How come my hedgehog doesn't like water?
Are hedgehogs interactive or are they one of those just watch me pets? I'm wanting to hear from those who have them or have had them. Can you play and cuddle with them? Are they high maintenance like my ferrets were?

Quillie Nelson is an 8 month old Hedgehog. I got him March 2010. He likes to stick his nose in the grass and forage for food.
Hedgehogs are thrifty pets. They seldom need vet care and don't cause allergic reactions in most people. Hedgehog chow is inexpensive. All of our pets are "recycled" -that is they come from shelters. Never underestimate the joy given by our smaller friends.
