Hey there everyone,
I was wondering if anyone around here had a pet hedgehog. My friend mentioned to me that I should get one since I can't have other pets like a dog or guinea pig(since everyone else in my family besides me is allergic to their fur).

I'm just curious as to how easy, expensive, and time consuming a hedgehog would be. Apparently, hedgehogs are quite popular as pets in the eastern half of the world, but not as much in North America.

Help is much a appreciated.

Thanks all.

My sister keeps telling me to get one and name it Sonic. Which i totally would, but i'd rather get a guinea pig.

As far as i know i'd say they're pretty easy to take care of but i'm not entirely sure. They're incredibly cute though.

I'm assuming it would take the same or less time and effort as it would with a regular pet.

And don't name it Sonic. Name it Cecil

Well I did have a pet hedgehog once, he got away, the son of a bitch was faster than the speed of sound. He was also blue, tell me if you see him.

They're common pets? I wouldn't have thought so but fair dos.

Stick insects or some sort of reptile will be easily manageable. I could have stick insects but I think I'd bee too afraid of them to handle them, and it's important so...

I want one sooooooooooo badly. I have an adorable stuffed hedgehog I can't sleep without. Plus I am an avid Sonic fan.



If you get one, make sure to post lots of pictures =]

I heard that hedgehogs don't really smell, unlike guinea pigs. But yeah, hedgehogs are damn cute, haha.

I was under the impression that they roamed as a pet skunk does. I'm a little disappointed that they have cages.

I kinda want something small that I can keep in my own room since the rest of my family probably won't want to take care of it, lol.

I had a pair for awhile. They are really fun. They are sweet animals that are fun to play with once you learn how to hold them safely.

I would still have them but my mom put their cage outside (with them in it) while I was out because she thought they would like the fresh air. Well, the damn stray cats got into their cage somehow...

Just keep them inside. They are about the same maintainence as a hampster. They are very affectionate.

I plan on getting more soon.

Well in that case, I don't know if any caged animal is good because their cages end up smelling horrible regardless of how often they're cleaned. It sucks to have it in your room stinky.
