Anonymous sent: Hey! Just a quick question about my hedgehog ^_^, I noticed today a small scab/sore on her forearm and I am not sure if it's something to worry about or not! I will for sure keep an eye on her and on the scab and see if it heals normally or gets worse. Do I need to do anything for her? Thanks for your time!! (and by the way I love your blog!! :D)

Keep an eye on it for now, if it’s small and already scabbing it’ll probably heal quite fast. But make sure it doesn’t get infected or bigger; sometimes when a wound is healing it itches, and some hedgehogs chew on it and make it worse. If it does get worse you’ll have to take her to the vet. I hope it heals quickly, and thank you!

anomalousfangirl sent: Any tips for picking out a hedgehog? Any ideas for determining personality at the breeder's? I'm going to the breeder's on Saturday to pick a hedgie out! =)

I tend to go with my gut feeling - I want to get that “this is the one” feeling. Sometimes you see an animal and you get that feeling immediately. So I would say, get the one that feels right. As for character, one that’s not that huffy and seems curious and outgoing (but who knows, maybe you’ll fall in love with the shy one)
But besides that, check if the hedgehog is healthy; not too skinny, no runny eyes or nose, no injuries etc.
Good luck!
