Diego, the Pet of the Day
Name: Diego
Age: Two and a half months old
Gender: Male
Kind: African Pygmy Hedgehog
Home: New York, USA
   Hi, everyone! My name is Diego. I'm a little baby hedgehog living in New York. My mommy bought me from a pet store not too long ago, and now I have a permanent home in her bedroom. I am still a little afraid of people sticking their hands in my cage, but once I am out, I am the most friendly and playful animal in the world. I love to run around and find things that I can squeeze into (like pairs of pants and socks and even sneakers), and I especially love playing tug of war with socks and pieces of rope. I am very sneaky, and I like to try to take mommy's rings off her fingers when she's not looking. She thinks it's cute, but knows not to let me have them so I don't choke on them. I am treated like a prince in my new home, having a cage meant for a full grown ferret and a really cool wheel that I love to run in all night long. I am a very happy and very spoiled little hedgehog.
