can you be allergic to hedgies? I've wanted a hedgie for a long time, and instead got a couple birds, but my interest in a hedgehog hasn't waned. Nobody around here sells hedgies that I've found, and I don't want to drive for a few hours just to shove one in my face and find out I'm allergic! Anybody ever have any allergy issues? I'm allergic to almost everything else... not dogs though unless they're pretty dirty.

Well, hedgehogs have fur, so unfortunately yes you could be allergic to them. I had trouble breathing, but alot of that had to do with their bedding (dusty) and it was better when they were on liners. I also got hives and itching on my hands where the quills would poke me when holding them. It took a few years for me to develop that allergy, it did not happen right away.
