Potential New Owner Doing Research
I'm thinking about getting a hedgehog so I'm trying to find out as much as I can before making the commitment.
I'm a college student living in a building that allows small animals in a state where hedgehogs are legal.
I have had small animals as pets before and I understand the time, responsibility, and heart that goes into owning a pet. This is not a fad purchase. I have thought about this for years but I lived in a state where hedgehogs were not legal. (I live in a legal state full time now)
My main concern is expenses. I need to know how much it will cost to properly care for the hedgehog. Let's say... per month. How much will I be spending?
I don't want to purchase the animal and then be broadsided by a large financial burden. I can afford the actual purchase of the pet, I know. But I'm talking long term care.
