i have read that female hedgies don't go into heat unless exposed to a male. My question is to what level of exposure before she goes into heat? Is it just direct contact, same room, same house? the reason i ask is right now my gf and i do not live together and Dora lives with her full time and comes over some weekends when my girlfriend stays the night. I am looking at getting a rescue that is a male and we don't want Dora to go into heat, so how far does the new little guy need to be kept away from her to keep it from happening?
