Millie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Millie
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Africa Pygmy Hedgehog
Home: North Carolina, USA
   This is Millie! She is very unique because not many have seen a hedgehog as a pet before, not to mention a white hedgehog, and no, she's not albino! I have had her since she was six weeks old (if you haven't seen a baby hedgehog, they are to die for adorable)!! She is my second hedgehog, her hedgehog brother is Ollie, he is about three! Millie is a very sweet, adorable baby! She will run miles every night on her wheel (as all hedgehogs do) and will sleep all day!!

    Her favorite treat is a scrambled egg she also loves to have a few kibbles of kitten food every once in a while. Her real name is Mildred and I call her that on occasion. She is a funny little girl, she isn't afraid of the dog barking at her or the vacuum cleaner running, but she is terrified of little noises from many feet away! She's in a big animal family of different creatures, but has a special place in my heart just like all my (and the rest of my families') pets!! Even though hedgehogs are cute, they aren't the right pets for everyone, so do you research before getting one!
