Default Sumo Update! And Pics!!!

Sumo seems to be settling in well. He is eating and drinking and LOVES his CSW. I was lucky enough to be up at 2am so I got to see him in action - he moves with surprising grace, given his size. (He's actually much quieter than Snarf was with the CSW. ) He runs for about 30 seconds, then stops and swings swings swings, then runs, then swings swings swings. Every time he stops, he hangs his head down off the wheel to check out his litter situation. Very cute.

Snarf seems to be dealing with his new brother as well as one can expect from Snarf. I get regular 'once-overs' when I've been handling Sumo or his stuff and Snarf's neck muscles are getting a workout with Snarf keeping his nose up and sniffing 27/7.

I forgot how much energy you can/must? devote to a new hedgie: food okay? poop okay? water? bedding? enough places to sleep? warm enough? too hot? better check the food again...poop okay? water? bedding? ....etc etc etc

LOL, nice. Glad he is settling in and his brother is "accepting" him!

The hardest part of taking in new hedgehogs is the quarantine period. Keeping everything separated to prevent anything bad from getting to your current hedgehog(s). I wash and change clothes between them. Plus the scale must be sanitized if you don't have a 2nd scale. Those 4 weeks feel like forever.

Awww, no fair. I wanted to see pics!

I'm glad he's settling in though. Seems like Snarf is being very accepting of his new baby bro.

You cheat! XD

I'm glad Sumo is settling well. It's nice having someone else with a new hog at the same time as me, so I know I'm not the only one obsessing over every little thing XD
