Okay, okay, so I still don't know the details, but it appears that Hoppin Hedgehogs doesn't want to sell me their hedgehogs anymore. My name disappeared from their reservation list last night. They have yet to give me an explanation for why I'm suddenly unsuitable to become a new hedgehog owner.
I was seriously choked. Even though I hadn't even gotten my hedgehog yet, I felt like someone had taken it away from me. You all know how excited I have been about getting one soon!
But, things sometimes work out for the best.
A super nice breeder that heard about my situation has offered to let me have one of her little hedgies instead AND she doesn't mind letting me post her pictures one bit! I can't tell you what a big relief that is. I've been stressing over not being able to post pictures of my new little hedgehog loves. I really like sharing my hedgehog experience with you, and I wanted to let you see what I was so thrilled about.
Anyways, she sent me photos and here he is! *Gush* He's so adorable!!!
And here's mum and dad hedgehog:
Ahahaha! They're so awesome!
So it's all falling into place now. I've ordered a Carolina Storm Wheel for him from Larry, and if the email is correct, he mailed it out the same day (You rock, Larry!). This is the highest recommended wheel by other hedgehog owners.
Also, my boyfriend showed up at the door today with a Living World Deluxe Habitat Cage. It's no wonder he was so equally upset when I told him that the breeder had removed me from his list. He had the cage sitting in his trunk ready to give to me! He's a great guy, huh?
So with the wheel in the mail, and the cage in my house, I'm ready to start sewing. It's time to make my new little friend a custom fleece liner for his house. I'll make him a hedgie bag to sleep in too. I knew all that sewing would come in useful one day.
I just want to send out a quick thanks to Stephanie at Happy Hedgies for making my day. It was supposed to be miserable, but her kindness made it into something much more special.
Fingers crossed for a baby hedgehog by the end of this month (even sooner than the other one would have come home, eek!)
Have a happy day!
