Maizy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Maizy
Age: Deceased, Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: African Pygmy Hedgehog
Home: Beach Park, Illinois, USA
   Maizy had come to us with another hedgehog Skittles as a rescue. I used to volunteer at a local animal shelter when they called me about a couple hedgehogs they got in. I came and picked them up to give them a new home. Maizy was a pretty sweet hedgehog and loved mealworms as her favorite treat. She always let me take photos of her in all sorts of themes, she'd never fuss or try to wriggle out of the outfits and because of her pictures became popular all around with everyone we knew. We lost her about a year ago to a stomach tumor and miss her very much, but will always have picture like this to remember sweet Maizy!
