Default Getting my first hedgie tomorrow :>

And I'm über excited. I've been reading bunches of information on this website and the forums. And I'm sure I'm ready.
I called a pet store in my hometown out of curiosity, and they had one hedgie available who has been there for about a month. Her owner got her from a breeder in Indianapolis and had to get rid of her. She's a cinnamon pinto. About a year old. And she's going to be spoiled :3
Not sure if she already has a name, but I was thinking of calling her Lotus.
The lady said that her owner dropped her cage, water bottle, food, food dish, and wheel off with her because she's attached to them, so that basically saves me some money since it comes along with no charge. But the lady said that she doesn't really eat alot and that I'd have to take everything out of her cage or something and watch her eat. But I don't know if there's something wrong or if she just doesn't like the food [Iam's cat food].
But I'm pretty psyched because I've been wanting to be a hedgie mama for a while, but breeders are too far away :/ lol.

Thanks I just got her and she didn't ball up or anything. She hissed a few times but she let's me hold and pet her. She seems like a girl out for an adventure

If you were at the breeders thats typical just to let you know they will likely change their tune once in their new home for awhile

Not to discourage you but a lot of people post on her after coming home from the breeders or pet shop and can't figure out why their sweet exploring hedgehog is now a huffy ball of quills.

Sometimes you get really lucky and they're fine with it, but that's not too common :P

Lol well hopefully she doesn't change too much. I tried posting a pic from my fbook, but it didn't work. So I'll do it when I get home.
