New additions to our family!!

If you follow me on twitter you might have seen some hedgie related tweets! About a month ago my lovelyness approached me with the idea of getting pet hedgehogs. Initially I was like....oooo..kaaaay! But after looking into it and meeting some in person I decided why the hell not! As ya do. We have been in touch with breeders over in the uk and will be "popping" over on the ferry next weekend to pick up two hedgehogs. In preparation shane has been visiting a forum daily for advice, we have hired a carpenter to make us a home for our little fellas, bought all the necessery equipment needed. Shane has also gone a little over board and got two little webcams so we can invade their privacy and so their breeders can see how they are doing from time to time. Anyway would you like to see the little fellas? Of course you would! Shane has already named his skittles but I would like to wait till I meet the second hedgie before I name him!



Here is the home we had made especially for them! I have to admit when it arrived and I seen the size of it I did curse alot, but i'm very excited for the guys to arrive! 

Hedgies aren't known for getting on so each guy has his own bachelor pad and the bottom press is going to be storage for their food and other bits and bobs. We went to Homebase today and picked up some paint to decorate it. Shanes going for an orange theme and i'm going for royal blue! 

We can't adopt them until they are six weeks old which is next week but we have been keeping in touch with the breeders since they where born, this is the youngest photo we have.

 More cute pictures!!!
