There are pros and cons to everything in life and sleeping with a hedgehog is no different. If you’re thinking about letting your hedgehog share your bed, here are some things to consider.
On the plus side, hedgehogs are small and relatively quiet. They’re also generally clean animals and won’t track dirt and mud into your bed. And, if you’re lucky, your hedgehog may even curl up against you and provide a bit of warmth on chilly nights.
On the downside, hedgehogs can be prickly and their quills can be sharp. If your hedgehog isn’t accustomed to being handled, he may not take kindly to being held or cuddled. Additionally, hedgehogs are nocturnal animals and may keep you awake at night with their activity.
So, what’s the verdict? Whether or not sleeping with a hedgehog is right for you is a personal decision. If you’re willing to put up with a few potential downsides, sharing your bed with a hedgehog can be a unique and rewarding experience.
