    I'm new here and registered as savingemily, because my family is doing just that. But for now, let me introduce myself by saying that I actually live in Canada, but have connections to the UK. We have way too many pets and wouldn't have it any other way. Some of these pets, like Emily, are...

    I recently bought a hedgehog that was pregnant ( i did not have any knowledge of this at the time) and she has 4 babies . She ate two and I witnessed her attempting to eat a third one. I am sure she was stressed in a new environment and I will admit too many people were around when my boyfriend...

    My female hedgie gave birth to two babies yesterday morning. It wasn't until the afternoon that I recalled sqeaks. I look in and there are two babies and everything seemed fine. I then go to bed and see that she has one in her mouth and is attacking the babies and ignoring them some of the time...

    so Izzie, my wonder-hog, is quite the wall-hugger. By that I mean that when she is placed in a spot, she looks for a wall, or something that she can stand next to, or ideally, bury into. I have a nice hallway in my large apartment in which she loves to run- she's a little tubby so I take her...

    Hey hedgehog experts! I have had 3 hedgehogs in my life, the current one is a plump african pygmy pinto hedgehog girl. Her name is Izzie :) I fear that I have conditioned her to be a picky eater. Thus, the vet has asked me to cut down on the fat and protein and offer fruits, veggies and leaner...

    Yesterday, I went and bought a brand new hedgepig from a girl, who seemed respectable, that went to school nearby. She seemed kind of fat (the hedgepig!) and not very well taken care of, but I felt she'd find a better home with me anyway, so I went ahead and bought her. I brought her home and...

    Hi, Me and my husband have many wonderful pets that we've gotten from friends and family as rescues or unwanted critters mostly, but most of the time we had a chance to research and find out what we were getting into and set there home up before they come to us. Well my husband has a friend who...

    I'm looking for a long eared hedgehog. They are not that hard to get... I can just ask big petstores, and they either have them, or can get them home. I've also talked to people who can get wc animals. I would prefer a breeder though, so I've been looking around on and off for about a year now...
