Official Macey Thread :]
 
Hiya everyone. I thought I would make this thread to just share the cuteness and updates of my little Hedgie Macey.

Macey was born June 26th and I received her last week. I <3 her mucho much so far. Especially those mis matched ears :D

Here is her baby picture that won my heart

And some pics from the big day when I brought her home.

Her first time meeting me.. . o O (who the heck are you?)

Within a couple days she relaxed and began eating better. Its cute watching her because she still appears to have baby teeth so it takes her a while to nibble her kitty food :)

My mother loves her and calls her "my grand daughter". I'm planning on taking her to meet my father today. He was diagnosed with Cancer recently and is starting Chemo. I'm hoping she will help cheer him up.

She's so itty bitty and adorable! :)

I'm really sorry to hear about your dad. :( I hope she brightens his day and that he'll kick that cancer's butt.

I love the picture of her in the sweatshirt (?)!

I am so happy you started a Macey thread. First of all, every picture is lovely; but I do have favorites. Her baby pictures are priceless. In her first outdoor picture, the side of her body is in the picture; but you can still see her making sure that she is looking at the camera. I adore that picture! Her ears in the "Quilling has started" picture are precious; so tiny with one light and one dark in color. Her current pictures show her for what she is; Macey is a princess!!! I am so sorry that your Father developed cancer. My brother had cancer and I say had. He beat it almost ten years ago because it could be defeated. Chemo is a hard road and your Father will need some support and some TLC. But it is part of the fight. I will pray for your Father as I prayed for my brother. Macey can certainly help to bring some sunshine.

Thanks everyone and for the kind words Shetland. I wasnt able to get out to my dads yesterday, he's a bit of a drive but am going to try today after work.

I did buy her some new kibble yesterday to try and mix in with the last of what the breeder sent me. I went with Purina Pro Plan Focus http://www.proplan.com/dry-cat-food/...-rice-formula/

I was worried she wouldnt like it as a small bag was expensive, around $15 dollars. When I got home I held her (she's quilling so she was balled up and grumpy). I took a small bit of the kibble and let her sniff it, she licked her lips and nose and ate it from my fingers and had nom's of approval. I gave her a few more kibbles that way and she seems to really like it :]

I like how the kibble sizes are smaller than what she was eating before. She still has somewhat of a hard time chewing and these looked easier for her.

Oh boy, now I'm worried. I read more and found out high protein may not be good for her kidney. Is that 40% number too high? Should I switch to something closer to 30%? :\

MochiAndMe 08-25-2013 11:49 AM

From what I've heard, yes. People on here tend to avoid corn too... (but there is some discussion going in the food section about high quality food or not.)

Also gave her a bath. She hated it, I think she was just scared.. pretty sure it was her first one ever. Once she dried off tho she was a lot more relaxed and stopped shaking. Pretty sure she was terrified. Cleaned out her cage too.
