eBaby, the Pet of the Day
Name: eBaby
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: African Pygmy Hedgehog
Home: Manitou Springs, Colorado, USA
   eBaby is a very special hedgehog. Two days before Christmas last year, she was advertised for sale on eBay. There were numerous hedgehog lovers that got involved with the sale fearing that she would go to someone who really had no hedgehog experience or wanted a 'token mascot'. Since she was located within Colorado, we were able to make contact with the seller and stop the sale. She was in need of several baths and a nail trim. She loved her baths and settled into her new home immediately. Since she had previously only been called 'Hedgehog' we thought it fitting to change it to eBaby to which she began responding to right away.

    eBaby is a sweetheart of a hedgehog. She loves to have her belly rubbed and kissed. She likes to be in bed at night and watch TV. Being nocturnal, she is very active at night. She loves to wheel and barely gets off once she starts in each evening.

    Recently, eBaby went in to be spayed. It was found that she had numerous female problems and a raging infection. She was started on a triple dose of antibiotics. Sad thing is, if she hadn't come to our house that day, chances are no one would have been able to detect her physical problems until it was too late. She will always be a special part of our hedgie family.
