I wrote in a long time ago. Since then me and my hedgehog Bucky have grown closer together. She knows my scent and is not scared anymore when I pick her up. She really likes to run around in her play-pen. If you have a hedgehog that likes to get up and run around you should really look into getting one. She likes to run around in her ball to, But when she really starts to run she has "accidents"! What I want to say is that I dont think you could get a cooler pet.

I just got my hegdehog yesterday, and its been great! It is a female. its name is Bucky. It hardly ever rolls into a ball and it is so energetic. Its about 5 weeks old. I made its own cage. It loves to hide in its tunnel. I have never had a hedgehog before but i think they are the greatest pet anyone could ever have! It is a salt and pepper color. For all you hedgehog lovers out there I have to say you guys have excellent taste. By the way I got her at animal city. Another thing she was 100.00 bucks!

I just got my male hedgie today at 8:00. It was a birthday present from my parents. His name is chester. He is such a wonderful pet and is pretty friendly already after about an hour. He makes weird clicking noises. He is about a year old and he was $120.99.

Hi, I run an animal santuary in England and keep 4 hedgehogs (2 male and 2 female) in what used to be my utility room. I have partioned the room off into four parts so they are all kept individually. They are all relatively timid but do not mind handiling. You have to handle them gently as they are delicate. They each have a bird house to sleep in and it has hay in it.
Mine get active at around five to eight in the evening, they are very playful. I made them each a wooden wheel which they enjoy. I feed them on dry cat food and water with a little bit of kitten milk in.
They are taken to the vets on a regular basis (I have had no health problems with them yet) along with all my other animals.

I work at a pet store and our hedgehog loves Tender Vittles for cats. The odor is stinky but not unbearable. Just a little thought in case you would like to try it...!!!!!
