||New York, USA|
Juniper, a cinnacot African Pygmy Hedgehog. I have lived with
my owner, Lydia, for about a month. She bought me from a pet store. She
held my brother and sisters, and decided that I was the most lovable and
sweet hedgehog of us all. I was thrilled to go to a loving home with an
owner who spoils me!
I love my wheel and I enjoy exploring and digging. I like when Lydia
sings to me. She's made up some hilarious hedgehog songs! Sometimes when
I'm digging in my bedding, I get carried away and get bedding into my
food and water dishes! Lydia pretends to scold me but I know she's just
joking when she gives me a kiss on my nose and snuggles with me. I
recently got my first bath. It was not enjoyable! I tried to escape.
When Lydia washed my tummy with shampoo it tickled a lot! Afterward,
Lydia snuggled me in a towel until I was warm and dry. It's very
important for me to stay warm, so Lydia keeps a heating pad under my cage.
Lydia says I'm the best pet ever. I bring her many laughs and so much
