How old is/was your oldest hedgie
 
Usually the common lifespan is 4-6 years, but I'm curious to know how old was/is the oldest hedgie you had. Litchi is about to turn 7 this December and the vet was quite surprise how well she is despite her age. I know she can be gone soon, I try to prepare for the worst now.

Yay for Litchi. I remember when you got her. Seems like a long time ago and I guess it was. :D

My oldest was just over 6. I've had numerous 5 year olds, but the majority seem to have passed in their late 4's.

Inky just turned 5 recently. :) Yay for Litchi! I'm so glad she's still doing well. :)

We've had two who made into their sixth year. Ruby only just, but Tumbles was nearly seven when she passed on.

My two oldest both past away at just under four, both from cancer. Seven is exceptional! That's is too cool!

I guess I should feel really lucky she was only sick twice and only just have cataracts (wich isn't a big deal anyway) and she's still here. Sometimes when I come feed her and I hear no noise from her, my heart stops! I check her pocket and she hisses at me and I'm happy (who would have tought I'd be happy about that!) I do hope she'll break some longevity records!
