Possible future hedgie owner
This has been such a wonderful place to learn about hedgies! I have been thinking about getting one for some time now and have been pouring through every post possible. The only negative is that the closest breeder is 4-5 hour away! But my husband and I will be visiting friends this weekend and I have made arrangements to visit a local breeder there. This will be our first "real life" experience with a hedgehog. I felt it was important to see and experience them in real life before making our final decision. I have to tell you, though, I already have a list of names. And a portable heater. And a travel carrier. And an order in from that worm guy. I know it's a bit silly, but I figured you would understand.

Hey, welcome to HHC! Great to hear you're doing your research. :D Hope seeing your first hedgie in person goes well and that everything goes well if you decide to commit to one!

Let us know if you have any questions :)

Absolutely! I'm a research kind of gal! This is a big commitment. (Second only to my marriage!) :lol: And I've kept him for 18 years! I figure, all 3 of us (hubby, hedgie & me) want to be happy. The best way to do that is to know what you are getting into BEFOREHAND.

You all have been such a help. I have appreciated all the frank, honest info you have provided. And the pictures! It's so great when you don't know what you are doing to be able to feel like you have an IDEA of what you are doing! I can look at something and say "yes, I KNOW this will work and will be safe, because I have seen a picture of it."

Anyway, you guys have been great. Feel like I know you already - because I've read all your responses. BTW Lizardgirl, I love your picture!
