How do you stop a hedgehog from pooping on you?

Asked by hedgehogluvr (8points) July 11th, 2010

Hi, I just got a hedgehog 3 days ago. I left her alone the first day and picked her up the second day and she pooped a runny, goopy, greenish poop on me. It’s only runny, green, and gross when she goes on me. (It’s normal in her cage) The pet store says she’s a baby. Is it normal? and how can I stop it?

My guess would be that the hedgehog is scared shitless when she is being picked up by a human and because she gets stressed she empties her bowels.

@rebbel lmao….

Yes, she is nervous….Sadie (my dog in my avatar) was that way for the first week. Now, she feels right at home!

My old dog has poop issues, but we still love each other madly!!!!
