Default Howard's happy ending

Hi everyone, so the other day I posted about Howard, the hedgie who had a not so great start. Mites, lice, infections, dollar store food, and they didn't have a cage for him he lived in a pee soaked cardboard box. Howard's owner dropped him off at the pet store, claiming he was mean and pooped too much and was messy. (Why don't you give a go at a guinea pig lady? See what messy really is!) I eventually wondered into the store and since I'm known as hedgehog lady there the girl showed him to me. Took me over to a cage with a couple bowls and a few towels. They admitted they didn't know anything about hedgehogs but thought they couldn't be worse then his owner. I felt bad for Howard his nails were long and he lost some quills so I went got him a toy and blanket and a bed. I visited Howard everyday to socialize him. Eventually my boyfriend Chris asked how much he was, so I went in the next day and they said for you, we would give him to you for free. Now I'm not working for the summer so I was conflicted about supplies, vet bills, food. I was so upset and frustrated. Then Chris said he wanted Howard to spend the rest of his life, however long that may be, in a warm happy place and he said Howard belongs with him they're gonna meet for the first time tonight at Howard's forever home! Howard is twice the size of Charlie! He's huge! I got some pictures and the one in the pink blanket is Charlie just cause she's too cute. The rest are Howard. I'm so happy for Howard and Chris I just had to share!
