    I just got my first hedgehog two days ago (I had been asking for one for forever) and he is the cutest hedgehog, ever. To me at least. My mother thinks he's boring because he sleeps all day, but she doesn't understand that he's nocturnal! And he's really fun. He loves his toilet...

    Ever Since I Was 4 1/2

    When I was little, I lived in France, and my mom bought me this little stuffed toy hedgehog, about 3 inches tall. It was made by a company called 'Tartine et Chocolat.' A lot of people mistook little Arthur for a teddy bear because he was upright, but he is a 'harrison' (hedgehog...

    I used to have one when I lived in my apartment

    he was then best I named him binx after the cat in hocus pocus. He was four months old when I got him and since he was nocturnal it was perfect because I would get off at night and play with him for a while before we both went to bed. I never knew such a small animal could give...

    Alice Marie Hoggie The First

    Hello, I own a 1-year old African Pygmy named Alice. She's a spunky little brat who loves to hiss but knows when it's play time. She's silly.

    Not Sure Why

    When I lived in London, I lived in the Primrose Hill neighborhood, which at the time was a lovely, quiet place with an amazing park, (and said hill).  I don't know what the neighborhood is like now, but at the time, it was one of my favorite parts of London to stroll through...
