Kudos for buying her...sounds like she's in way better hands already!
She's definitely a hefty girl. If I hold her bum to force a ball, she doesn't put her legs up all the way and grunts the entire time. I don't think she could do it if she tried. I bought her some really high-quality weight control food yesterday and put her on a diet. I think a vet visit is definitely called for. :/ I definitely don't want to give her back - her life must have been horrid and I adore her already - but I would love to have a little hedgepig that will be with me for a while, Poor girl.

Another picture of her lumps. :/
