Default Update on rescue *vet apt update!*

Hello all,

Wanted to give an update on the rescue I took in yesterday evening from FiaSpice (from her friend more precisely) see here here and here for full backstory.

Little girl is settling in well and is doing better than I had anticipated. I didn't handle her much yesterday because I wanted to give her quiet time to adapt to her new surroundings after putting down some clean liners and accessories in her bin. She came out for a bit in the late evening to sniff her new digs and munch on some food, I'm also happy to report no signs of diarrhea so far, all poops were normal.

When I handled her yesterday she wasn't much fuss and so far seems to have quite a sweet disposition. I got her out tonight for a bit longer and snapped some pics of her lump. She huffed often but never raised her quills and wasn't too squirmy considering.

The lump is a bit more mobile than I had first thought but seems to protrude more than what I had seen yesterday. I hope the fact that it's more mobile is a good sign. She doesn't seem to be much affected by the lump from what I've seen and seems normally active.

I have an appointment for her at my vet's Saturday morning, I'm looking forward to seeing what she will say after seeing Little girl. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she has decent chances with a surgery, if the prognosis is fairly good, I'm most likely going to have her fully treated. It's hard not to seeing how cute and sweet she is!

I'm a total sucker for an animal in need

Without further ado, here are some pics of Little girl and her lump.









I'm currently referring to her as Little Girl as I want to give her a new name with her new chance. I'm just short of ideas right now lol! Actually, I call her "foofer" like I do my two other hedgies (Kiwi and Stella), I just can't help it, they're too cute when they huff and puff the first few seconds when I pick them up, Little Girl is the same. A sweet little foofer!

Name ideas are most welcome, I love the last pic of little girl on this post with her funny face Poor thing, I'm sure the last thing she wanted was for me to expose her like that, nevermind taking pictures of her in such a compromised position!

Will keep updating!

"Ahava" is a Hebrew name meaning "cherished one." This little girl is surely cherished by this entire community and by you who moved mountains to give her a second chance.

"Chava" is the Hebrew name meaning "life." Well, is there a name more appropriate?

Anny, you are truly an absolutely amazing person. I cried when I first read the post about this Little Girl's situation. I have no doubt that the lov you give this girl, will fill her and give her the strength to recover!

I'm so happy to hear she's doing fine despise her situation and that dihareha is gone. I'm so relieved she's with someone that cares about her. I'm a sucker for rescue too, my new guy is from the SPCA. One day If I won the lottery, I'd love to rescue every hedgie in need in the area.

As for name that's great idea to give her a new name for a new chance. LyzziFall had good suggestion... maybe Lucky?

What a gorgeous little girl.

Anny you are a wonderful person. It's so nice to see you giving her a chance and its so nice to know she's in great hands and a loving home now. I really hope she makes better progress, and congrats on your new baby

I think a name like Faith would be great for her, as it symbolizes everything about the situation and about you

You're a star Anny.

She is beautiful and obviously a very nice little girl. I hope there is good news at the vet and the tumour can be removed easily. Sending lots of prayers for her.

Here's to hoping that she will get better.
