Here is Bibitte, the little albino hedgehog that passed away on Sunday, August 9th. We think it was either a stroke or a heart attack from his last moments (suddenly weak, unstable, started agonal breathing + seizures). It all went so fast. At least he was with us when he went.
He was a healthy little boy of 2, with plenty of attitude. He knew what he wanted and he got it. He loved to run around, but after a good exploring sessions, would contentedly snuggle in a blanket on our belly. He was our first hedgehog, we got him from Nancy. We gave him all we could, and tons of love. He became very attached to Alex (my boyfriend), since he was the provider of the stinky socks he loved so well. He was a good eater, loved his superworms, and wheeled like a maniac every day. We miss him so much. Two years was just too young.
We are getting another one though, because he got us hooked on hedgehogs. It'll be a little girl coming from Mika, and I'll post all about it when we get her. But for now, we remember Bibitte, and we hope he had a full and happy life with us.
