spikes sometimes. But, I figured that he would uncurl and stop hissing once he figures out that even if he hisses at me he still ends on my palm no matter what. Sonic tends to like crawling from my hand to my other hand. You are so right about them falling off things. Sonic likes walking and exploring on my hand that I have to quickly catch him everytime because he doesn't seem to mind falling off my hands. He is such an explorer. Anyway, I'm pretty sure Walter will become more and more of sweetheart as he gets to know you. What's his color? My sonic is an Albino. You should post some pics! I would love to see Walter! Keep us posted!
