ME TOO! We tried getting hedgehogs when I was really young -- my mom ordered one from the pet store lady in our area (same lady still runs the place these days too) and when he came in . . . he was fucking vicious! Agressive, angry, bad tempered, bad attitude hedgehog. LOL. My sister and I said we didn't care. We'd deal with his anger. We just wanted him so badly. My mom had paid $80 to have him sent down here and well, sadly enough, we left hedgehog-less.
We never let her live that down, but I am thankful we didn't grow up with hedgehog injuries. Lol. I'd love to have me a tamed, nice one though.
Our pet store has chinchillas and I adore them! They're priced from $70-$100 though and I worry about paying that and getting an animal I don't know enough about, but I've been in the pet store playing with them on and off for the last few years. Had a friend who bought one, but didn't really take the best care of him.. Well, she did, but he was stuffed in a room with tons of other animals that could get to his cage. So I worry about my cats getting around one too, although they don't mind Hubert the hamster at all.
These days I see these photos of a baby hedgehog cuddling the owner and taking baths all the time. They look so sweet! I wonder where or how you'd go about getting a baby one that is easy going. I do love seeing those photos all over the internet though. They always make me smile.
