Here are the kids, Mr Tweeds who is my little Tumbleweed, he loves to be held, Next is My Little Jamila my Albino Baby from HedgiePets she loves to also be held and is so very cute, Next is Snoball She is a five month old from Hedgie Pets and she never comes out of a ball and just growls, I have tried everything I want her to unroll so I can at least see her little face. I have cooked her Ground Turkey for 2 night now and she still will not eat. :roll:

Great pics!!! I love the one of Jamila sitting on the swing. That's so cute. :) Don't worry about Snoball; some babies take longer to adjust than others. My Lily was the same way when I got her, but she hadn't been handled by her own owner hardly at all. I got her to come around by just sitting with her. If I was still enough, she would eventually unball by herself and start poking around... she just couldn't help herself I guess. I think you'll find that Snoball's natural curiosity will get the best of her, too! ;)

Keep us posted on Snoball's progress, I hope she warms up to you soon.

Also, I love you for taking that little Texas Tumbleweed. God knows the poor things have had enough hardship already, they need loving homes like the one you're giving Mr Tweeds.

Hi every one All the hedgies are doing great except Snoball I do know she ate 5 pieces of kibble last night and some turkey, She is just not going to unroll for me. I have her sitting with me every evening talking gently while she growels at me :roll: My better half has decieded that Jamila and Mr Tweeds are his babies and Snoball is mine, If she never gets nice Ill just make sure everything in her world is good, however I hope for a sweet little Snoball :shock: I do feel blessed to have these little animals. Oh and they have their own Radio now set on a timer with the vita lights.

It may be her age. At 5 months think of puberty in human children and the way they can be. I've had numerous girls that went through a totally unsocial period at 4-6 months. Just keep handling her gently.

Another thought, does she react to the S sound? Some of them are really sensitive to certain sounds, S being one of them. For a long time I had to call our Smokey, Mokey because he reacted to S.

Aww, look at the little faaaace. ...What you can see of it, anyway. <3 Cutie.

Does she react at all to kissing noises? Sometimes Quillamina and Loki jump and get upset when I make that noise at them, so if you're doing that, maybe she doesn't like it. They seem to react adversely to a variety of sounds, must have sensitive little ears.
