If I was not confined by living in an apartment(and being married(but it's a good confinement with side benefits), then I would probably have more than one snake, and more than one cat...and a ferret. I just think ferret's are neato. Oh, I've heard they can have a funk about them...but have you ever been around an 8-week old baby? Ferret's just seem like they would be fun. Oh...and a racoon(or a billy-bumbler).
So, I was a little caught by surprise by the newest craze sweeping my wife's facebook world: Hedgehogs. Just this week, two of her friends have gotten hedgehogs as pets.
Now, I always thought of hedgehogs as kind of being a mini-porcupine...which wouldn't be much fun to cuddle with as a pet, but, after my wife showed me a few pictures of her friends with their hedgehogs, I will admit to being slightly intriqued. I even visited the sickiningly sweet website Hedgies.
Only slightly intriqued though...the few breeders I checked out have waiting lists. And they want between $175 and $200 for one.
I'm sure they are just as cute in pictures as they would be in my apartment.
