Default Decision

Hi, so someone moved into my house a month or so after my hamster died of natural causes. I built a 5x1 foot cage for her out of wood and plexiglass (rodent safe wood) and I have just gotten it ready for a new hamster when I can continue to provide for it (I’m only 16 and just got a job a few months ago) when the person moved in she had a hedgehog named Dobby who wasn’t the most loved for a good 6 months of his life but was given a better home with the person. Dobby has a pretty small cage, only 1x2’ at the max. I offered to let Dobby have my cage and she could keep him up there with it. The problem is the cage is too big for her room. She offered to let me keep Dobby with me in my room. My problem is I’ve only owned and taken care of a hamster and I don’t know if the person is the best with animals as far as all of the major things go so I don’t know if I can rely on her. I wanted some advice on if I should take care of Dobby, because if he’s in my room he’s my responsibility. I don’t know if any of you can help me with this problem but any advice would be appreciated. (If I don’t take Dobby the cage will be used for another hamster)

I would do your research and decide if having a hedgehog sounds like something you would enjoy. There's lots of good threads on the forum discussing behavior, care, health and diet. Spend some time reading and then if you have specific questions please ask. But make sure you understand what you're getting into before jumping in. Hedgehogs aren't great pets for everybody, but they're great pets for the right people.
