"I live in the Highlands of Scotland and there are always lots of lovely wee wild hedgehogs in my garden every year. I just adore them and not being able to keep a wild one, I went and got an African Pygmy Hedgehog from a rescue organisation for exotic animals. He had been handed in after being removed from a horrible home. He was covered in mites, had lost part of his rear, right foot and was very unhappy and unsettled. I'm happy to say that three months after I got him home to my house he's doing great! I actually have him curled up asleep in my lap as I type! I just love having him and although hedgehogs aren't as affectionate as a dog, they do respond to kindness and consistent handling. I'm so happy that I can see such a big change in Harry's personality - he doesn't huff or ball up anymore and he stretches out and snuggles into the warmth of my body. I have 3 kids who adore him too and being in the Highlands, there aren't too many folk who have one of these wee guys so it's a bit of a novelty to the kids too. I have cows and dogs too and I love all animals but Harry is special because of his background and the change in him."
