D'Artagnon, the Pet of the Day
Name: D'Artagnon
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: African Pygmy Hedgehog
Home: Ohio, USA
   D'Artagnon joined our family on just two months ago but I could tell right away that he lives up to his name, he's a lover. He is a "brown snowflake" hedgehog. He's very affectionate and even though he's only been here a short time he's already opening up the minute I pick him up. He loves to be held and to lay curled up on me for as long as I'll lay still.

    D'Artangan came to us from a hedgehog rescue. He's very active and loves to run in the ball we have for our hedgies. He goes all over the house and explores everything he can find. He also loves wheeling on his wheel but don't turn on the light, he'll stop what he's doing because he thinks he's invisible. His favorite foods are any canned and pouched cat foods which he'll attack before checking out his dry mix. He loves when he gets taken for walks and loves meeting new people. He's very affectionate!
