    Congrats! What breeder are ya getting him from? The only thing I'm concerned with is that he's a little young... Have you asked the breeder why he's being re-homed at 6 weeks?

    Oh gosh, I can remember all mine from the night I brought my first hedgie home (and cried the whole night because I thought little Raphael hated me!). Good memories!

    Congrats! I had one for a bit. Lots of fun!!! And my one tip would be not to keep it in your room lol. They get very noisy at night time. [​IMG]

    I'm getting it from Miss. Tiggy Winkles hedgehogs. I think I'm going to name it Merlin. I'll get it on January 3rd! I don't know why they let them go home at six weeks...I don't know that much about hedgehogs (although I'm reading like crazy). They seem like a good place- they made us do a survey, and are going to give us a quiz on hedgehog care when we get there. I want it young so I can make sure its freindly, etc. [​IMG]
    It said it guarantees it free of genetic desises, and such. So I feel pretty good about the place. I know not to get one of craiglist or anything.
