    Waylon, my beautiful Texas Tumbleweed

    My beautiful Waylon crossed the bridge yesterday morning sometime between 8 and 9:30. It has been an emotional few days as I willed him to get better. I had the sick feeling since Tuesday that he would not make it. Two weeks ago yesterday Waylon was at the vet because he had started sleeping in...

    After much looking I found my first pedigreed female and male. Her first litter was cannibalized. This was devastating as I was so excited about our first litter. Luckily mom was ok. Months later we tried again. This time she delivered 7 tiny dead babies that were born too early. She lost an...

    On the weekend I got an email from a woman looking for a hedgehog rescue. The hedgehog had been seized during a raid on a house and 'she' was living in horrible conditions and owned by a 17 year old druggie. The woman contacting me was going to keep her but felt she was far to unsocial for...

    Choking, what to do

    First of all, DON'T Panic. Quietly watch and see exactly what is happening. Is he choking because there is a piece of food in the roof of his mouth? If so, quite often they gag sometimes to the point of vomiting to try and loosen it. As long as the hedgehog is able to breath on his own, quietly...

    2005 ? - 2009,03,10 Muffin came to live here last year as a re-home. She'd had numerous homes during her life and her last owners thought she was 3.5 at the time. She was very obviously an elder hog and I'm guessing she was older than they thought. Muffin was a sweetheart and a very neat...

    Miki meets golf ball

    Last night, apparently Miki discovered a golf ball. There has been a golf ball in the play area every time she has been out but for some reason, she never paid much attention before. Rather than walk around it, she HAD to go over it. She got stuck. She would lift one back leg and...
