Default Hello! I'm new here :) But not to hedgies!

Hi there, everyone! I thought I'd introduce myself.

I'm Spiely. I got my first hedgehog in middleschool. My stepdad got her for me. As I later learned, this was his attempt to get on my good side. I guess it worked, we are close friends now.

I had my Lily for 7 years, from middle school into graduating high school.
In the summer before I left for College she was getting very old. She had a hard time walking to her food bowl so I had to shrink her living space and help her eat. Eventually her breathing was very labored and she lay on her side. I asked my stepdad if we could go to the vet the next morning to put her to sleep. She was clearly nearing the end of her time and I didn't want her to suffer.

That night, I prayed that she would pass peacefully and we wouldn't need to put her to sleep. About an hour later, I got her out and she crawled into the sleeve of my fleece jacket, her favourite spot. I just sat on my bed cooing to her and trying to keep her comfortable. Within a half hour, I sensed that she was gone. I gently took off my jacket and slid her out. My prayers had been answered, and seven year old Lily passed peacefully in my arms.

I'm now a senior in college, and renting at a pet friendly apartment. I think I'm ready for a new four-legged family member in a few months and I'm thinking a hedgehog will be right for me once again.

This time I want a little boy! So I'm once again making lists of needed supplies and researching breeders in my area! So fun!

I hope to learn a lot here and get to introduce my new family member this fall!
