yes i no i have only had charlie since friday, but he wont come out of his bed untill the room is quite and dark,, :( ,,
i came down stairs at 3oclock this morning, came into romm (didnt put any lights on) and he ran into the corner of his cage hiding,, :( ,
i spoke to him and then went back to bed,
i have had him out of his cage at t.time but he just wants to curl up and sleep, :(
he is only 8 weeks old and i no babys need there sleep, but is there anything else i can do to encourage him out of his bed?? or am i doing the right thing and just have to persevere??

just had a thought!!!! charlies bed is a wooden hut with a fleecy blanket in it so he is constantly in the dark!!!
maybe i should use something diffrent for his bed so he does get to see daylight??(if you no what i mean)

what does anyone recomend?? :?

I just got my Albino Hedgie about a week ago, and he too, hasn't come out unless it's been sufficently dark in the room, and he runs back and hides as soon as he sees me spying on him. :)

I think that's a fairly normal response, and depending on how old your Hedgie is, he might just be sleeping alot because babies need a lot of sleep!

I have only seen Melchior's ( My Hedgie's ) face once, and that was when he sniffed me from a few inches away, then went back to the corner of his hiding place. He is still very afraid when I try to come close to him.
