Just when I thought I had finally perfected my hedgie resistant powers and convinced myself that my 2 girls were all the hedgies I needed, this little guy managed to wiggle his way into my life!

I found him at my local humane society when I was volunteering exercising the rabbits, and after taking him out to play for fifteen minutes, I found myself putting him on hold to adopt a few days later. His previous owner surrendered him in a pretty small cage with no wheel, crappy shavings, and what appears to be a carpet toilet lid cover. Yet he's the friendliest hedgehog I've ever come across. Loves to run, is rarely ever in a ball, is already letting me start to clip his nails (they're overgrown).

According to their records he's 2 years old, but judging from his size, softness and short quill length I'm thinking he's more in the months range, definitely under a year.

Anyways I love him already!! Check out the video as well. :D

That's awesome that you helped him out and he's lucky to have a great hedgie parent. He is absolutely adorable and is a fast little runner lol :)

Thanks Everyone, I love him to pieces :D
He such a little active boy, I can't get him to stay still!
Hedgehogs don't come into the humane society very often (thankfully) but I just couldn't leave him! I'm afraid I can't rescue any more now, but thankfully there's a super awesome knowledgeable adoptions counsellor there who says she usually takes hedgehogs home when no one else adopts them, so that's great to know!
