Default "new pics 12/6" SC albino rescue hedgie is now home

EDIT: new pics added http://pets.webshots.com/album/57579523 ... vhost=pets

Mom and I drove up to the Clemson area to pick up the little rescue hedgie today. Hit a couple quilt stores on the way back. His name is Calvin Parker (Parker was his previous name)

The Craigslist ad has been taken down, but that picture was pretty accurate. She had him in a towel when she arrived so I'm hoping he got to sleep in that normally. I really didn't ask. She says the cage what was the breeder recommended. Does anyone know a breeder in Charlotte? I didn't remember the name.

I'd like to verify the age b/c he's tiny. He's supposed to be 9 months old. That's what the ad said. But he is reeaallly tiny. Ender is almost that old and was bigger than that when we picked him up. Sweet little thing. He did well in the car and with the shopping. Thank goodness for that snugglesafe disc and mom's willing to cuddle a hedgie in the car (not the whole trip)

I weighed him when we got home on my postal scale. 270 grams. He's eaten. She gave me his food and I put some in the cage in his bowl then mixed some cut up pieces of his and Ender's with some water. Mom checked, he ate that and ate some of the hard ones.

Oh, i do have a vet appointment for monday. i'm trying to find that breeder too.

Ok, enough rambling. Pictures below. Video will have to wait till I can upload at work.

Awww congrats on your new baby. I have one more spot in my heart and finances for a hedgie so I'm holding off for a rescue situation in my area.

He is gorgeous and a lucky little boy that you got him. 270 is nothing to worry about. I've had numerous adult males that size and smaller. In the one picture his sides look a bit skinny but it may just be the position he'es in. Congratulations and good for you for taking this boy in.

He ate more mushy crunchies last night, ran in his wheel (based on the poo) and did a lot of pooing near the wheel. Not to sure on his water intake so i'm going to give him a crock of water too.

He seems to have taken to the hedgie bag, he was still sleeping in it this morning and huffed up at me when I moved the igloo to make sure he was still breathing

Nancy, I do think he's skinny. I'm going to keep up with mushy crunchies for a while and see if he widens a bit.
