Default Do You Ever Get Tired?

Please be advised, this is a rant from frustration, anger, and not a touch of sadness.

Do you ever get tired of answering the same questions over and over?
What can I do for quilling! What can I do for liner diving! What food is best! Why is an aquarium bad!
Over and over, and no one ever seems to read the stickies. I get so frustrated.

Over and over-
Oh, I'm so worried but I don't have any money to go to a vet! I also refuse to rehome with someone who CAN give them adequate care because...I LOVE THEM! I would be so sad without them...even if they are suffering and in pain because I am broke.

Over and over-
Ooops! Surprise Babies! Teehee! What do I DOOOO!

Over and over-
I researched and researched but I still know nothing about hedgehogs. But I researched!

Sorry, just a rant because I spent an hour in a fight with some teenager who LOOOOOVES her hedgie, he's her best friend...but he has an obvious raging skin infection with massive quill loss and she can't take him to the vet. I want to scream, that's not love for the animal, that's love for yourself. If you really love that god dang hedgehog FIND IT MEDICAL ATTENTION OR A NEW HOME! ANYTHIGN ELSE IS ABUSE FRANKLY!

End rant. Thank you.

I get it and I understand, I have had similar events happen. I try to read every sticky I can but sometimes it's good to get others opinion if it's nothing too serious. I'm sorry you were dealing with a stubborn kid

The worse part, for me, is that it is all animals all the time!! I have a huge group of animals in my house, we total 14 from a crested gecko to 5 dogs. I'm part of a forum or group for each one and there is always someone at least once a day who asks what is wrong and doesn't like it when the answer is go to the vet. Or when they say they don't have the money... UGH! I'm a pretty broke college student and I manage to vet my animals. Sometimes I eat cardboard for a week but I do what I have too.

I agree with your frustrations! When I have something come up I research and read and look for the answer or similar situation FIRST, then ask when I can't find a good answer (or go straight to the vet first!). It seems like a lot of people just ask first even though the answer is often pretty easy to find, or they should be rushing to a vet. That's my rant.

But we are here and answering these questions over and over and offering advice, in the nicest way possible, because we love these little creatures and want what is best.

It bothers me more if people don't ask questions and end up with a sick (or even dead) hedgehog. I'd rather answer the same question over and over again.
But yes, it can be tiring. One of the questions I hate the most is 'I just got a hedgehog and it sleeps all day, will it be like that forever?' If you don't even know you just bought a nocturnal animal you really did not do ANY research at all.

Speaking of rants! Who did this?!?! My sister found this picture floating around tumblr.



Please, please do not let ferrets be near any prey animal. They are carnivores with huge prey drive. They are used in ferreting overseas because of how good they are, this ferret can attack that hedgehog at any moment.

At least I'm not alone, heh. I just want to have a copy/paste "there's a sticky for that" "there's a sticky for that" "HOLY FLAMING POOP STICKS READ THE STICKIES! ESPECIALLY THE ONE WITH THE TITLE ABOUT YOUR QUESTION!"

Desiree...I can't even. Nope, refusing to see what you posted.
