    Dexter's Journal: Updated 8-3 with swimming and running pics!

    I'm getting him from a family that was fostering him until he could find a good home - I've wanted a hedgehog for ages, but they're not super common around here, though there are a couple of breeders in the state. However, I'm happy I get to rescue one instead.

    He's well socialized, just over a year old, and he's coming with a cage and all accessories. I'm getting him tomorrow morning, and I'll see what I need to buy myself then after I see what all his stuff is, and the condition it's in. I'll be sure to post pictures!

    I hope it turns out well.

    My mom bred them and they weren't nice. The parents weren't, nor were the fifth generation offspring. We handfed the babies and they were still biters....

    This guy is pretty playful and friendly - he's been socialized since he was a very small baby... I'm hoping things work out well.

    Re: I'm getting a hedgehog tomorrow!

    I certainly hope so!

    They are so cute when they are babies. It is cute enough when they roll in a ball and hiss at you (seriously!), but when they are babies and they roll into a ball --- that is just adorable!

    What is the normal diet for them now? 15 years ago, it was moistened cat food.

    Everything I've been reading is to feed a mix of multiple high-protien/low fat cat foods. I plan on mixing 2 or 3 different high-quality brands, supplementing mealworms/waxworms as occasional treats, and giving veggies and such as well.

    I don't mind mealworms too much - they'd only be an occasional treat. I might try freezedried wormies too, and see if he likes them, or if he's going to be picky and only like the live ones.

    Re: I'm getting a hedgehog tomorrow!

    My friend had two hedge hogs. They used to carry them in the Pet store around here but then they closed down and when the reopened they didn't sell them again. I think they are lovely. I've never been bit by one but they are very cute haha. I wanted one but not right now lol.

    Re: I'm getting a hedgehog tomorrow!

    They're cute little guys! I'd love to see pictures when you get him (I'm sure we all would!). I've always loved their little faces. Recently I did one of those dumb facebook quizzes which said my Patronus is a hedgehog. I'm wondering how an itty bitty hedgehog could protect me against a dementor??

    Re: I'm getting a hedgehog tomorrow!

    I had one when I was younger. I got him from some people who didn't care for him properly AT ALL and he wasn't socialized. I never really could hold him and I couldn't really provide for him properly (letting him out and cleaning was a bit too much for me), so I ended up rehoming him and to my knowledge he still lives with the person.

    I'd love to have one again though, if I could get a baby or one that was already friendly.
