Newest Family Member - Daisy the Hedgehog

This is Daisy our hedgehog.
And this is Lexi who is such a good hedgehog caregiver. 
Daisy was a little overweight obese when we got her but she's slimming down.
Her previous owner had three cats who frightened the poor thing so much that she wouldn't come out of her igloo to run on her wheel. 
Hedgehogs are like hamsters and will run all night to keep in shape. 
She would just drag her food bowl into the igloo so she wouldn't even have to come out to eat.
I can relate.
Now that we have her she has taken to her running wheel again and loves to push toilet paper tubes all over her kiddie pool.   
She even likes baths and if we dared to put enough water in she might even swim. 

Who knew hedgies could be so sweet?

  1. That is just the cutest little hedgehog ever! If I didn't have a cat and a dog I would go out and get my children one.
    So Sweet!
