Hello, I am new to this forum. I rescued my hedgie, Quillie (neutered female) in March of this year. According to the previous owners, she was approximately 1 year old and had been passed around from home to home because she is antisocial. I am absolutely sure that most of the reason she is so antisocial is because awful people just passed her around like she was a piece of meat and gave her no attention. Even the couple I got her from did not have a wheel for her or any form of exercise. Upon getting her, I immediately got her a hedgie-safe wheel, which she began using (and pooping on) nightly. Instead of a cage, I purchased a kiddie pool, and I just line it with puppy pads and switch them out daily. She is litter trained, but did not bother with using the litter until the past month or so. From the day we got her, she has not made much progress socially, but I was prepared for that. She seems happiest if we leave her alone, but I still try to force her to sit with me for at least an hour a night, or I sit with her in her room (we have a room for her that we keep at least 77 degrees and it is always quiet and dark at night) and let her run around and climb on me. I am past the point of wondering how to get her to be more affectionate; I think her previous owners did too much damage. Now I just want her to live a happy life. However, in the past couple of weeks, she has completely stopped using her wheel, and this scares me very much. She looks like she walks normally, and I've checked her every day to make sure nothing was wrapped around her legs, but she seems fine. She LOVED her wheel, and now she does not go on it at all; we have even set up a video camera to see if we can catch her doing it, and she does not get on it. We also had a very large hamster ball that she loved rolling around the house in, and now she refuses to move when she is in it, and instead will roll toward me and stretch out pathetically, almost like she is begging me to let her out (so of course I immediately let her out and I have not put her back in). I am scared to death that she is exhibiting the early signs of WHS. I live in an area that does not have a vet that sees hedgehogs specifically, so I am freaking out. She is also eating less, but not drinking less from what I can tell. I know that I can't make her happy by cuddling her, or anything like what my instincts tell me to do, so I'm desperate for suggestions on how to help her start exercising again, be happier, etc. Sorry if this post is too long. Thank you!
