Sometimes I feel like a failed pet-owner because my hedgehog hates me. I try so hard to make her comfortable and feel safe, but she is just mad all the time. I try to hold her, talk to her, touch her and play with her outside her cage, but she just rolls into a ball, puffs up, and jumps at me. I’ve had her about 5 months, and she just seems to get worse. She was much nicer as a baby.
I feel so sad about it. Sometimes I think I should find someone that would be more suited to take care of hedgehogs even though I try so hard. :(
