Hi board,
I am a new member here and a new member of being owner to a hedgehog. I had bought a hedgehog last night from craigslist from a couple. My story starts with wanting to have one since I was little when I became a fan of Sonic The Hedgehog. I have been looking for one for about a few weeks in a serious aspect because I never thought much about buying one before. Well, I finally got around to it.
I went to go and pick him up last night and didn't think much of it until I had got home. I realized that he didn't have any ears. I then thought that it was sweet of me to rescue a disabled hedgehog. It isn't fair. What if it were you, And no one wanted you because of an ailment. So, I decided to keep him. He is living in a mobile home right now. I went out and bought him a huge cage with a wheel and tube. He is living high off the hog(No pun intended). I am just worried about him having no ears. Can they hear? Is this bad? He also tends to go to the bathroom a lot when I take him out and try to hold him? Is that normal to go to the bathroom on you? I looked up hedgehogs and tons of information, But it didn't answer my questions about ears at all or even bathroom habits. So, I am wondering about this. Should I take him to the vet for a checkup? I hope that someone can help me with some issues.
Thanks.
Hope to get to know this board. :)

Good day,
Thank You both for the responses. Aww, Larry, Thanks a lot. I am going to try and take him to the vet on Monday and see what they can do for him. He only manages to freak out, So to speak, When I go to pick him up in his cage. When I take him out, He doesn't shy away or make a noise. He is squirmy when I let him out though. I am guessing that it is because he is frightened. I assume that it takes time for him to adjust to people and his new hut. :?: Yes, I do have some pictures that I could share. He is six months old and have named him Sonic. :) Here he is:





LoL, My dog doesn't know what to make of him:
