My baby girl Poppy needs a new home.
I bought her when she was already nine months old, and I've now had her for just over a year.
I've come to realise that I don't have the time to give her the kind of attention that she deserves. She's perfectly healthy from what I can tell, never had mites or anything, eats well. But she's always grumpy, and I haven't had the time to dedicate to opening her up.

I'd like to be sure that she goes to an owner who has had previous experience with hedgehogs, and no small children, because she does tend to try and bite. I've been trying to get her to stop, and believe I've seen a little bit of improvement, but it would probably scare children too much and in turn stress her out.

I will be selling her with ALL of her stuff, as I don't plan on getting another one.
That includes:
-Cage - set up on wheels with a ramp and loft that separates food/water from her wheel etc.
-Kaytee Water bottle
-Ceramic Food bowl
-Two plastic food bowls (just in case)
-A brand new, barely opened bag of her food. (dry kitten food, I've never been able to get her to eat anything else but live mealworms)
-1 Bag of freeze dried mealworms and 1 bag of dried chicken bites. (She's never eaten them for me, but hey, you never know)
-Mealworm/insect tweezers.
-Feeding tube (She wouldn't eat when I first got her, so I had to try and force her...she didn't like it)
-Silent Wheel (Blue)
-2 reversible fleece liners for her cage (side1:red side2:blue w/polka dots)
-Fleece tunnel (her favorite sleeping place)
-Fleece Carrying bag
-Purple Igloo (She hasn't been using this because it's a little large for her cage)
-litter pan
-poop scooper
-Puppy Potty Pads (Which I use under her wheel and in her litter pan instead of shavings)
-2/3 of a bag of shredded paper if you want it (for litter pan or lining her cage)
-Brand new "medium" Play Pen (Seems pretty big to me: Plenty of space for running around with a toilet paper tube)
-3 small plastic balls for playtime
-Bathing toothbrush and nail clippers (I don't have soap for her, she's always hated baths so much I just used plain water.)

ALL of this AND the hedgehog herself, for $250.

Price is somewhat negotiable.

There is an album on my profile page with some pictures of her. She really is a beautiful girl. She has brown coloring over each eye and up the middle of her snout. And her quills are a warm chocolate color.

If you live in the DFW area and are interested in giving this adorable girl a new home, please email me at [email protected]

Feel free to send questions my way too.
Thanks so much!

Edit: $150

Listen guys, I'm willing to go down to $150. I just know that she'd be happier if she had someone who gave her more attention. Please.

If anyone would like to re-home her or knows of someone who takes and rehabilitates/re-socializes/etc hedgies, I'd be so grateful.

If you really want the best for your hedgie and since you haven't been able to sell it, maybe you'd like to consider relinquishing it to the hedgehog welfare society, they take in hedgies in need of a home.

Look them up and contact them.

Update

Poppy has been re-homed. She was re-socialised and then found her new home at Sky Ranch.

I think she'll be quite happy there. :)

Thanks for the help and advice.
