My name is Bethany. I am a fairly new Hedgie owner. The story of how Kami came to me is kind of sad. One of my co-workers bought Kami as a gift for her daughter. She did not do any research. Her daughter just wanted a hedgehog so that she could say she had one. The first three days that my co-worker had Kami, she was left alone in her cage with no bedding, not even a blanket. She had nothing but a bowl of food. She didn't even think to give her water. My co-worker came to me, knowing that I love animals, and asked me to take Kami. When I asked why, she said "Because she is annoying". I asked her what Kami did that was "annoying". She said that Kami had been climbing the side of her 3 foot tall ferret cage and letting go, dropping to the ground and making a loud thump,over and over. (I assume she was trying to escape, and who could blame her) I did some quick emergency research (using mostly Hedgehog Central) to see what I would need to care for Kami properly. I ran to PetSmart and got Kami the needed accessories, and the next day, I brought her home. I named her Kamikaze, because of the self-destructive tendencies that lead me to have her. She was understandably shy, and extremely terrified at first. But now, she is an amazing animal. I have had her for nearly five months. She doesn't climb the cage anymore, since she has food, water, a bed, bedding, toys, a wheel, and pretty much anything else her heart desires. She comes to work with me 2 or 3 times a week to socialize. She loves coming and playing around on my desk. I think its her favorite time of the week.

It is these kinds of posts that make my day.
It was so kind of you to save her from what would have been a slow death.
You will find so much help here just reading the posts.
Now you need a safe wheel for her like the bucket wheel Larry makes.
Keep us posted how she is doing.
Love you take her to work. :P
