    dear world, I am running away

    Dear World, I am running away from home. I ran a lot over the weekend and last night. I pooped and I ran and I ran through my poop. I had glorious poopboots. Then mommy tried to take my poopboots away. I was very upset by this. I huffed. I puffed. I nipped. I pooped on mommy. That terrible...

    "wild" hedgies and chins might run on wheels if provided in their natural habitat?!

    "wild" hedgies and chins might run on wheels if provided in their natural habitat?! Hedgiedaddy ran into an interesting article: http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/281/1786/20140210.full Small preview from the abstract: "Here, we show that when running wheels are placed in nature...

    Marlee's miracle at 7 months

    Miracle of miracles! Miss Marlee was found Saturday morning IN her own hedgiebag. She did it all by herself. I found her just like this: And was absolutely amazed. Having seen many hedgies snuggling into a hedgiebag on their own, this probably seem like a ridiculous post. Why would someone...

    Bella and Marlee together - first time

    As a first in the Hufflepuff household, Bella and Marlee were allowed to meet. They've seen each other. They've lived in the same room. They've vacationed with cages touching. But they hadn't been nose to nose before. I set up their play area, put myself close by in case there was any...

    They tricked me

    Does this look like the face of a trickster: This is Miss Marlee Twyla Hufflepuff - the newest addition to the Hufflepuff family. This morning, Marlee and Bella played a trick on me. They are very clever. I looked into each girl's cage and saw their wheels. Bella had a relatively clean...

    killing MRSA

    A few years ago Tex was diagnosed with MRSA. Happily, he was successfully treated and it did not spread to us humans. While we were able to treat him with medicine applied directly to his little nose by dropper and via nebulization, and could clean his belongings either in the wash or wiped...

    Piroxicam

    In 2011, Miss Satin Mirranda Hufflepuff developed a lump in her jaw. It turned out to be squamous cell cancer. Thus began my quest to find something to slow it down and ease the pain. There wasn’t much in the way of solid info about hedgehogs and cancer treatment, but there had been some...

    Giant Wheel

    Oh my goodness... I think we've all checked out the latest and greatest wheels for our chins and hedgies. Not so sure about the chin side of things, but one of the themes on the hedgie side is: "make it bigger! and safe too... but bigger!!!" Today, I happened upon this wheel. 43" diameter...

    fastidious hog

    After years of poopy wheels, messy feet, and other poo-related joy, I find myself in the company of a clean hedgie. I almost don't know what to do. Miss Bella leaves her wheels clean... as a result, her wheelmats are clean and her feet are clean. She doesn't require dish mats as she leaves no...

    Tex Buckaroo Hufflepuff: Adopted 2/15/2010 - Passed 4/2/2012

    Texie, Texie my little boy, my tiny boy, my beautiful boy, I can't believe I'm sitting here typing something without you in my hands. It felt like you were always there. A part of me. Right there in my left hand, cradled in my arm, snuggled up against my belly. Snuggled... my snugglehog...

    dishrag hog - Tex is sick... again

    I'm holding my little dishrag at the moment. Little boy just seems so tired and floppy. He has some spunk, but definitely under the weather. Midday, I spotted him lying about in the open... NOT his style. Tex is a hedgiebag boy through and through. Turns out he pooped up his igloo and...

    Arlington TX 2 year update

    I was curious how everyone was fairing now that we're a bit past two years out. I know the chins had an earlier train out of Texas than many of the hedgies, so perhaps the post is a bit late. But I'd like to hear! I'm sure others would too. How have things been these past two years? Any recent...

    CSCLS-lite is now disc-shaped??

    Stupid company changing the shape of the kibble. sigh I suppose if it had to happen, it's best that they changed it after Miss Satin passed. I wonder if she would have done with it like what she did with the Innova. Step 1: nibble on some; leave most in dish Step 2: leave it all in dish Step...

    Happy Hedgehog Day!!

    Today is Hedgehog Day:) “If during hibernation, he (the hedgehog) looks out of his den on 2nd February and sees his shadow it means there is a clear moon and six more weeks of winter so he returns to his burrow.” I did scoop Tex out of his hedgiebag this morning for footbath and snuggletime...

    stressed?

    I was a very active little boy this morning. Mommy usually gives me a foot bath, then I settle into my bath blankie to get warm and dry while she squeezes out my washcloth (I stand on it during bath time) and dumps out my bathwater from my special tub. Today, I was so rowdy, Mommy had to use...

    ingrown quill?

    I am very angry. I stomp at mommy. I stomp at daddy. Mommy made me sit still and looked at me. She moved my quills. It hurt. I told her I was not happy. I stomped in a circle. I huffed. She wouldn't stop. Not even when I stomped in two circles. She finally stopped and said she thinks I have...
