I’ve had Beatrix for a few weeks, and it’s now safe to say I’m obsessed with her.
She enjoys burrowing into my clothing, climbing me, and trying to nest in my hair.
Her favorite activities are running on her wheel, eating mealworms, and burrowing under towels. She also likes cuddling in the crook of my arm after her bath.
Hedgehogs are odd pets, though. They haven’t been domesticated for very long, so they’re naturally cautious of humans. Although Beatrix is becoming more comfortable around me, she still gets scared and often rolls herself into a ball, Sonic-the-hedgehog-style.
