I have a very skittish Hedgie, he's blind, has been mistreated by his first owner who knew NOTHING of hedgies and their needs (despite technically being a pet store) and is naturally just skittish all around. I tried putting him in a small animal travel carrier that is a comfortable size for him and he freaked out, started huffing and repeatedly bashing the side of the carrier with his head. I have no idea why he reacted like this (possibly he doesn't like confined spaces? He was in a tiny cage before I took him home) and I really need to know a safe way to take him places with me. For the past few trips I've had to literally just hold him swaddled in a towel on my lap (where he slept peacefully and happy) which makes me terrified as I've been in pretty nasty wrecks and I know for a fact I couldn't keep hold of him like that if we wrecked. I want to travel him with me and I am at a complete loss, he can't keep bashing the carrier it will hurt him..... Anyone have any ideas?
