is a very tame, even tempered hedgehog who enjoys being
cuddled. He makes very endearing snuffling noises while you are
holding him, which I believe is his attempt to communicate. Besides
sleeping, his favorite activity would be "tubing" (running
with a toilet paper tube firmly stuck on his head). While some
question his intelligence while observing this behavior, keep in mind
that the pampered little fellow has a nice home, room and maid
service and a "harem" of three female hedgehogs. Perhaps he
is pretty smart after all! Velcro also enjoys surfing the internet
and bestows his "Princely Pog Award" to worthy pet sites.
Velcro lives with our family along with five other adult
hedgehogs and two new babies (not his). Velcro is a cuddler but alas
not a breeder. If a hedgehog is tame, they lay their quills down flat
and may be handled without gloves. Each has their own personality. Velcro
is the only one of mine that attempts to communicate and show
affection by making the little snuffling noises when you hold him -
very similar to a cat purring, but more of a nasal sound. He has
never had "an accident" when anyone was holding him either.
Velcro loves to be petted and will sit still for as long as you want
to hold him and will go to sleep in my lap if I'm watching a movie or
working on the computer.
Velcro is a very sweet tempered, loving pet. He has his own
