My hedgie has always been very timid. When i first picked her out she wouldnt be afraid and run around, but since i brought her home she is shy. I know its normal for hedgehogs to be shy and timid but is there anything i can do to get her to be more social? I have tried holding her and taking her with me as i would watch tv or relax about once a day, but she still never wants me to get her out of her cage. What else can I do to help become more social? :(

I dont know about that. Neither of my hedgies will eat meal worms.

Mine were like that when they first got here and I just kept holding them and talking to them and let them sleep with a shirt that had my sent on it and they are getting much better. Give it time Im sure Skittle will come around

I've tried the mealworms and she never showed that she likes them. I guess I will just keep trying your advice and hopefully she will come out of it

some people have cut the mealies in half to let their hedgehog's smell the guts to persuade them to eat them. try that!
