I realize that I said I was not gonna blog until after the move, but I thought I better post this so you can see it, because God knows how long it will take me to find it when I am unpacking and then take a picture, and upload it, and blog.
So, anywaddle…. Cody and I went shopping for the hedgehog stuff yesterday. I was going to get a bigger cage, but decided on this one because it had everything that I wanted and it was so darn cute.
See? It is shaped like a house!
Inside the cage is a litter box, a running wheel, a little bed to cuddle in and a food dish. The grey thing and the hay colored thing are for his feet, because walking on a metal floor would prolly hurt hims feet or maybe hims foot would go thru the bars. The grate on the bottom of the cage has small holes, but I just want to be sure one of his little feet don’t slip thru there. I know it looks pretty crowded in the cage, but I am planning on getting a playpen for him too, that looks like this:
You can also get a bottom and top for the playpen, so that it can be used indoors and outdoors. I would need a top outside for shade and inside to be sure the cats don’t climb in to “play” with him, and I need a bottom so that if he has an accident it doesn’t soak into the floor. It is made out of vinyl material and in the summer I can just set it out in the yard with no bottom so he can play in the grass.
The other development is that I have decided on a name for the little guy.
No, NOT Pico de gallo (Rikki and Michelle!), Pico Pricklepants. The other day I was searching a lot of words in spanish, like hedgehog, and quills, etc… and I found the name Pico. Pico means spike in spanish, and as soon as I read it I knew that I wanted to name him that!
So, yay! Now all there is left to do is GO GET HIM! (which I don’t do until the end of august… gah! long time to wait!)
