Meet Roxy

A few months ago, we babysat a hedgehog at our house. Mia’s awesome school has a teacher that literally has a zoo in her classroom, and if the kids bring recyclable cans, they can bring an animal home for the weekend to babysit.

We enjoyed her so much we told the teacher if she ever had babies, to put us down for one.

Guess what? Yup, she had babies!  3 of them.  One died very early, but the other two are thriving…a boy and a girl.

Mia chose the girl.  Here she is around a day old.

And here at 2 weeks of age.  Meet Roxy….a face only a mother could love!

Look at that smile. We are all so excited.

She is now about three weeks of age and we will be bringing little Roxy home when she is 6 weeks. In the meantime, we are reading up on everything hedgehog and preparing her home for her.

Stay tuned!

    This is crazy. I didn’t know you could have one as a pet. So ugly yet so freaking cute.
