Boogs took Nebraska out to the backyard hammock for some bonding time. Hedgehogs are supposed to have about an hour a day of bonding time with their humans. Boogs used the blue towel to protect himself from poop. Luckily, Nebraska was not a poop machine that day.
Having a hedgehog is more involved than having a hamster. Nail care has been a bit of an issue for us. I have not been able to trim Nebraska's nails. I have tried many times and I even took him to the vet to have them teach me how to do it. Nebraska was not cooperative with them either. They had to give him a mild sedative in order to trim his nails. We have to go back each time to get his nails trimmed. We have tried several different exercise wheels and finally found that the Flying Saucer Wheel works best for Nebraska. Hedgehogs have very delicate feet. They should not walk on any kind of wire mesh.
We are really enjoying our newest family member.
