Default New Hedgie Gus

Well after 4 years of not owning a hedgehog I just took in a rehome one. His name is Gus and he's 2 years old. An lady that used to be my neighbour has developed an allergy to him and it has gotten to the point that anitihistamines aren't working anymore. It has begun to effect her breathing and she's just found out that she and her husband are expecting their first child.

As I said Gus is two years old and he is a very grumpy boy. He came with a large cage and bucket wheel. He does have a water bottle but I'm transitioning him to a bowl. He's also on an "ok" food but I want to add a better one to it. He's on shavings right now but I'm going to be making him some cage liners as soon as I'm caught up on my orders. He came home yesterday and didn't wheel last night but he did eat, drink and poop so I'm happy about that.

Wow! Nikki I had not realized it had been 4 years already. Man does time fly. Hopefully with a bit more interaction, as I'm sure he wasn't getting quite as much as he needed if she was allergic, he will be less of a grumpy Gus and more of a happy Gus.

Wow, I didn't realize it had been 4 years either. Time is speeding by isn't it. Glad you are back in the land of hedgehogs.
