When you're planning to go on vacation it can be very difficult to find someone to take care of your pets while you're gone and some of you might not want to leave them with someone else. This is especially a problem with hedgehogs, because they're very sensitive and naturally shy, little animals. What's special about them is that they get very used to their owner and remain super shy towards everyone else. Many you know this, which is why I've been getting a lot of requests to write a blog post on this topic and to explain how I travel with my hedgehog. Traveling with Pokee started when I decided to go abroad for a semester. At that point Pokee was already super tame and used to me but generally shy towards others. Leaving him with my family or a friend for 5 months was never an option for me. Which is why I needed to take him with me, yet I had to figure out a way to provide similar housing without having to bring all his heavy equipment.
