So after much dilema after Razzle having to be put down I instantly got a new hedgehog trying to replace him. It didnt work out and I ended up giving him to a very good friend of myne. Hes doing great. I still have Numo. I love him so much. Ive gotten into more of a regular routine with him and hes coming along great. My birthday is on march 19th and I was thinking if all goes good and in March I think its okay and everything good. Maybe I could try again?
What do you guys think?
Things to remember..

- I will get it from Connie and NOT a petstore this time
- I will only get another hedgehog if I feel im 110 % ready.
- I will get a baby that is well socialized.
- I will spoil the hedgie like never before :)
- Some people assume I will forget about Numo and that will NOT happen. I can garuntee that.

..This isnt for sure just a idea. I know that one day I will get another hedgehog again.

Ash, I'm afraid I have to agree with the majority here. I do respect you for finding a home for Jumbie where he will get more attention, I think it's great to think of him first. But considering what faults could come up with another one, it may not be the best idea to get another one yet.

I know a while back I was tempted to get another, but I didn't want to worry about splitting time, or keeping them apart, or the worry about double the potential vet bills. Instead I spoil Inky more than you might think is possible, and it has been so rewarding. I'm also able to save up more for vet bills which I think is something many people don't do til a problem arises.

I'm afraid if I got one with a better (or worse!) personality I might start handling the other less, etc. etc. But, I might just be biased because I had a horrible nightmare about me getting another hedgehog, and Inky ended up dying. I won't go into specifics but it scared me enough to say INKY IS THE ONLY ONE!

Sorry, I got distracted... anyhow, spoil Numo out of his mind and enjoy him for what he is. Who knows, maybe later you'll find another hedgehog you just can't resist and be able to get that one. You'll be glad you didn't fill that gap earlier just because it was there.
