Hedgehog cleaning her feet
My hedgie Nuala keeping her feet clean. As this video has become so popular, I feel it necessary to inform people a little more about Hedgehogs. They are very cute and can be sweet, but they are A LOT different than other pets. Hedgehogs are not like hamsters or guinea pigs, they require A LOT more attention and care and don't tend to be great pets for young kids or people who's lives are very hectic and busy. Also, they tend to have more medical ailments such as cancer (Nuala had the equivalent of a hysterectomy in Feb. because she had endometriosis and possible pre-cancerous cells in her uterus). So in the year and 8 months I've owned her, I've racked up about $2,000 in vet bills. They require a large cage, a safe wheel to run on, a Heat Lamp to keep their cage between 72-80F, as well as a LOT of time and attention from their owner. I handle Nuala for several hours a day. I usually take her out in the evenings and have her with me while on the computer or watching TV. If you are seriously interested in a Hedgehog, please do research first. 2 great links are: http://www.hedgehogwelfare.org and http://www.hedgehogcentral.com
