Blimey. What a cool pet. Hedgehogs are rather cute, but they'd be even cooler if they were blue and could travel at supersonic speeds.

As long as no one prefers Tails I'm happy...

I've gone into a classic gaming mood recently and that includes Sonic the Hedgehog and Metal Gear Solid... I've made a spoof of MGS and my next animation will be a spoof of StH.

How sad.

But a hedgehog as a pet? Whoa... that would be just... wow...

Hedgehogs would be a great pet. Unless four of them, up a tree feeding on honey, fell on your eyes

I happen to be rather fond of hedgehogs. It tends to be one of my usernames. Having one as a pet is rather intruiging, as they tend to get around a lot at night, so does having one as a pet just mean that it sleeps in your garden? Seeing as how they are (surprisingly) prickly little buggers, I find it hard to see how else you could have one as a pet, although I know people have looked after bald ones, and baby ones that woudn't survive the winter.

I've looked after rescued ones to help them get fit enough to be wild again but I can't honestly see how they would make good pets either, Greeneyes.

Crazy Americans, do you have hedgehog wheels or something to stop them getting too fat?

actually, believe it or not, they can put their spines down. i actually have one in a cage in my room, yes, they are nocturnal, but they can be trained to be up at certain times, mine'll get up around the time i get home, they're als o not hard to feed, they can eat regular catfood (and the occasional mealworm) yes, there are wheels for hedgehogs to prevent them from getting fat, they're like regualre wheels, except they are mesh so the hedgehogs feet cant slip through (they dont have paws like mice) but you can train them sso that they wont poke up at people.

I'm aware that hedgehogs aren't always bristled, and I can see that if the got used to you they wouldn't bristle. I was I just curious, that is all. As for feeding them...as I understood it, cat food is very rich compared to dog food and can actually be bad for them. I haven't really researched the subject much, but I was under the impression that they should be fed dog food, not cat. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but you may wish to look into it.

mine doesnt, he's african, i could let him do it, but his breed is from a warmer climate where they dont naturally hibernate. they dont need to, but if you give them less and less food and water and cool their area, they'll go into hibernation

I looked into getting a hedgehog once. Their lifespan isnt too long especially for their price (I think it was around $300) ANd I have 3 cats.... not a good idea.

THey acctually breed blue hedgehogs too, they're not Sonic blue they're like a grey-ish blue. And I've heard they're quite snuggly little creatures and they usually keep their spikeys down unless they think they're in trouble.

There used to be hedgehogs in the bottom of the garden and we used to be able to pick them up. They weren't all that prickly. When it was dark and we were eating outside, they'd come out. It was all very sweet, but then they just... went...

All hedgehogs do that. They're only bristled when they curl up. Otherwise it would cause mating problems, what with the male getting repeatedly stabbed in the stomach and all.

And there are actually hedgehog shows and stuff in the US. Only they only come in 2 colours so the "coat" bit of it is rather amusing to judge... tongue.gif

I don't know anything about hedgehogs, but I find it interesting that they eat cat food. I once heard that Dog food is higher in ash than cat food, and can mess up a cat's urinary tract, so you can feed catfood to a Dog, but it isn't a good idea to give dog food to a cat, unless you like Vet bills...

Which has little to do with hedgehogs, except that it probably wouldn't do to give one Dogfood...

Hedgehogs are fantastic!

Has anyone noticed though that when they run its as if they hitch up skirts and these long legs appear and they really motor.
So much leg tucked away in such a cute, rounded exterior.

Also completely irrelevant but not at the same time...why when I see a hedgehog do I automatically call it Abernathy?
