    Hedgie snoring. Mine squeak when they sleep. Haven't heard purring, but I would think it's the same thing. My last hedgehog screamed pretty loud in his sleep. Gave me a heart attack and he wasn't too happy when I woke him up to make sure he was ok. It's normal, and pretty freakin cute.

    Hedgies make noises--sometimes when they are exploring, they make really cute 'happy sounds' which sound like sniffing/purring/little squeeking sounds. Cant really describe it but I call it 'happy sounds'.

    Hope that helps.

    There is a sound called 'the hedgie scream of death' which can be quite terrifying to hear--it means that something is wrong and you need to check it out. It can be a true emergency or it can be an issue that your hedgie considers an emergency (like the wheel is not working)
