I got quite possibly the best Christmas present ever, Bridget is a two-month-old African Pygmy Hedgehog. I have wanted a hedgie for a long time but since they became legal to own in Maine without a permit last summer my dream seemed to be a little more attainable.
It was at the end of November that my parents added me to a Holiday waiting list at a breeder in Franklin New Hampshire, and on December 15th I picked out which baby I wanted via the photos on the breeder’s website. On the 22nd my family and I took the two-plus hour drive in a snowstorm to pick her up.
The moment I saw her I was in love, she is quite probably the cutest little thing I have ever seen, and trust me, I have seen so adorable things.
I have had her for almost a month now, and despite the little bumps in the road of learning how to be a hedgie mom, she has been an absolute joy.
I know this is a different type of post, but if you would like to see more of this little darling let me know.
