Hedgehog Party!!!

Well, we’re back, and so is Moosehead Stew!! Happy New Year, everyone!!

I don’t know if I explained this last time I used the joke, but around here, we call it a ‘hedgehog party’ when the hedgies have royally destroyed their pens, because the aftermath looks like two college students got drunk and trashed their very tiny little houses. Food and litter everywhere, wheels tipped, jingly toys thrown completely out of the pens… If there was a hedgehog equivalent of pizza boxes, they would be stacked in the corner, by the tiny little beer bottles.

And, man… What a smell… One week’s worth of condensed catfood smell & hedgehog droppings, all wafting out at once is not a nice smell…

This is me hosing them down afterwards. They were not happy that I was home again.

    At least yours don’t have the wood chips to get stuck in their fur and spines. When mine throw a party, Perceival usually ends up with chips sticking off all over him, like he woke up in a dumpster or something.

    Also, jealous that you can wash the girls at the same time. I have to do all 3 separately. Takes forever!

    Oh hedgies…

    You have pet hedgehogs? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of them being kept as pets.

    It’s the new thing, apparently; some mini kind at that. (Also, apparently, regular size ones were very popular as pets during the middle ages at least in Scandinavia).

  5. I can bet they had a blast at that party, and as a bonus they don’t even have to clean up.
    Also have a great 2010 🙂

    I really hate PA sometimes (hedgehogs are basically illegal here)
