Knowledgeable about hedgehogs – the more you know about hedgehogs the better you will understand them and be able to meet their needs

Patient – hedgehogs are shy by nature and will depend on your patience as they learn to trust you.

Thick skinned – hedgehogs are prickly and they can poke you! This is something you can learn but hedgies are certainly not for you if you are afraid of getting spiked or bit.

Gentle – you must be gentle with hedgehogs if they are going to trust you.

Observant – your hedgehog is going to depend on you 100% for their needs. You will need to recognize its needs and its subtle ways of communicating.

Financially responsible – hedgehogs aren’t cheap and they are most likely to require veterinary care at some point in their life as well as food and supplies throughout their life.

Accepting – You must be willing to accept what your hedgehog has to offer. It will most likely never follow commands or do tricks but its quirky habits and the affection it may share can make it quite charming.
