Hedgehogs are extremely cute, but please be sure that a hedgehog is the right pet for you.
Be prepared for a commitment; hedgehogs require lots of time and attention to be a good pet.
They make poor pets if mostly ignored or occasionally played with.
The last thing a little hedgehog needs is to feel abandoned or to be passed from home to home when interest runs thin.
This can create a very fearful and sad hedgehog.
You will get out of your relationship with your hedgehog what you put into it.
This can be very frustrating or very rewarding; it is up to you!
