Things I've learned as a 3-day hedgehog owner.

I got a hedgehog 3 days ago, his name is Pinto, and I feel like I've grown as a person since he's entered my life.
  1. It takes time for them to learn how to use that unnecessary thing you bought them.
    I bought Pinto a $4 miniature cat bed, and since then he's been flipping it over and sleeping under it instead... But look what I woke up to this morning! Proud mom moment for sure.
  2. They will steal your blankets and feel no shame.
    Pinto loves blankets more than anything ever, so naturally he decided to be a thief and make MY blankie his own.
  3. They like to spit on themselves and it's really funny.
  4. They're kind of like dogs and it's the best thing.
