I am going tonight to see the hedgehog breeder I really hope everything works out as I am missing having a pet but my husband is a little upset at the initial cost :(
So has anyone else here got hedgies? Any tips for me tonight when I see them? Any tips in regards to housing, bedding, feeding etc? The breeders website and others have got me pretty much prepared but I would love some more first hand stories
I don't personally have one but back when I had guinea pigs and I was part of a guinea pig forum (guineapigcages.com, then the forum) there were a few people who had them (and were really really knowledgeable) and I was SO envious! Haha
I'm not sure if those people are still active or anything though because I haven't been active on that site in around 2 years.
If/when you get one I'd absolutely love to see pictures! =D
Edit: I don't know if you're inclined to rescue a hedgehog but there are hedgehog rescues out there that probably have babies, for a cheaper price than a breeder (most likely), and you'd be saying a life.
They are the cutest, sweetest, most adorable little creatures ever! Jonathan and I were there an hour snuggling with them. I loved it and my allergies weren't bothering me So after talking about it we are going to get one I hope we can get him this weekend, we need to get a home sorted, food and bedding etc first
Hedgies are illegal in Pa, unless you are a licensed breeder, or have a permit for rescue. I had a permit when I had my small animal rescue, and had one little guy come in for a few weeks. He ended up at a rescue center in New York, and was quickly adopted. They are such sweet little critters, I'd love to have one of my own!
