Default Feels good to do a good deed at a pet store. :)

So today I went to a pet store that of course had a hedgehog. I held the little clicking huffing ball and I felt bad for the poor thing.
One of the girls there listened to all my advice and said she would change everything. Yay. Her wheel was only 8in and wire. She was on commercial hedgehog food (I showed the chicken soup for the cat lovers soul light which they sell there and told them to change slowly.). I also explained how the water bottle was bad for their teeth.
Anyway before I went to this pet store I was at Joannes Fabrics (sp?) and bought opal some fleece.
I made my mom run out to the car and cut her off a little square and the pet shop people said she could have it to snuggle with. I also explained it would be good to handle her with.
I knew I couldn't buy her but I'm so glad I could give her a little piece of snuggle fleece. I just wanted to share how happy I am that I gave a hedgie some fleece

On a side note. The hedgies poop was like black and hard like she was constipated (I saw her do it) What is that a sign of? o.O

Black hard stool is usually a sign of Internal Bleeding I believe

I'm so glad they listened to you. I would be afraid that the people working at the pet shop would be crappy about getting advice. I mean jeez, you work at a pet shop and you don't do proper research on how to care for your animals?

Thanks for making a difference!

I hope so too. I hope they don't throw it out when it gets dirty. I told them they can just rinse it warm water and hang it to dry and that should be good in 20mins. Cause I know they're not going to wash it in a washing machine.

OH and the scariest part about that trip the girl that works there was saying how her mom breeds hedgehogs and she didn't know any of this. AND she said how her mom was thinking of buying her to breed but changed her mind.
Dumbbutts.

There isn't a nice way of saying it XD

I feel for those poor hedgies though if they didn't even know that then its likely a lot of them end up in improper care homes too even if they don't end up with WHS
