We are still saddened by Hedgie's passing and miss her like crazy. Just going past the cage or looking in the fridge and seeing her food is saddening, yet I can't bring myself to throw it out either. (No worries, I'm not saving it for the next one, I will rid of it before then and buy new) I can still see her lying on that table lifeless and it breaks my heart. I'm glad my son never saw her that way. There was a neorscopy (probably spelled that horribly) and it was found that the lump indeed was from a spinal deformity as well as other abnormalities about her, although an exact cause of death wasn't found. She will be forever remembered.

But on a lighter note, we have found a wonderful new girl to bring home in about 1 month. I have contacted Jenn w/ Hedgie Haven and we are getting a beautiful little girl from her on December 1st. I can't wait!! We had just built Hedgie a new cage from solid C&C cube pieces and even were working on a 2nd level. (Right now it was just used for storage of her stuff though because we hadn't hedgie proofed it or made acess to it) The lower level is about 2 1/2 ft wide though by about 3-4 ft long. We had just gotten a fleece bag and hat from Nancy as well, so we'll wash them up as well as the liner (and probably make a few more liners) so everything will be ready for her. We have an igloo, but since Hedgie was so small, it may be too small for our new girl, so we might need to get another one, although 2 snuggle bags and a hat might be enough hideouts too. We do have a wheel, a silent spinner and several cat ball type toys. Now she just needs a name. I want to name her Tumbleweed as we had tried to name Hedgie (but my son wanted the name Hedgie) but my son's not convinced this time either that its a good name.

Here is a link to her slideshow.... http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a68/wi ... 992482.pbr

Thanx everyone. We are very excited to bring her home!!

Pixie your little guys is adorable!! Sorry you have to wait so long to get him, I'd be going nutz. I love the name too. We are still working on a name for our girl. I want Tumbleweed, but Ashton's not convinced. (I'd wanted it for Hedgie too) So we're still working on a name, but hopefully can come up w/ one soon.
