Took far too long for you to help turn it over again!
Aww! he was ok! I wouldnt do anything to be cruel to my Dexter or any animal!
I was actually trying to catch the little dance he does with his legs sometimes when uncurling.
He is very cute!! I want one...but I think my cat would object!!
Very cute. Where do I get one and what do you feed him on?
Just not what Jinnantonnix suggested...well he right about the curry!
He eats dry cat food as his main food type. A few different brands mixed into one incase one stops being made you suddenly dont have to change their diet and upset their tummys. That is a mission in itself because you have to make sure they dont contain fish and make sure it has all their dietry requirements, but then it lasts ages. They are insectivores so need some bugs in there too. So a few meal worms. No fish and no dairy. Wet cat food is basically "junk" food to them, nothing in it.
As they have been domesticated they dont hibernate. Hiberantion usually leads to death as they haven't built up the food supplies etc. So i have to make sure he doesnt get cold, no special heating really just a nice room temperature but he does have a little pad i can stick in the microwave on chilly nights.
Erm....hedgehogs can run up to 8 miles a night so they need a wheel and a decent sized inclosure. No hamster cages.Yes they are noisy at night!!
If you really would like one, best thing to do is a bit of research and then find a recommended breeder so it's registered. Ive heard so many bad things about hogs from pet shops.
Dexter looks like me trying to get up off the sofa last Friday after a few too many vino's!!!!!!! I could have done with a helping hand then as well!!!!
