I will call him Squishy and he will be mine
I am again temporarily boarding Kassie's hedgehogs while she figures stuff out. They were here for a while, went back for a while, and now they're back. And they have babies! The female hedgehog Sunny, well, really is a bitch. She's not friendly to take out, she hisses a lot, and was certainly not happy with me when I took her out of the pen so I could play with the babies. Oh well. I'm bigger than her. And she can't hurt me through ski gloves! These babies are about a week old. The bottom picture is Russell, or "daddy". He's been banished from the house since the babies were born. It's funny to see him try to get back in the house. She hisses and spits at him until he leaves and goes back under his blanket. You can see her in the window. From what I understand, they are two rare breeds of hedgehog. He's a salt and pepper something and she's, well, I don't remember what she is but she's pretty. And I think I want to keep one!
