Default HELP!!! (Warning, sad)

For those if you that remember me, I was Widget's mommy. Sadly, Widget passed away last May. He became very ill and I had to let him go.

I am finally at a place where I feel like I am ready for a new one. The problem is there are really not breeders around here. I found a listing in Craig's list and this is where I need your help.

TALK ME OUT OF IT!!! I know CL is a terrible place to find pets, and even as I talk to this person, bells are going off telling me to back off. But I miss having a Hedgie so much! Someone talk me off the ledge please!!!

I am going to say if that hedgehog needs your help, then you should go for it. If bells are going off maybe that is a sign that this hedgehog needs you. You have the opportunity to help a hedgie in need and it might be really rewarding for you. I don't think craigslist is the worse place to get an animal, in fact, I think pet stores can be worse than craigslist.

With that being said, do what is right for you.

She says she's a hobby breeder and that she breeds get girls at most 2 times a year. I don't know if that's too much or not. Seems like it would be.

Twice a year or every six months is standard. Hobby breeders aren't bad as long as they aren't backyard breeding. Check and see if she has pedigrees on her herd.

You've been a hedgie owner before. You know what is required to take good care of them and how things can go wrong. See if there is any kind of health guarantee against WHS or other diseases. You know the drill! Sounds like your ready for this little one and this little one would benefit from a good home!
Good luck to you!

Nothing wrong with a hobby breeder who is careful about breeding. No warning bells there. For all craigslist can have some pretty awful stuff, there are also honest valid and caring people trying to conduct real business.

Well so much for getting talked off the ledge, lol! I'll sleep on it and maybe I'll have a new Hedgie tomorrow. I went ahead and took the cage apart for a cleaning (that needed to happen anyway.) I didn't want to look at it much after Widget died, it was too sad.

Thanks all

Ugh, now my niece is running around the house screaming like a lunatic and I'm wondering if I really want to subject a baby to this. -_-
